5 Spice Pork Lettuce Wraps

This is a super easy, tasty cheeky little number.   Perfect for a quick midweek dinner especially when the weather is glorious!

The first time I came across lettuce wraps, was when a friend of mine was on a low carb diet.   I was totally unconvinced that using lettuce would be able to take the place of my beloved tortilla wraps, taco shells etc.     But I am to hold my hands up high on this one, and declare that I was totally wrong – because I then became a total convert!    I find that using lettuce wraps in a recipe such of this, compliments and takes it to another level!   Sometimes, when I am using soy in a recipe, I find it to be a little too harsh – a bit too salty, and am left with that in my mouth for hours – but when you use lettuce wraps they really change the flavour, and refresh your palette!  I added the yoghurt on top to give it another texture and takes it to another level!

Best part about this recipe, is that it

You Will Need:

250g 5% Extra Lean Pork Mince
1 Tsp Chinese 5 Spice
1 Garlic Clove Minced
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
Frylight/Calorie Controlled Oil Spray

To Serve:
1/2 Iceberg Lettuce (can use baby gem if you prefer)
1/2 Cucumber Sliced into Batons
2 Spring Onions Sliced Lengthways
4 Tbsp 0% Fat Greek Yoghurt


In a frying pan sprayed with oil, cook the pork until browned.

Add the Garlic, 5 Spice and Soy, stir until the spices have dissolved and are rich throughout the sauce.  Cook for a few minutes, so that the pork soaks up all the soy but is still juicy.

Separate the lettuce leaves, pile in the pork, top with the spring onions and cucumber and a dollop of yoghurt
