Lone Mountain Wagyu

Lone Mountain Wagyu raises 100% full blooded wagyu cattle in New Mexico. Their cattle is pasture raised, fed an all-vegetarian diet of grasses, and raised humanely for better quality meat. You might have heard of Kobe beef, famous for being rich, delicious, and tender. Lone Mountain Wagyu is similar but raised in the US.

The food allergy mom in me loves that their meat is processed in a meat-only facility. The chance of cross contact with other allergens are minimized. Do note that their jerky does contain wheat and soy ingredients and their sausage links and summer sausage are also processed in the same facility.

Lone Mountain Wagyu samples arrived frozen and packed with dry ice in a cooler.

Of the three products that I sampled, the ground wagyu beef is my favorite for its versatility and wonderful beefy taste. I buy the highest quality and freshest organic ground beef when I make Beef Rice Noodle Rolls and the wagyu ground beef was perfect.

Ingredients Used for Wagyu Sausage Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps usually include chopped meat and veggies and seasoning.

Since I received one sausage, there was no chance for any do-overs! But if I could, I would chop the wagyu sausage smaller than pictured so that it’s easier to eat. When I had leftovers the next day, I added a spoonful of cooked white rice in each lettuce wrap. Adding rice was very satisfying and delicious.

The summer sausage is very large and makes a lot of filling. You will need two heads of iceberg lettuce to make about 16-20 lettuce cups. Or use one head of lettuce and eat the leftover filling over rice (very delicious!). If you need it, I also have a post about how to Make Beautiful Lettuce Cups for Lettuce Wraps.

I also added chopped jicama in the filling instead of water chestnut. Water chestnut is difficult to source fresh and I don’t like the prep. Jicama is more readily available, faster to prep, and has a crunchy sweetness that complements savory dishes.

The other ingredients such as shreded carrots and chopped scallions add a pop of color and flavor.

I recommend chopping the sausages into smaller pieces.

Allergy Aware Lettuce Wraps

This recipe as written is free of peanut, tree nut, egg, dairy, fish and sesame. It can easily be adapted to be free of the top 9 allergens. Use fresh ground beef instead of wagyu sausage, which has soy and wheat in it. I also have a lettuce wrap recipe using ground chicken.

If you have have a soy or oyster allergy, also substitute with a soy free soy sauce, and mushroom sauce. If you need help with the seasoning ingredients, check out What’s in Nut Free Wok’s Cupboard? Allergy Aware Ingredients.

You might end up with lots of extra iceberg lettuce that you can’t make into lettuce cups. Stir fry them with oyster sauce for a great side dish.
