    These little pork lettuce cups are tasty, easy and fast. They are a perfect choice for anyone who is counting carbs. I used Boston lettuce as the leaves tend to "fold" easily. I served with extra Chinese hot sauce and mustard on the side. Yummy. Thanks Lene.

    These pork cups were enjoyable, but next time I will add another chili, they were surprizingly mild. I left out the bean sprouts, didn't have any in, I don't think it make a lot of difference, they were a good taste without them. Loved the crunch of the water chestnuts and the crisp lettuce. Lettuce wraps/cups are one of our favourite things. We will make these again, thanks for sharing a keeper.
