Lee asked me what I was going to post today, and I said STICKY PORK recipe, and he said “OOOOooooo . . . . Can we have that for dinner tonight, that was really good”

It’s delicious over Broccolini, but it’s also great as a Lettuce wrap :) We’ve done both their equally good!

Sticky pork
1 tbsp Oil (peanut or vegetable)
300gr Ground Pork
3-5 cloves garlic (depending on your tastes)
1/2 cup fried shallots, sliced
1-4 thai red chilies, sliced (depending on your taste)
1 tbsp Lime Juice
1/2 tsp brown sugar
2-4 tbsp hoisin sauce (we call it asian ketchup here, you can find it in any Asian food store, or the asian isle at the grocery store)
2 tsp soy sauce

1) Pour Oil in pan, fry shallots, hot peppers and garlic until crispy. Remove from pan.
2) Add  a bit more oil to the pan, fry up ground pork, when almost cooked add the remaining ingredients (brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce and hoisin sauce, fried shallots, garlic and hot peppers from step 1).
3) Serve over steamed broccolini, or rinse some iceberg lettuce, and put some of the pork mixture inside and serve like a lettuce taco! YUM!!!

    Found this in the Fall, have made it about 5 times since then; it has become a new staple in our house. The kids ask for it much the same way Lee does in fact!

    We serve it with Boston lettuce as the wrap and thinly slice red peppers and use a peeler on some carrots and “pickle” them in rice wine vinegar, while I whip up the pork, to serve on top.

    Made this for dinner tonight. Served in lettuce cups. Very yummy! I did leave out the soy sauce, I was concerned it would be too salty. Thanks for a great recipe!
