Ingredients

Honey
1 1/2 cups honey
1/2 cup warm water
Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup warm water
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 3/4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
6 tablespoons fish sauce
4 tablespoons grated carrot
Lettuce Wraps
1 (1-pound) pork shoulder (very cold to slice)
Salt, to taste
Vegetable oil
12 leaves Bibb lettuce
1 cup sliced radishes
2 tablespoons fresh dill
24 fresh mint leaves
24 thin slices fresh jalapeño

Preparation

Prepare the Honey: In a mixing bowl, combine the TABASCO® Original Red Sauce, TABASCO® Green Sauce and honey. Add warm water and stir to combine. Set aside.

Prepare the Dipping Sauce: In a bowl, dissolve sugar in the warm water. Add TABASCO® Original Red Sauce, garlic, lime juice, fish sauce and grated carrot. Stir to combine. Set aside.

Prepare the Lettuce Wraps: Slice the pork shoulder into 1/2-inch slices. Place the sliced pork in a resealable bag or container and add 1/2 of the Honey. Marinate in refrigerator for 8-12 hours.

Heat grill to high heat. Remove pork from marinade and season with salt. Brush the pork with a little vegetable oil and grill until fully cooked and moderately charred (about 1 1/2 minutes on each side). Remove from grill and cool slightly. Chop the pork.

To serve, place a large pinch of pork in each bibb lettuce cup. Drizzle with Honey and top with radishes, fresh herbs and jalapeño. Serve with the dipping sauce on the side.
