Ingredients
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 inch knob ginger, minced (about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce
  • 1 large carrot, juilianned
  • 6 small radishes, sliced thinly.
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
garnish
Instructions
  1. Cut the pork into small strips.  I cut the tenderloin in half, then sliced small strips from there.

  2. Place all other ingredients except the olive oil  into a plastic bag and mix well.  Then add pork strips and marinate for 30 minutes to one day in refridgerator.  Allow meat to come to room temp for 30 minutes before cooking.

  3. Using a grill pan, (an skillet will do if you don't have one.  Grill pans just leave better sear marks.) heat the stove to high.  Pour olive oil into the pan once hot, and swirl to coat evenly. 

  4.  Using tongs, add meat leaving space in between to allow for cooking. (You use tongs to avoid dumping all marinade in with the meat. This allows for searing to occur.) Reserve marinade. 

  5. Cook meat about 5-7 minutes turning once and cooking until cooked through.  Once all meat is cooked, remove from pan and add in leftover marinade and cook for 5 minutes.

  6. Serve pork wrapped in lettuce and top with carrots and radishes.  You can serve cooked marinade along side if someone wants some for added sauce.  Add cilantro and Sriracha if desired.
