Sweet + Tangy Pork Lettuce Wraps

I love an Asian inspired dish once in a while and lettuce wraps have always been a favorite. The autoimmune protocol can make it a bit tricky to create an amazing sauce but I think you guys are really going to love this one. It's sweet and tangy and all around perfect! Don't let the number of ingredients scare you. I promise this is an easy, fast recipe that can be thrown together on a busy weeknight. I used pork but you can easily substitute chicken or turkey or even veggies if you want to make it meatless.
