Happy Monday folks! Only one more Monday left in October, WOW! Time is flying bye. Next thing November is here, Thanksgiving, Christmas, then 2020! But before the Holidays are upon us, let’s enjoy these next few weeks of Fall before November is here and full Holiday mode is on!

These past few weeks on my blog I have been sharing tons of recipes, and today I’m continuing the streak and sharing yet another one of my favorite dishes. If you are a huge fan of Chinese food, like me, but are looking to make a healthier alternative so you can enjoy it more times during the week, then you’re going to love this recipe. It’s perfect for any time of year and is the perfect dish to incorporate into your family dinners or as a treat for yourself. 🙂 They are healthy, gluten-free, and are sure to make you smile.

Okay! Enough waiting! Let’s get into the recipe!

  2. Filling- place pork in a pan and fry until cooked through, then add olive oil, chopped white onion, chopped lettuce (optional), salt + pepper into pan with pork and saute until cooked. Onions should become caramelized.

  5. To warm, take a frying pan/ skillet (same one used for frying pork and veggies) and place 1/2 cup water with 1 tbsp canola oil into it and place your pirogues flat side down into it, cover with a tight lid and let cook on medium-high heat for 11 minutes or until the flat side becomes lightly browned and crispy.
