Glazed Pork Lettuce Wraps Recipe

How to make Glazed Pork Lettuce Wraps


  1. Heat saucepan on medium heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  2. Dice onion, chilli and mince garlic. Add to saucepan and cook until soft.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients to pan and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes, until the sauce thickens slightly. 
  4. Remove from heat, let cool slightly.
  5. Place the pork and ¾ of the marinade into a non-reactive dish and stir to coat. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Remove from the fridge half an hour before cooking.
  6. Preheat a chargrill or bbq to high. Grill the pork for 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Place on a plate and cover loosely with foil to rest for 10 minutes.
  7. Grill pineapple slices for a few minutes on each side or until nicely charred. Slice into strips.
  8. Trim excess fat off the pork and slice into strips.
  9. Place a slice of pork and a slice of pineapple in each lettuce cup. Top with red onion, chilli and coriander and serve with a drizzle of the reserved marinade.

Tip: As this is an acid-based marinade, be sure to not marinate the pork for too long or it will affect the texture.
