  1. 1

    Prepare The Ingredients

    Separate leaves of lettuce for cups.

  2. 2

    Cook The Beef

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil, ground beef, garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Remove from burner. Transfer ground beef to towel-lined plate, leaving as much liquid behind as possible.

  3. 3

    Make The Slaw

    Combine slaw and basil pesto aioli in a mixing bowl.

  4. 4

    Build the Cups

    Place a lettuce cup on a clean work surface (or layer two cups for extra crunch and structural support). Fill with a few spoonfuls of ground beef and top with roasted red peppers and slaw. Repeat for about five more lettuce cups.
