Asian lettuce wraps served with sauce and onions

Yep. This is totally on the menu for tonight. Thanks to allrecipes for sharing!



4 cups water

2 cups uncooked white rice

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 pound ground pork

1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1 (14 ounce) package firm tofu, drained and cubed

2 carrots, shredded

3 tablespoons hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/4 teaspoon hot chile paste

1 head iceberg lettuce leaves, separated


  1. In a saucepan combine the water and rice. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, until water is absorbed. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Cook the pork, green onions, and garlic for 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly brown. Add the tofu, carrot, hoisin, and soy sauce, stirring frequently until heated through. Remove from heat, and stir in the sesame oil and chile paste.
  3. To serve: spoon a small amount of rice into each lettuce leaf, top with the stir-fry mixture, and drizzle with additional soy sauce or hoisin, if desired. Wrap the lettuce leaf to enclose the filling.
