Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of Hungry Planet Pork Thai Meatballs

  • 1 tbsp oil (I used grapeseed)

  • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup peanuts, crushed

  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped

  • Romaine or butter lettuce leaves

  • Shredded carrot for topping

  • Sliced cucumber for topping

Peanut Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp sriracha

  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger (or 1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger)

  • 2 tbsp of water

Directions:

  • Start by defrosting the meatballs.

  • Place all of the meatballs in a microwave safe dish and microwave them on high for 3-4 minutes or until they're soft.

  • Meanwhile, heat the tbsp of oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

  • Add the diced onion to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes.

  • Add the defrosted meatballs to the pan.

  • Cook for a few minutes until the meatballs are warmed through.

  • Using the back of a fork, smash the meatballs in the frying pan and break them all apart so it begins looks like ground pork.

  • Add the soy sauce and peanuts to the pan and mix to combine.

  • Cook for another few minutes or until the pork is warmed through and slightly browned.

  • Remove from heat and mix in the cilantro. Set aside.

  • Make the peanut sauce by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl, and use a fork or whisk to mix it into a thin sauce.

  • Assemble your lettuce wraps with the pork filling, then top them with shredded carrot, cucumber, and a drizzle of the peanut sauce.

  • Enjoy!

 

Tips and Tricks:

  • If the peanut sauce is too thick and isn't blending well, add a splash of plant-based milk or water until you get to the desired consistency. It should be thick but thin enough to drizzle.

  • Store any left pork mix in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

  • If lettuce wraps are too messy for you, try it in a salad! Place all of the lettuce wrap ingredients in a bowl and use the peanut sauce as your dressing.
