Lettuce wrap with minced pork

Preparation: 15 min | Cooking: 15 min | Servings : 4


15 ml (1 tbs) olive oil
450 g (1 pound) ground beef
2 medium grated carrots
250 ml (1 cup) sweet peas, julienne cut
1 sliced onion
12 large lettuce leaves
2 sliced green onions
Fresh coriander


2 chopped garlic cloves
15 ml (1 tbs) grated fresh ginger
60 ml (1/4 of cup ) of reduced sodium soy sauce
30 ml (2 tbs) of ketchup
15 ml (1 tbs) of brown sugar or honey
10 ml (2 c. à t.) of spicy sriracha sauce
Salt and pepper


Mix the ingredients of the sauce and reserve. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick pan and fry the onion for a few minutes. Add the pork and sauté the meat for 5 minutes over medium-high heat.

Add grated carrot and sweet peas. Stir in the sauce and cook over medium heat until the meat is completely cooked.

Transfer the meat mixture to a dish and place in the center of the table. Each guest can prepare his lettuce wrap, adding green onions and coriander, to taste.

Tip: Do you have leftover rice cooked in the fridge? Do not hesitate to add it to the pan 3 minutes before the end of the cooking.

Vegetarian option: Replace chopped pork with extra-firm tofu.
