Plum-Glazed Asian Lettuce Wraps

Plum-Glazed Asian Lettuce Wraps


1 pound ground pork (not sausage)
1 to 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup plum sauce or sweet and sour sauce (Kikkoman)
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 can (8 ounces) chopped water chestnuts, drained
¼ cup Dierbergs Fresh Cut Diced Red Bell Pepper
¼ cup Dierbergs Fresh Cut sliced green onion
Butter lettuce or iceberg lettuce leaves
Diced cucumber, radishes, or sugar snap peas (optional)
Shredded carrot (optional)
1 can (3 ounces) crispy rice noodles (La Choy)


Heat wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, ginger root, and garlic; stir-fry until pork is no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Drain any excess fat.

Add plum sauce, soy sauce, water chestnuts, bell pepper, and green onion; cook stirring often until pork is evenly coated with sauce and mixture is heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes.

To serve, spoon warm pork mixture into lettuce leaves. Top with diced or shredded veggies of your choice; sprinkle rice noodles over top. Wrap to enclose filling. Serve immediately.
