Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

I made the recipe as written and I would not change a thing. The wraps turned out great. I prefer this recipe over the chicken lettuce wrap recipe I have made in the past. The pork has a great flavor. I will absolutely make this recipe again. Read More

This was just as delicious as I’d hoped after seeing the recipe and the reviews! The complexity of flavors was especially good. I had sausage on hand, so subbed that for ground pork, and added chopped almonds in place of water chestnuts. Used a little less salt because the sausage had plenty. My husband loved his first lettuce wrap. And we both enjoyed the peppery zing that the ginger gave. We’ll be having this often! Read More
