      Wonderful! Made this for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag game Jan-June 2013 and this was a hit. I followed the instructions except for adding some garlic chili paste (for some zing) and some bean sprouts and a little more onion. Delicious and easy for a hot summer day!. Thank you for posting.

      This was very simple to make with great results. I did not add the celery and served the pork over pasta. My fanily gobbled it up. Thanks for such a simple but great tasting recipe.

      We felt it needed a little more zip so I added 1 tsp chili flakes and it was super good - Lettuce wraps are a favorite in this house and yours will be made again
