The Voice started back up this week! I forgot how much I love this show..Adam, Blake, you make me giggle like a little school girl. But the talent, woah, blows me away every time. I don’t know how they haven’t made a major star out of that show yet. They’re unbelievable.

My husband and I were addicted to Parenthood last year. When I was pregnant with my second son, we started watching all the seasons on Netflix, and got completely caught up shortly after he was born. We haven’t watched any of our shows from this past Fall because, yah, hotel-no DVR, etc. So we started watching Parenthood again this week. Totally another “oh man, I forgot how much I love this one too.” It makes me laugh and cry all at once. So much goodness and real life in there. (Except I can’t really relate to Crosby and Jasmine, my babies NEVER cried that much.)

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup hoisin
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons chili sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (or 1 teaspoon of fresh if you have it)
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil (or olive oil if you don't have coconut)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • For the Salsa
  • 1 mango, cubed
  • 1/2 cucumber, cubed
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and minced
  • Crack of salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • Lettuce of choice (I recommend, iceburg, butter lettuce, or boston lettuce)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl whisk together the hoisin, lime juice, chili sauce, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and ground ginger. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat until shimmering.
  3. Add the garlic and onion, saute until soft, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the ground pork, breaking it up with your spatula as it cooks, 8-10 minutes.
  5. Once the pork is fully cooked, drain any fat from the skillet, then return to the stove over medium-low heat.
  6. Add the hoisin-lime sauce you've mixed to the ground pork, toss to fully coat. Cover and simmer for about five minutes.
  7. Meanwhile make the salsa. In a medium bowl, add the mango, cucumber, red onion, jalapeno, salt, and pepper. Toss everything together with the lime juice and set aside.
  8. Uncover your pork, if the sauce is still thin and not really 'sticking to your pork', spoon about 2-3 TB of the sauce into a small bowl, and add in 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch, mix together. Pour back into the skillet, and mix together. Keep it over heat and cook for a remaining five minutes. Your sauce will thicken up and stick better to the ground pork. Remove from heat.
  9. To assemble, spoon your pork mixture into your lettuce cups, top with the salsa and Enjoy!
