“Nice easy meal and fun for the kids!” - by Terri
Original recipe yields 12 wraps
- 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.

"Delicious! The sweetness of the watermelon plays well against the saltiness of the hoisin and the pine nuts. celery and lettuce add a nice crunch. I used leftover pork but otherwise followed the rec..." See moreipe exactly"
"I have made this twice. Once as written and once with chicken. Also as none of us like pine nut's used almond flake's 1st time and roughly chopped Macadame nut the following. All give a great flavour ..." See moreso you can use these if you wish. This must be prepared and serve'd as quick as can be. Watermelon has a high water content so isn't something that can be ( apart from the making's of the rest of the ingred.) mixed in and kept before serving. Have it ready and just throw it all together. It is a bit of fun. Tastes yummy and fresh. Great for summer. Will make this again and again."
"How is it that I'm only the third review in 3 years?? This dish is out-of-this-world delicious. I'm so happy I took a chance on it! It looks a tad sauce-heavy in the pan and I thought there was no wa..." See morey the watermelon would blend with these flavors, but the sweetness of the watermelon and ginger compliment the hoisin and soy sauce beautifully. Very refreshing and unique! If you don't have lettuce wraps, just serve over plain brown rice. We reheated some leftovers the next day and it doesn't taste QUITE as fresh, but it's still pretty darn good. I'll try it with ground chicken next. I highly recommend this straightforward and unique dish!"
