Homechef – Thai pork lettuce wraps with water chestnuts, ginger and sesame dipping sauce.

I made this meal from Homechef for dinner last Monday. It was very tasty. Thai pork lettuce wraps with water chestnuts, ginger and sesame dipping sauce. Low carb, easy to make and super satisfying.

I would love to make this again on my own, I just have no idea what was in the dipping sauce as it came pre made…
