      Before Cooking

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Separate leaves of lettuce for cups. Slight browning on the outer leaves is normal and edible, but you may trim outer leaves if desired. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Stem cilantro. Drain and coarsely chop water chestnuts.

    Brown the Ground Pork

    Place a medium non-stick pan with 2 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add ground pork to hot pan and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no pink remains, 8-10 minutes. Drain meat in wire-mesh strainer, using bowl to collect excess fat. Return cooked meat to pan.

    Create the Filling

    Return pan with cooked pork to medium-high heat. Combine hoisin sauce, Sriracha (to taste), water chestnuts, white portions of green onions (reserve remaining for sauce), and ginger in hot pan with pork. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
