Tuesday = Chilli Pork in Lettuce

I've never really been one to make anything mince pork related but the more Asian style dishes I make the more comforable I am with it.

This dish is fabulous!! If there are only two of you you won't need any side dishes, but you could easily feed at least four people with a side of spring or egg rolls!

1 romaine lettuce
400g minced pork
250g mushrooms diced
4 tbsp hoisin sauce
juice of 1 lime
1 red chilli finely chopped
Asian noodles
small handful of fresh chopped coriander

1) Break the lettuce into individual leaves and arrange on the plates

2) Dry-fry the mince and mushrooms for 5 minutes until the mince is browned and cooked through. Add the hoisin sauce, lime juice, and chilli, and fry for 2-3 mins.

3) Stir in the coriander. Serve in a bowl. To eat, place some noodles on the lettuce, then spoon a little of the pork mixture onto the leaves and roll it up like a wrap.
