Asian Lettuce Cups

  • Cut cucumber in half; cut one-half into 1/4-inch pieces (reserve second half for other use).

  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place oil in pan, then add pork, mushrooms, and pimientos; brown 5–7 minutes, stirring to crumble meat, or until no pink remains. Drain fat, if needed.
  2. Add marinade to pork mixture; cook and stir 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in diced cucumber. Fill each lettuce cup with pork mixture and top with noodles. Roll or fold lettuce around mixture and serve.
