Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes. Yield: Makes 8 servings

Yummy and healthy - this Asian Lettuce Wraps Recipe is super easy and makes a surprisingly quick, flavorful, and healthy weeknight meal all in one pan. What makes this recipe special is its blend of nuanced flavors and textures.

One of my favorite Chinese starters – Lettuce Wraps with pork, loads of hidden crunchy vegetables in a tasty savory brown sauce, bundled up in fresh lettuce. Delicious and bursting with flavor, Asian Lettuce Wraps are an exceptional idea for entertaining or a family-style meal.


  • teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground or minced pork
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 16 butter lettuce leaves
  • teaspoons plum sauce
  • tablespoons chopped cilantro



Step 1: In a large frying pan, heat oil over high heat and add pork. Cook pork, stirring, until starting to brown. Drain excess fat.

Step 2: Stir in green onions, allspice, ginger, garlic, and tamari. Cook until green onions are tender, about 2 minutes.

Step 3: Place 2 lettuce leaves on each plate. Spoon pork mixture into leaves. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon plum sauce and cilantro.
