Easy Asian Lettuce Cups Recipe

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

Make an easy Asian-style appetizer by filling lettuce leaves with a spicy mixture of ground pork and topping with soy sauce. Just be sure to have plates or napkins available since the mixture can sometimes drip a little.



  1. In a large frying pan, heat oil over high heat and add pork. Cook pork, stirring, until starting to brown. Drain excess fat.
  2. Stir in green onions, allspice, ginger, garlic, and tamari. Cook until green onions are tender, about 2 minutes.
  3. Place 2 lettuce leaves on each plate. Spoon pork mixture into leaves. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon plum sauce and cilantro.
