Crispy, full of flavor and super duper fresh! These Ginger Pork Lettuce Wraps are the perfect weeknight dinner solution.


  • ¾ pound lean ground pork
  • 2 large scallions, thinly sliced on the bias
  • 1 sweet bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 recipe Pickled Carrots (below)
  • 8 large lettuce leaves (bibb, for example)


  1. Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium heat and add the pork. Cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 to 6 minutes. Drain any excess fat. Add the scallions and bell pepper and cook until crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in the mustard, garlic and ginger and cook 1 minute more. Remove skillet from the heat and add the lime juice, hot sauce and soy sauce. Garnish with cilantro.
  2. Portion pork among lettuce leaves and top with Pickled Carrots. Roll up and enjoy!




Pickled Carrots


2 medium carrots, peeled

¼ cup water

¼ cup rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

½ teaspoon kosher salt


1. Slice carrots paper thin. (Hint – use a mandolin or food processor to make this task easier.) Set aside.

2. Add the water, vinegar, sugar and salt to a pint-size jar and stir to combine. Add the carrots and push down to submerge under the liquid. Cover with a lid and refrigerate until ready to enjoy.
