1 cup chopped yellow onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup duck sauce
1 tablespoon crushed fresh (or bottled) ginger

3. Arrange the lettuce leaves around the outer edge of a large serving platter. Pour the meat mixture into the middle of the serving platter. To serve, allow each person to spoon some of the meat mixture (about 1/4 cup) into the middle of each lettuce leaf and wrap the leaf around the meat, taco style.
