Asian Lettuce Cups


1 seedless cucumber
1 small head Boston lettuce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 lb ground pork
4 oz presliced baby portabellas
2 tablespoons diced pimientos (drained)
1/4 cup refrigerated ginger dressing
1/4 cup crispy rice or chow mein noodles (optional)


  • Cut cucumber in half; cut one-half into 1/4-inch pieces (reserve second half for other use).
  • Separate lettuce leaves into individual “cups.”


  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 dressing 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.

Noodle Salad


1 small red pepper

1 cup fresh broccoli florets

2 (3-oz) packages ramen noodle soup (any flavor)

1 (8-oz) can pineapple chunks in juice (drained)

1/2 cup refrigerated ginger dressing


-- Cut pepper and broccoli into bite-size pieces; place both in salad bowl.


1. Prepare noodle soup following package instructions. Squeeze noodle packages gently to break up noodles before opening. Do NOT add seasoning from packets.

2. Stir pineapple and dressing into broccoli mixture.

3. Drain noodles and rinse with cold running water until completely cool. Add noodles to salad; toss and serve.

Aprons Advice

-- Complete your meal with white rice and cinnamon sugar donuts for dessert.

-- Ground turkey or chicken breast is an excellent low-fat substitute for the ground pork.
