Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 1/2 cup water and white sugar together in a small microwave-safe bowl. Warm in the microwave to dissolve sugar, about 30 seconds. Add 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, ketchup, lemon juice, and sesame oil; mix until dipping sauce is well-blended. Cover with plastic wrap and chill, about 30 minutes.

  • Combine dry mustard with a few drops of water. Mix in remaining water until mixture is the consistency of hot mustard.

  • Whisk 2 tablespoons soy sauce, brown sugar, and ½ teaspoon rice vinegar in a small bowl to make stir-fry sauce.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons peanut oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add pork; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, water chestnuts, mushrooms, green onions, and garlic; saute until flavors combine, about 2 minutes. Pour in stir-fry sauce; stir to coat pork mixture evenly, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Cut out lettuce stem and wash thoroughly. Discard outer leaf. Carefully peel off whole leaves and slice in half lengthwise. Arrange on a plate lined with paper towels.

  • Scoop dipping sauce into small bowls or ramekins. Mix in hot mustard and red chile paste to desired level of spiciness. Spoon pork filling into lettuce halves and roll up; top or dip wraps with dipping sauce.

This is the 3rd lettuce wrap recipe I have tried on allrecipes and by far this turned out to be the BEST! The sauce really really makes this so delicious that my husband couldn't stop talking about it! I'm not a mushroom person so I did leave out the mushrooms but followed the recipe exactly with that small exception. Honestly I can't wait to make this again! Thank you! Read More

Wish I would have taken a picture before we devoured everything. Make a double batch if you want left overs. We used butter lettuce for the wraps. Read More
