Lettuce Wraps with Spiced Pork

Finally, I had some time to cook. The Husband and I have been on a health kick lately so todays recipe is super healthy. We got it from the Eating Well Diabetes Cookbook and I was very pleased. In the book, it has a sauce that goes with it but for the sake of saving time I skipped the sauce.

Lettuce Wraps with Spiced Pork
3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
1 pound thin boneless pork chops, trimmed of fat
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 8-ounce can sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and coarsely chopped
1 8-ounce can sliced bamboo shoots, rinsed and coarsely chopped
8 ounces shitake mushrooms
4 scallions, sliced
1 head iceberg lettuce, leaves seperated

1. Heat 2 teaspoons canola oil over medium heat. Add pork; cook until no longer pink. Transfer to plate. wipe pan clean.

2. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil, garlic, and ginger; cook, stirring constantly until fragrant. Add water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, and mushrooms. Cook stirring constantly until mushrooms have softened.

3. Return pork to pan and stir. Serve sprinkled with scallions and wrapped in lettuce leaves.

Yummy end result
