Mix the rice, water, and salt in a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat, cover the pot, and let the rice simmer for 40-50 minutes, until the rice is tender. Take the pan off the heat and let it sit, still covered, for another 5-10 minutes before serving.
While the rice is cooking, drop the coconut oil into a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is melted, crumble in the ground beef. Let the beef brown on the bottom, then start moving it around the pan so that is browns on all sides.
When the beef is about halfway cooked, toss in the garlic clove and diced red onion. Cook the mixture until the onions have softened and the beef is cooked through.
Stir the fish sauce, hot chili sauce, lime zest, and lime juice into the ground beef and let it cook, on low, for 3-5 minutes until the liquids have been absorbed into the meat.
Take the skillet off the heat and get the rest of the toppings and fillings ready.
Chop the cilantro and basil and wash and separate the lettuce leaves.
Stir 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp lime zest, and 1 tsp lime juice into the hot rice.
To make your wraps, fill each lettuce leaf with some of the rice, beef, fresh basil and cilantro, and extra hot chili sauce, if you like it spicy.
