Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps

This was really easy to make and nice to come home -- Rossy and I were pretty pumped cause it looked and smelt amazing, BUT we weren't impressed.  :(  So won't be making this again.
Makes 8 servings
2 lbs lean ground beef
3 Tbsp soy sauce
5 tsp chili garlic sauce
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 tsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (+ more for serving)
1/2 tsp salt
8 large lettuce leaves (I used romaine but you can use iceberg lettuce)
Chili garlic sauce (go easy, it's hot!)
Diced cucmbers
Shredded carrots
Minced red onion
Sliced green onion
Toasted sesame seeds
Place lean ground beef in the bottom of the slow cooker.
In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, garlic sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, lime juice and salt.    Pour mixture into the slow cooker.  Stir the sauce into the ground beef and break up the ground beef with a spoon.
Cover and cook on LOW for about 4 hours, or until beef is cooked through.  Break up the meat with a spoon.  Drain off any excess liquid.  Add salt and pepper to taste and extra lime juice to taste.
Scoop 1/8 of the meat into the middle of a large lettuce leaf.  Top with desired toppings (listed above). Eat like a taco and enjoy!
