Pork lettuce wraps

I cant take full credit for this recipe. My sweet mother-law introduced me to the honey and teriyaki Sauce and coconut cilantro rice. So light, simple and satisfying.

  • 1 pound ground pork unseasoned
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped water chestnuts
  • Tsp minced garlic
  • 3Tbs fresh ginger grated
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • Tbs oil
  • Romaine lettuce cleaned and dry

Rice -ricecooker

  • 1.5 cups jasmine rice
  • 3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Coconut milk
  • 2 Tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cop fresh chopped cilantro

Brown meat breaking apart as it browns. Set aside in a separate bowl.

While the meat is browning chop vegetables and have ready to cook.

Bring oil hot in pan again and add all vegetables and sauté for 7-10 minutes until onion wilts.

Add meat back to pan with teriyaki and honey. Simmer until meat really glazed.

Rice steamed- fork toss with coconut milk and cilantro and lime juice.

Assemble wraps and enjoy!
