Vietnamese Pork Lettuce Wraps
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + standing Cook: 10 min.
This is a great recipe! A big hit with the whole family. I used Monkfruit because we do low carb and eliminated hoisin sauce. Also, out of fish sauce. The pickled carrot & onion made the dish. Will definitely make it again. Also could make vegan for my daughter easily with Beyond Burger.
I just made these and to me it turned out perfect! The sugar and vinegar dissolved without any problem even cold. I might try it warm next time to see if that makes a difference!
So easy if you prep first . Great flavor and the pickled carrot and onion was very bright with crunch. I had the fish sauce to add too. Boston lettuce is a textural choice with this for a beautiful presentation.
I haven't made this yet but it seems to me you should mix the vinegar mix in hot if not boiling water to dissolve the salt and sugar, then cool. Salt and sugar will not dissolve in cool water properly.
I haven’t made this yummy looking recipe yet. I just want to ask what would be a good substitute for the mirin?
I made this tonight and it was a big hit with my family! This was very delicious and healthy. I didn’t have any mirin so I replaced it with 1 tbsp rice vinegar and 1 tsp sugar and it worked well. It may seem like a lot of prep work but it’s worth it. Would make it again.

Lots of chopping. but, so worth it! My husband and I loved it and will try it again!
What a wonderful and delightful mix of flavors. The added bonus is everything is fresh and healthy. This recipe even won over the harshest skeptic in my family, which was my 23 year old son. He said that was the, 'fastest I have ever eaten a meal and it was great'. So, this recipe gets 5 stars from everybody in the family.
This was wonderful! And so different from my usual midwestern fare. The only change I made was to sub low fat ground turkey breast for the pork...so my husband could cheerfully eat it. We loved it...and we are old people!
