Total Time



  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat until shimmering. Stir in ginger and cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute or until fragrant. Crumble in the pork (or chicken or turkey) and stir-fry until the meat or poultry is just beginning to lose its pink color, about 2 minutes. Add carrot, broccoli, red bell pepper, water chestnuts and half the scallions (just divide by eye) and stir fry for 1 minute more to combine, then add oyster sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil and continue to stir fry for several more minutes until meat is cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, place lettuce leaves on plates, ready to be used as wraps for the finished stir-fry. Once meat or poultry is cooked through and vegetables are slightly softened, divide among lettuce leaves, sprinkle with peanuts and garnish with remaining scallions and cilantro. Serve immediately. Wrap stir-fry up in the lettuce leaves and eat with your fingers - have plenty of napkins handy!


  • This recipe also works with ground chicken or turkey.
  • If you want to make this more substantial offer a side dish of rice, or even incorporate cooked rice into the stir-fry.
