Pork Stir-Fry Lettuce Wraps


  • 1 tbsp.oil 
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 lb. button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp. dry white wine 
  • 1 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce, plus more to taste
  • 1 tbsp. hot chili garlic sauce, plus more for dipping
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 1/3 bunch cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 12 leaves iceberg lettuce (optional) 
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)

Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add pork, ginger, salt and pepper and stir-fry until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and red onion and stir-fry until just softened, about 2 minutes. Add white wine, soy sauce and chili sauce and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add peppers and carrots and stir-fry until just tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer pork mixture to a large platter. Arrange cilantro, lettuce and green onions alongside pork and serve with extra chili sauce on the side, if you like.
