15 lbs. ground sirloin
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
15 cloves garlic, minced
2-3/4 cups lime juice
2 cups Asian fish sauce
1-1/4 tablespoons crushed red pepper
7-1/4 lbs. lime cilantro flavored tortilla wraps or flour tortillas, warmed
1-3/4 lbs. red lettuce leaves
4 lbs. small red onions, thinly sliced
1-3/4 lbs. scallions, chopped
2-3/4 cups fresh cilantro, chopped
Place a heavy nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Sauté ground beef, ginger, and garlic 5 minutes, stirring often to break up lumps of meat, until beef is browned. Stir in lime juice, fish sauce, and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook 1-2 minutes, until liquid is evaporated by half.
Arrange 2 lettuce leaves over each tortilla. Spoon meat mixture over center of each tortilla. Divide remaining ingredients evenly over meat. Fold tortillas, enclosing mixture to make a packet.
