Paleo and Whole30 Lettuce Cups

March 04, 2020

The quick, five-ingredient (seasoning and cilantro aside) Whole30 and paleo lettuce cups recipe is the perfect weeknight dinner recipe when you're short one time, bothered from your commute, and starving. Simply chop a bell pepper, brown ground pork, stir together a few other ingredients, and dinner's done. Primal Kitchen Hawaiian-Style BBQ Sauce accents the unctuous ground pork and sweetness of the red bell pepper and pineapple with smoky, savory, Island-kissed flavor. Scoop straight from the skillet, or pile atop of lettuce leaves, and devour.
