Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground pork, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground pork, working in batches if necessary, cooking until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as pork in Step 2, breaking up meat until no pink remains and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

  • If using Impossible Burger, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 2, breaking up burger until heated through, 7-9 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Drain and coarsely chop water chestnuts. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Separate leaves of lettuce for cups. Slight browning on the outer leaves is normal and edible, but you may trim outer leaves if desired. Stem cilantro, reserving whole leaves.

  2. 2

    Cook the Ground Pork

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add ground pork to hot pan and stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

  3. 3

    Cook the Filling

    Add white portions of green onions (reserve remaining for sauce) and ginger to hot pan. Stir until fragrant, 30-60 seconds. Add hoisin sauce, water chestnuts, Sriracha (to taste), and 2 Tbsp. water. Stir occasionally until combined and thickened slightly, 3-4 minutes. Remove from burner and season with a pinch of salt.

  4. 4

    Build Wraps and Finish Dish

    Place a lettuce cup on a clean work surface (or layer two leaves for extra crunch). Fill with a few spoonfuls of ground pork mixture. Top with slaw mix. Repeat for each lettuce cup. Combine dressing and green portions of green onions in a mixing bowl. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with cilantro leaves and serving dressing on the side for dipping. Bon appetit!
