Excite Your Dinner with @VHsauces Giveaway

I am continually searching for new recipe ideas to excite my family about the meals we’re eating. It’s important to me that our meals are not only healthy and nutritious but flavourful to keep my kids coming back for more.  Some of our favourite meals are stir-fry’s and wraps because you can combine so many foods to bring out a maximum burst of flavours. VH Sauces add the perfect accent to any meal, from barbecuing in the summer months to marinated meats in the winter.



We chose the Korean Pork Lettuce Wraps to try out the very first night after our “Fun with Kids” VH excite your dinner blog tour package arrived, full of kids activities, VH sauces, adorable kids chopsticks and more.  The actual cooking and prep time for this recipe was very quick and easy with a total of 20 minutes; as a busy mom of 4, I appreciate meals that save me time but don’t lack in flavour or nutrition. The kids had a lot of fun building their wraps; they liked that they could pick and choose what to put on each of their lettuce wraps.  Specifically Miss Priss, being the pickiest eater, asked if we could have this again for supper.  You know when your children ask for a meal to be made again that it was a huge hit.

  4. Slice pork into ½-inch strips and serve alongside other garnishes.
