 Customize your Meal Prep Asian Lettuce Wraps 

  • Any ground meat or veggie ground would work.

  • Like a bit more heat? Add more hot sauce to the recipe or drizzle hot sauce right on top of individual wraps.
  • You can also swap lettuce for rice or a bag of slaw!

Now lets talk Lettuce!

Iceberg lettuce offers a great crunch but can be a bit more difficult to wrap, tearing easily.

When prepping iceberg lettuce, cut the core off, slice the head in half, and then remove the core lettuce.

Bib lettuce; also known as Boston or butter lettuce, is an easier leaf for wrapping less likely tear while holding a good portion.

Romaine has a good crunch and the leaf can be folded like a taco instead of “wrapped”. Feel free to cut longer leaves in half to make them easier to hold. 

Or if you want; just like grabbing a bag of slaw for the Thai Peanut Ground Pork Bowl, feel free to check out your local grocery store for already prepped and packaged lettuce wraps.

Are you ready to add Meal Prep Asian Lettuce Wraps to your meal plan? (or freezer)

After cooking, portion out the ground pork filling (or whatever ground you have used) and store in an air tight container (keeps up to 4 days in the fridge or up 3 months in the freezer).

When freezing, you want to make sure to allow the filling cool completely to prevent freezer burn.

 When prepping your lettuce, wash and dry well. Store in the fridge in an air tight container. I only prep what I need for the week and store up to 4 days. DO NOT freeze the lettuce, no one likes soggy lettuce!

  1. Noticed now that the line says juiced and zested, but the zest isn’t added anywhere in the instructions?

  2. 5 stars
    So good, would definitely make it again. I’m vegan so I used textured veggie protein and lentils in place of ground pork, and broccoli instead of mushroom as I’m not a fan. So flavourful, bf and I both loved it. Thanks for a great recipe!
