    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

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

    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.
