New Recipe: Hoisin-Lime Pork and Boston Lettuce Wraps

Tonight was a groundbreaking night at my house.  Now, this may sound unbelievable, but tonight was...




THE VERY FIRST TIME I'VE EVER COOKED PORK


I've mentioned before that I started out my life as an extremely picky eater.  I wouldn't eat pork.  There was NO WAY.  My mom made pork chops quite often, and I refused to touch them.  That's about the only pork I remember. I'm sure there were others, but it was eliminated from my repertoire pretty early on.


Since then, I do eat pork at times; however, this was literally the very first time I've ever purchased or handled pork.  Overall, it was a HUGE success! 


Tonight's meal was.... BANANAS.  Weight Watchers listed it as an appetizer, but I made it my meal - - a meal that I can't wait to eat tomorrow as leftovers.  SO GOOD.


This recipe is brought to you from this cookbook.  A fave in my place, as you know.

I've never heard of this hoisin sauce. I'll hav to look it up, because this sounds pretty good.

Holy moly, that looks good!

As a side note, I can't imagine never eating pork. I'm not eating it at the moment, and I feel a little bit of me die inside every day.

@Dad - The hoisin sauce is in the Asian section. It's a sweetish brown sauce. Seriously try this, you'll love it!

@Tim - Too funny! Might be cheaper to just make it on your own. :)

@Mama - I've eaten some pork, but not much. It's much better than I thought!!

Here is why I love this post:

1. I'm really not a fan of pork. In my mind it gives off this fatty connotation. However, I know you can buy lean cuts of it... I just haven't figured out a way to incorporate it into my repertoire. I don't like lettuce and other "salad" components (I'm sooooo picky) but I admit that your recipe does look good!

2. YOU could be WW new spokesperson... lol.. even though you live and breathe Jenny :)
