Paleo Whole30 Pork Lettuce Wraps Ground Pork recipe

A QUICK Weeknight Paleo Meal

Delicious but truly quick weeknight meals are sometimes hard to come by, especially when you're on a restricted diet like Paleo, Whole30, or AIP.

This is a dinner recipe that we eat often, and one that everyone in my family loves.

It's quick to make, has amazing Asian flavors, and is something you'll want to make over and over again.

Great for meal prep too

Even better – you can prep all the veggies and sauce ahead of time so that all you need to do at dinnertime is cook the pork.

And really, you could cook that ahead of time too and just reheat it at meal time.

Pork Lettuce Wraps Recipe

These pork lettuce wraps are Paleo and Whole30 compliant and I also offer some simple modifications to make it Autoimmune Paleo Protocol (AIP diet)-compliant (which are delicious as I ate this several times on my recent AIP).

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tbs Coconut Oil
  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Ginger, grated
  • 1 Lime, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 cup Sunbutter, Almond Butter (or Tigernut Butter for AIP **see note)
  • 3 tbs Coconut Milk
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 head Butter or Iceberg Lettuce (or similar leafy green)
  • 1 Carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 Bell Pepper, thinly sliced (omit for AIP)
  • 2 Green Onions (white and green parts), sliced
  • Cashews, chopped (omit for AIP)

Instructions

  1. Separate the individual leaves of the lettuce, rinse and dry well. Set aside. Cut the carrots into matchsticks, slice the bell pepper, slice the green onions, and chop the cashews. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the juice and zest of the lime, the sunbutter, the coconut milk, and the fish sauce. Thin with more coconut milk as needed until desired thickness. Set aside.
  3. Heat the pan over medium heat and then add the cooking oil. Add the garlic and ginger to the pan and saute for a minute until fragrant. Add the pork to the pan, season it with the salt and cook, stirring often, until cooked through.
  4. Serve by scooping some pork into each lettuce leaf, adding a dollop of sauce, and then adding the toppings of carrots, green onions, bell pepper, and cashews.

Notes

**Make a quick tigernut butter by whisking 1/4 cup of tigernut flour with 1-2 tbsp of avocado oil or melted coconut oil. (See how to do this in this 30-second Tigernut Butter post)
