Directions

  1. Make the ginger sauce by whisking together the soy sauce, vinegar, water, sesame oil, scallion, and 1 tablespoon of the ginger. Set aside. 
  2. Heat broiler to high. Brush both sides of the pork chops with the olive oil, then sprinkle with the salt and the remaining ginger. Broil 2 minutes on each side. Cool and slice thinly.
  3. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a platter and fill each with some cilantro, carrots, cucumbers, and sliced pork. To eat, drizzle with the ginger sauce and roll the lettuce leaves to close. Serve with plenty of napkins.
  4. TO MAKE AHEAD: Make and refrigerate the dipping sauce up to 3 days beforehand. Prepare the remaining ingredients and wrap separately in resealable plastic bags a day in advance.

Quick Tip

Food thermometer
Cooking pork to an internal temperature of 150° F (before resting) yields a perfectly cooked and juicy finished product (a slight trace of pink is fine). This is a high enough temperature to kill the bacteria trichinosis, which only affects 1 percent of hogs in the United States.

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
