We are apparently on an Asian food kick lately, and I’m not mad about it! These pork lettuce wraps are super tasty and real quick to make, which is pretty much the best combo! Seriously though, if you’re looking for a recipe with minimal ingredients and tons of flavor, look no more!
Little Time, Lots of Flavor
These fabulous pork lettuce wraps take only about 15 minutes to make and have just seven ingredients in them. So, basically you should just go take 15 minutes right now and make a batch!
Customize Your Greens
You can use a variety of greens for the shells in these pork lettuce wraps. Use something with a broad leaf so that you can pack it full of the porky goodness. Some great ideas are cabbage, especially for a little extra crunch, bibb, butter lettuce, chard or romaine. We used bibb when we took the photos for this post.

- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 green onions, diced (the white and green parts are used in separate steps)
- 1 tsp ginger, grated
- 2 lbs ground pork
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tsp hot sauce (optional)
- 2 bunches broad leaf greens (bibb, romaine, chard, etc.)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Cut up garlic and onions and grate ginger. Prepare lettuce leaves.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add in pork, garlic, ginger and the white portion of the green onion. Mix everything together and break the pork into small bits. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is browned and crispy, about 8-10 minutes.
Once the pork is browned, add in the green part of the onions, fish sauce, and hot sauce. Stir to mix and cook for another 2 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper as desired.
To serve, spoon pork mixture into lettuce leaves and enjoy.
