I found this recipe on the Tyson website. I didn't have to change much to make it low carb. I used Splenda instead of honey and romaine lettuce instead of flour tortillas for the wraps. I liked this a lot even though I'm not a huge fan of ginger. The flavor grew on me the more I ate it. I really like the combination of the warm pork mixture and the cool, crisp lettuce. Since I only used 1/4 of the bag of coleslaw mix in this recipe, I came up with a way to use up the rest of the bag by making Spicy Asian Cabbage.
