Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps

Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps

Every time we head over to P.F. Chang’s we all fight over the Chicken Lettuce Wraps and end up ordering another one…now I just make my own version at home – it’s even more flavorful with ground pork (in my humble opinion) and everyone has their own plate – so no fighting!

Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps
Pkg Rice Sticks
avocado oil
1 lb ground pork
salt & pepper
8 oz cremini mushrooms, diced
1 red onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 oz water chestnuts, drained & diced
Green Leaf lettuce leaves
Thai Sauce (recipe below)

Cook Rice Sticks as package directs; drain and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil on medium-high heat in a skillet. Add ground pork and cook 8 minutes until no longer pink, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from skillet. In same skillet add another tablespoon of avocado oil along with the diced mushrooms; sauté 3 minutes.

Roll some up into each leaf and eat….remember to put out a bunch of napkins ’cause these babies are so delicious but so messy!
