Oriental Minced Pork in Lettuce Leaves

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by The Flying Chef

This is a very tasty, quick and easy recipe to throw together. I serve it in iceberg lettuce leaves as a great low carb meal, but if prefer carbs it is great served with noodles.

what fun!!! i had 1lb packages of ground pork and ground chicken (instead of veal) so i sort of adjusted accordingly. I used 2 bell peppers & 2 cans of bean sprouts since i couldn't get fresh. :(dh's comment was that he usually doesn't like lettuce wraps but loved this. THERE WERE NO LEFTOVERS!! My wok was full....2lbs of meat plus all the other stuff....GONE. I think that says it all. ;) absolutely delicious! thank you! made for Aussie Swap 7/11.

  1. Heat oil in a pan or wok, stir-fry onion and garlic until onion is soft, add both minces and stir-fry until cooked through.
  2. Add capsicum and sauces, reduce to a simmer, cook uncovered, stirring occasionally for about 4-5 Min’s.
  3. Add sprouts and cook until they soften slightly but are still crunchy, stir in green onions and seeds.
  4. Divide lettuce leaves among plates and spoon pork mixture into leaves.
  5. Tip: After removing outer dead leaves, cut the end off lettuce and hold under cold running water, the leaves will fall off one by one, intact.
