Spicy Pork Lettuce Cups

My dinner on Saturday was this OUTSTANDING dish.

• 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger (or ginger powder)
• 6 garlic cloves, minced
• 12 ounces lean ground pork  (I found 96% lean Ground Pork)
• 1 1/2 cups diced seeded cucumber (optional)
• 1 cup diced red bell pepper
• 1/3 cup diced carrot  (optional)
• 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
• 1/4 cup salted, dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
• 1/2 serrano chile, thinly sliced
• 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
• 1 tablespoon fish sauce
• 1 teaspoon Stevia
• 16 Boston lettuce leaves (or I used Romaine)

1. Combine first 3 ingredients
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.   Add pork mixture to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until pork is browned, stirring to crumble.  Place pork mixture in a large bowl.   Add cucumber (if desired) and next 5 ingredients (through serrano), and stir to combine.
3. Combine lime juice, fish sauce, and Stevia in a small bowl, stir.  Add juice mixture to pork mixture; toss.  Place pork mixture in each lettuce leaf.
