Pork Lettuce Wraps Recipe

My husband loves eating at PFChang's so I decided to try and duplicate their appetizer of lettuce wraps. I substituted a few items to make it original. He loves them so much I'll usually make a double batch and serve it as our main course. —Brenda Buerkle, Riverto, Wyoming
