Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps
With Water Chestnuts and Sesame Dipping Sauce


Start with lean ground pork, season it to perfection with ginger and Sriracha, and then spoon the mixture into crisp lettuce cups. When paired with a savory Asian sesame dipping sauce, the result is a healthy mélange of tastes and textures that's fun to eat.


Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps
With Water Chestnuts and Sesame Dipping Sauce

This week's recipe comes from
Chef Justin Paruszkiewicz at homechef.com

1½ oz. Water Chestnuts
2 Green Onions
1 Head of Butter Lettuce
¼ oz. Cilantro
1 lb Ground Pork
2 fl. oz. Hoisin Sauce
3 tsp. Sriracha
2 tsp. Chopped Ginger
4 oz. Slaw Mix 1
½ fl. oz. Asian Sesame Dressing

Drain and coarsely chop water chestnuts. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Separate leaves of lettuce for cups. Slight browning on the outer leaves is normal and edible, but you may trim outer leaves if desired. Stem cilantro.

Place a medium non-stick pan with 2 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add ground pork to hot pan and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no pink remains, 8-10 minutes. Drain meat in wire-mesh strainer, using bowl to collect excess fat. Return cooked meat to pan.

Return pan with cooked pork to medium-high heat. Combine hoisin sauce, water chestnuts, Sriracha (to taste), white portions of green onions (reserve remaining for sauce), and ginger in hot pan with pork. Stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes. Remove from burner and add a pinch of salt.

Place a lettuce cup on work surface (or layer two leaves for extra crunch). Fill with a few spoonfuls of pork mixture. Top with slaw mix. Repeat for each lettuce cup.

Combine Asian sesame dressing and green portions of green onions in a mixing bowl. Plate dish as pictured on front of card and garnish with cilantro leaves. Bon appetit!
