Dinner Is Served: Moo Shu Lettuce Cups

Today on Dinner Is Served we will be learning how to make these delicious Moo Shu lettuce cups. I’ve tried something similar to this before and it was so delicious. I’ve always loved eating lettuce with my food because I enjoy the crunch it adds. So, if you are like me and enjoy some crunch in your food you might enjoy this!
