We've all had our fair share of lettuce wraps but have you ever tried a cabbage wrap? The sturdy, crunchy cabbage leaves hold up much better than lettuce and give you more crunch in each bite! We seasoned our ground pork mixture with the warming, spicy notes of our Chinese Five Spice featuring cinnamon, clove, fennel, star anise and peppercorn. This dish comes together quickly and will make you feel like a real kitchen wiz! Don't have ground pork? You can sub ground chicken or turkey!
