Asian Lettuce Wraps (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 10/16/2014 - For those lucky enough to have traveled in Lao, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, these lettuce wraps might seem familiar. Variations on lettuce cups are fairly common in the cuisine of those countries.

These lettuce cups are easy to make, barbecue friendly, and are usually a big hit with party guests.

These are made with pork, but I’ve seen variations using chicken, beef, or even fish.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Cook and stir pork and cooking oil in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.

Drain and discard grease; transfer pork to a bowl. Cook and stir onion in the same skillet until slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

Stir hoisin sauce, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, and chile sauce into onions.

Add water, green onions, sesame oil, and cooked pork; cook and stir until the onions just begin to soften, about 2 minutes.

Place meat in a bowl and serve with cold, cooked vermicelli, and lettuce.

To eat, place a small amount of noodles, meat, and scallions, mint, as desired, and wrap in lettuce like a small burrito.

Hi, looks delicious. I have a couple questions.

1) In the instructions, you say to "Add water, green onions, sesame oil, and cooked pork". How much water? It isn't specified in the ingredient list.

2) At the end you say to place "small amount of noodles, meat, and scallions, mint, as desired, and wrap in lettuce like a small burrito." In a previous step you said to add the green onions to the skillet and cook them with the pork. Can you clarify? Are the green onions cooked with the pork or kept to the side as a garnish?

3) In the photo, it looks like the dish is served with some sauces in small cups. I was curious what the sauces were.

Thanks!

Please re-test the board...I believe that the issues should be fixed. Please let me know...and thank you!!!

Are these safe? The ingredients are:. Whole grain oats, sugar, canola oil, rice flour, honey, salt, brown sugar syrup, baking soda, soy lecithin, natural flavor. I am new at this, but nothing says no to me. Am I wrong?

Love bacon and eggs but don't think it would be a good idea to eat it everyday Not sure about oats. I didn't handle KIND Raspberry Granola (w/oats) well. But that was when I was adding milk.

I feel your pain. Gluten free and corn free is difficult. I eat Erewhon rice Crisps or Barbara's makes a rice crisp cereal as well. You can also try yogurt. Read the ingredients some have corn syrup or corn starch. Just an fyi for you high fructose corn syrup does not contain any corn.

That's terrible. I've been wondering why you haven't been around last few days. I Should have remembered your con. I'm so sorry it wasn't what you were hoping for. We all tend to make mistakes when we're excited about stuff, makes our brains go a bit wonky. hope your dads mouth wasn't dirty ...
