canola or vegetable oil, for cooking

sesame oil, for cooking

1 red pepper, seeded and diced

1 lb ground pork

2 Tbsp. soy sauce (or to taste)

a small handful of cilantro, chopped (optional)

a few green onions, chopped

1/3 cup hoisin sauce (or to taste)

chopped peanuts, for serving

small red or green leaf or butter lettuce leaves, for serving


1Set a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of canola and sesame oil and sauté the pepper for a few minutes, until starting to soften. Add the pork and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon until it’s no longer pink. Add the soy sauce, cilantro and onions to the pan and cook, breaking everything up and stirring to combine until everything is cooked and any excess moisture has cooked off. Add the hoisin sauce and stir to heat through.


3Serve the pork mixture in a bowl, topped with peanuts, with lettuce leaves to wrap, roll and eat. (If you like, serve extra cilantro and peanuts alongside for people to add to their lettuce wraps.) Serves 4-6.
