Pork lettuce wraps with Saucí Gin+Scal
Yield: 4 servings (+ leftovers)
Time: 15min to 8 hours, depending on which you make
Fresh, healthy dinner or appetizer. The crunch of romaine lettuce makes a nice alternative to soft tortillas, and keeps this dish gluten and corn-free. These work great with either pork, chicken, beef, or seasoned veggies. You can choose your own adventure: if time is short, use ground meat or take-out, if not do a nice slow-roasted or smoked pork shoulder or whole chicken.
Lettuce wraps are a casual, fresh, healthy dinner or lunch. Of course the same idea works perfectly with tortillas, but these are lighter and more Asian-inspired than Latin-American. They also work great with chicken or beef instead of the pork. For a vegan version, use a medley of grilled or sautéed veggies and mushrooms. As a side note, this same recipe would be delicious with the Saucí Verde also.
You can do this quickly or you can do some homemade slow-roasted, slow-cooker, or slow-smoker meat. If you are weeknight time-pressed you can quickly cook up some ground pork or chicken in a skillet with a few seasonings, or grab some pork from a BBQ take-out, or a rotisserie chicken from your favorite place. Or for a quick, delicious vegan/vegetarian version, stir-fry some veggies such as squashes, peppers and mushrooms.
We’ve done them all. The most important part is the Saucí Gin+Scal.
