Spicy beef wraps with peanut sauce

Well, I never really took measurements when making this recipe.  I'll attempt to guess the amount, but you might need to make some adjustments.  If I can get it right this is AMAZING :)

Serves 6 to 8.
Difficulty: Moderate.
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Spicy Beef
1.5 lbs ground beef, ground turkey will give this a different flavor.
1/4 c. Soy sauce
1 t. Fish sauce
2 T. Worchestire sauce
1/2 t. Sesame oil
1/2 can Beef stock
To taste, we like 1 T. Sriracha HOT Chili Sauce, clear with green cap
3 good size cloves Minced garlic
Sprinkle Red pepper flakes
1/4 t. Chili powder
 1/4 t. Ground ginger

Brown beef in large pan.  Add all ingredients and simmer until thickened.  Like I said, I never took measurements so keep tasting until it reaches the flavor and spice you like.  I think this is pretty close to the measurements I used.

Peanut Sauce
2 T. olive oil
1 med. onion finely chopped
1/4 c. finely chopped red pepper
1/2 c. chunky peanut butter
1/4 c. (or less if you don't like spicy) Sriracha HOT chili sauce
1/2t. cayenne pepper
1 c. water
1 clove minced garlic
pinch cumin
squeeze lime

Heat olive oil in over medium heat in pan.  Add chopped onion and red pepper.  Cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Reduce heat and stir in peanut butter, cook until melted.  Gradually stir in water until it peanut butter thins, don't use all the water yet.  Add in the rest of the ingredients, stir to incorporate.  Keep adding water as the sauce thickens.  You might need more peanut butter depending on how spicy you want this to be.  Add more peanut butter and water as needed.

Serves in flour tortilla, with chopped cucumber (helps with the heat), lettuce, fresh basil & mint leaves.
