I have had a pretty bad culinary week thus far. Somehow I managed to stab myself with a fork not only in the finger, but also the foot. I also have spilt almost every liquid I have come into contact with. BUT this is a new week, and with it comes some culinary luck. This recipe was the turning stone. The meat is a new flavor system I created. The lettuce wrap is the perfect balance between indulgent and freshness. It is a well composed dish that is sure to make you just as happy as me. I also look forward to eating the pork in several different ways in the coming week! Try this recipe and eat happy all week long!
