The other day I found ground (minced) pork for $1.32 a pound. That is cheaper than any other meat or fowl, so I bought two packages.
Having cleared out my refrigerator and assessed what I have to work with, I enjoyed my time in the kitchen preparing, cooking, and then eating my concoction.
I do not usually measure, and tonight was no different. So, bear with me as I give you my list; you will have to figure out for yourself what amounts and ingredients will suit your particular taste.
- Ground pork
- Chopped onion
- Minced garlic
- Chopped water chestnuts
- Chopped celery
- Chopped carrot
- Hot red pepper
- Rice vinegar
- Agave syrup
- Soy sauce
- Sesame oil
- Fish sauce
- Black pepper
- Lettuce leaves for wrapping
Simple, economical, filling, and healthy, this was one of my favorite meals in a very long time.
I cooked all the ingredients, browning meat first, before adding the vegetables, and then the sauce mix, and cooked until the sauce had thickened through evaporation.
All wrapped up, it makes a fairly low-calorie, healthy alternative to other wraps and tacos.
