Ingredients

  • Lettuce Wraps:
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped ginger
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • ⅓ cup lime juice
  • ⅓ cup chopped lightly roasted peanuts
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 hot red chili, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Corn:
  • 6 ears corn
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

Directions

Separate lettuce leaves; rinse lightly and dry. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and sauté onion, ginger, and garlic 3 – 5 minutes. Add pork and cook until done, about 5 – 7 minutes. Drain excess fat from pan. Add lime juice, peanuts, cilantro, chili, and ¼ teaspoon salt, and cook an additional 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, and serve filling on top of lettuce leaves.

Clean silks from corn, leaving husks intact. Replace husks, and grill corn over medium heat 5 – 7 minutes. Rub warm corn with butter; sprinkle with chili powder, lime juice, and ⅛ teaspoon salt.
