Recipe Notes

Freeze Ahead Instructions:

Skip cooking the eggs but complete the other Instant Pot steps. Place the cooked beef and vegetable mixture into a resealable freezer bag, seal, and freeze. On the day of cooking, take it out to thaw. Reheat in the microwave. Fry an egg up on the stove and assemble the lettuce wraps by adding the beef and vegetables, fried egg, and sauce to lettuce leaves.
