Asian Pork Lettuce Wraps

This is good, unique, and fast.  It's a good, I don't know what to make on a week night dish, when you have some leftover rice in the fridge.  Make sure you have plenty of napkins as this dish is messy to eat.

2 cups
cooked rice (warm)
1 lb
ground pork
1 bunch
green onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
4 cloves
garlic, minced
2
carrots, peeled and shredded
2 tbl
soy sauce
3 tbl
hoisin sauce
1 tsp
sesame oil
tsp
chili paste (sambal oelek)
10 to 12
lettuce leaves

Brown the pork over medium high heat in a wok or non-stick frying pan and drain the fat.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add the soy sauce and hoisin sauce and cook for one minute.  Turn off the heat and add the Green onions and carrots and mix everything together.  Add the sesame oil and chili paste and mix well. Take a lettuce leaf, put a spoonful or two of rice in it and top with a spoonful of the meat mixture.  Eat it with your hands.
