Finger food at its best – lettuce leaves filled with a Chinese-style pork and mushroom mixture the whole family will love. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our harissa-glazed pork with jeweled bulgur wheat and quinoa dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.
- Toast the cashew nuts in a small, heavy-based pan, over a medium heat, until golden, moving them around in the pan often so they brown evenly. Set aside.
- Heat the groundnut oil in a large non-stick pan and fry the pepper, mushrooms and onions slowly until they turn soft.
- Add the finely minced pork and crushed chillies to the vegetables and mix well. Add the soy sauce and vinegar and mix together.
- Cook for a few more minutes, until the pork is heated right through. Spoon the mixture into the lettuce leaves and top with the cashew nuts to serve.
