This Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps aka larb recipe is perfect for a low-carb/keto friendly appetizer or light lunch or dinner.
I have been craving,
I mean seriously jonesing for,
some Asian lettuce wraps.
But for some reason, I just don’t get off my rear and make them.
There is a local restaurant that has a terrific happy hour, and I always get their Asian Chicken Wraps. They are soooooo good I actually crave them in between visits.
I have been promising myself,
for quite some time now,
that I would crack down and make them at home.
It is hard when you can’t trust yourself.
Then Kevin accidentally brought home ground pork instead of ground sausage.
That had me stumped for a bit.
It has been so long since I made anything with ground pork my brain just wouldn’t kick into gear.
Then I was down at my local “watering hole”, which would be the bar my son works at, visiting with a few of the regulars I know. We always chat about food because, well what else do food bloggers talk about? And I mentioned my ground pork dilemma. Someone asked me if I had ever had larb.
I am sorry but “larb” just didn’t sound very appetizing but hey, that could just be me.
She laughed and explained that is was a Thai ground pork dish.
OK, that sounds waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than larb….right?
She gave me the rundown on what she usually puts in it, with me taking a few notes, and I had my dish.
I went home and got to cooking.
Then Kevin asked what I was making for dinner.
Did I tell him?
I told him just what it says here.
“Thai pork lettuce wraps”
*Whew* I dodged a bullet on that one, let me tell you!
Once I had these little beauties on a plate he was hovering. It drives him crazy that I have to take photos before we can eat.
Ahhh the hazards of loving a food blogger.
What happened after the photos?
Well, these didn’t last very long.
Yup, he loved them!
Now if I could only get him to love my Mexican food like he does the Asian dishes.
Oh well, I do love a challenge!
