Ingredients

  • 1tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 500g lean minced pork
  • 50g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 3tbsp Kikkoman Tamari Gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1tbsp clear honey
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 225ml chicken stock
  • 1tbsp chopped fresh sage
To serve
  • Cup-shaped lettuce leaves, eg little gem, iceberg
  • Shredded spring onions and finely sliced red chilli

Method

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the shallots over a low heat for 5 minutes until softened.

Turn up the heat to fairly high, add the pork mince and fry for about 5 minutes or until the meat is browned, stirring frequently and breaking up any lumps with a spoon.

Add the mushrooms, Kikkoman Tamari Gluten-free soy sauce, honey, lime juice, stock and sage and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until most of the excess liquid has evaporated and the sauce is quite thick.

Spoon the pork mixture into a serving bowl and sprinkle with shredded spring onions and finely sliced red chilli. Pile the lettuce leaves in another dish or on a board.

Leave diners to spoon a little mince onto a lettuce leaf and roll the leaf around the filling to eat.


Tip
When using iceberg lettuce, the easy way to separate the leaves without tearing them is to hold the lettuce upright under cold slow running water and the leaves will then peel away easily.
