This lettuce is fabulous! I find it in my supermarket in a plastic container. It still has the roots on it. It stays fresh for a long time. The leaves form perfect little cups.
Source: I got the idea off of the Food Network. They used chicken salad. I have a Lap-band and have a hard time eating taco shells. It worked perfectly!
Rinse whole lettuce leaves and carefully pat dry. Set aside.
In a medium skillet over high heat, brown the pork in vegetable oil, stirring often and reducing the heat to medium, if necessary. Drain, and set aside to cool.
Cook the onion in the same pan, stirring frequently. Add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger and vinegar to the onions, and stir. Stir in chopped water chestnuts, green onions, and sesame oil, and continue cooking until the onions just begin to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the cooked pork and stir for about a minute.
Spoon equal portions onto each lettuce leaf, wrap the lettuce around the pork burrito style and serve ;-)

A great way to use left over rotisserie into a new meal. These lettuce cups will make a nice snack or a light lunch or dinner. Very healthy and yummy!
This sounds like a complicated recipe but it's really easy and it's just a matter of already having the ingredients ready and well worth the effort. The chicken refrigerates well if there are leftovers.
A nice way to present a salad is by using lettuce cups.
