Pork Lettuce Wraps

Updated: Jul 4

Fresh, healthy lettuce wraps with ground pork, fresh veggies and a little drizzle of sauce on top

Here we have Pork Lettuce Wraps. My lettuce wraps are topped with a ground pork mixture, carrots, bean sprouts, a sprinkle of peanuts and drizzled with a sweet sauce over the top. Perfect for a well balanced meal and something you would find on a Chinese or Thai menu. They remind me of the ones from PF Chang's I would eat growing up or when I would go out for sushi at Screaming Tuna. Light, healthy and packed with so much flavor in every bite! You will be wanting these in your meal plan every week; plus you can change the protein or veggies to accommodate for the flavors you're craving.
