This is really good! Super quick and easy. I especially like that the ingredients are pretty simple. I think I was a little liberal with the soy sauce because they were a little salty, but I will definitely make these again. And again, and....well, you know what I mean :)

I LOVE this recipe! So messy, but so good. They neglected to mention the garnishes of julienne of carrot and scallion and a spritz of fresh lime, which all together make for the most delectable, fresh and light dish. You must try it! You'll love it.

I've made this recipe twice. Today i turned it into grd turkey meat balls by adding a couple tablespoons of potato starch. It is going to an EarthDay potluck. The meatballs look pretty in the Boston lettuce leaves with red

One of the first recipes of late that my boyfriend has raved about. Super fast and easy to make with tasty results. I have made it with both ground turkey and ground chicken and we liked it both ways. This is one recipe that will be made often.

Not my fav Martha recipe. Kind of hard to eat it. The turkey tasted pretty good, however I wouldn't make it again.
