Author's Notes

Store the ground pork mixture in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge for up to 4 days. Store leftover lettuce leaves in a Ziploc bag lined with a damp paper towel (to be kept in the fridge as well).

The cornstarch helps to keep the ground pork super tender and prevents it from drying out or overcooking.
