Asian Lettuce Wraps

1 lb ground pork

1 red bell pepper, cored and finely diced

1/2 yellow onion, finely diced

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 cup hoisin sauce

2 Tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon minced ginger

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

4 oz sliced water chestnuts, chopped

3 green onions, sliced

1 head iceberg lettuce

Cook the pork in a saute pan, until no longer pink. Drain off fat. Put the cooked pork into the slow cooker. Stir in the bell pepper, onion, garlic, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. Do not be tempted to cook it on high, there is no need. Cooking it on high will just dry it out.

After 2 hours, stir in the water chestnuts and green onions. Let the mixture cook for another 5-10 minutes. 

Serve over lettuce leaves.
