Pork Lettuce Wraps
Pork lettuce wraps are a popular dish that typically consist of seasoned ground pork cooked and served in crisp lettuce leaves. They are also packed full of veggies and flavor! Pork lettuce wraps are a healthy and flavorful option for those looking for a low-carb or gluten-free meal, and they are high in protein. They are also highly customizable, allowing you to add or remove ingredients to suit your taste preferences.
1 lb Ground Pork
1 tablespoon Avocado Oil
½ Yellow Onion, finely chopped
1 cup Baby Bella Mushrooms, chopped
1 cup Zucchini, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground Ginger
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
¼ cup Side Dish Creamy Sesame
1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
2 tablespoons Coconut Aminos
1 cup Carrots, shredded
3 Green Onion, sliced
Salt and Pepper
1 head Savoy Cabbage
Heat a pan to medium heat and add 1 tablespoon avocado oil and ground pork. Brown the pork for 5 minutes.
Finely chop yellow onion, mushrooms, and zucchini. To expedite the chopping, you can use the food processor for the onion and mushrooms.
Add the chopped yellow onion, mushrooms, zucchini, ground ginger, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the pork. Continue to saute for 5 minutes.
Next, combine the Side Dish Creamy Sesame sauce, rice vinegar, and coconut aminos in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add this sauce to the pan along with the shredded carrots and continue to saute for 5 minutes.
While the meat is finishing cooking, pull apart the cabbage (or lettuce) leaves and rinse them. Dry them with a paper towel, being careful not to rip the leaves.
Scoop about ½ cups of the meat and veggie mixture into each cabbage cup and top with green onions. Serve and enjoy!
- If you like a little spice, be sure to add some Sriracha on top to give this recipe a little kick
- You can also use ground turkey or ground chicken in this recipe.
- I like Savoy cabbage the best because it is crisp and adds some crunch, but bib lettuce, romaine lettuce, or other cabbage work as well.
