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.

  • 16-20 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil

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!

thank you guys. I'm hoping the Gi will call back tomorrow. I'm getting the kitchen totally gluten free, except for a few things my sister who is a bit disabled is going to have. But no bread, flour, pasta and most other things will not have gluten. And my daughter doesn't go to school, she d...

Unprocessed food is great, but a life without chocolate no way! Am sure you will find a suitable brand. I don't eat Lindt, think they may use barley, others may know more. The Moser Roth are Aldi own brand. Looks like Aldi aren't in CR so not an alternative for you sorry. Maybe chec...

Ok guys, I'm not an expert. Maybe it was really just cc as Matt said. Or my body is just too sensitive now and this thing is too artificial/chemical. I feel that real unprocessed food is better for me now. It won't be a problem to find another brand. The Moser Roth doesn't sound familiar t...
