    From the Test Kitchen

    Piled onto soft butter lettuce leaves, a savory filling of turkey, sweet peppers, and mushrooms come together with our umami-rich sauce, which combines peanut butter spread, sweet soy glaze, and spicy sambal. We're finishing each cup with crisp marinated cucumber and roasted peanuts for delightful crunch.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; separate the leaves. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter spread, soy glaze, half the vinegar, 2 teaspoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    Marinate the cucumber
    2 Marinate the cucumber

    In a bowl, combine the sliced cucumber and remaining vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the pork
    3 Cook the pork

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 6 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 1/4 of the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the pork is coated and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a large bowl.

    Cook the vegetables
    4 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and sliced peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat.
