Pork Mince Lettuce Cups

Pork is a really versatile meat and can be used in so many ways! Pork mince is hugely popular as it tastes delicious and can be used in so many ways!

One favourite way of using pork mince is stir-fried in a wrap. However, a great alternative is lettuce! It is not only super healthy, adds a lovely crunchiness and is good for those that are gluten intolerant or watching their carbohydrate – ideal for perhaps a paleo diet.
