12 wraps


  • 2 ⅔ cups water

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ⅓ cups long-grain white rice

  • 1 pound ground pork

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • ½ cup diced red onion

  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper

  • ½ cup diced carrot

  • ½ cup chopped water chestnuts

  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

  • cup low-sodium teriyaki sauce

  • ½ tablespoon honey

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 12 romaine leaves

  • 2 limes, cut into wedges

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste


  1. Bring water and salt to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Add rice. Reduce heat, and simmer, covered, until water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, brown pork in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to break up lumps, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate; drain grease from the skillet.

  3. Heat oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onion, bell pepper, carrot, water chestnuts, and ginger; cook, stirring, until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in pork, teriyaki, and honey; cook, stirring, until liquid has evaporated, 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Fluff cooked rice with a fork, then fold in 1/4 cup cilantro, coconut milk, and lime juice.

  5. Top lettuce leaves with pork mixture and rice. Garnish with lime wedges and chopped fresh cilantro.

Cooks' Note:

You can substitute napa cabbage for the romaine if desired.
