Nice easy meal and fun for the kids!

Preparation Time: 30 Min
Cook Time: 20 Min
Ready In: 50 Min

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 cups diced (1/2-inch) watermelon
  • 12 iceberg lettuce leaves

Directions

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy, non-stick skillet over high heat. Cook and stir the garlic, ginger, and onion in the hot oil until fragrant, about 1 minute; add the ground pork to the mixture and cook until completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain any excess liquid from the skillet.
  • Reduce the heat to medium. Add the carrot and celery to the pork mixture; cook and stir until the carrot and celery begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the soy sauce and green onions into the mixture; remove the skillet from the heat and add the hoisin sauce and pine nuts. Stir the mixture until evenly mixed. Fold the watermelon into the mixture.
  • Spoon the pork mixture into the middle of the lettuce leaves; wrap the lettuce around the filling to serve.
