Heat oil in wok or frypan. Cook pork quickly until separate and cooked through, then set aside leaving oil in pan. Place onions, garlic, ginger, celery, capsicum, mushrooms and rice into the hot pan and cook gently, stirring until softened. Return the pork to the pan and mix well. Combine cornflour, sauces and vinegar in a small bowl, add to the pork mixture with the bean shoots and stir through until bean shoots are wilted and mixture has thickened slightly. Place two crisp lettuce leaves on each serving plate and spoon the filling onto each leaf. Serve at once.
Place leaves on a plate and pork mixture in a bowl and allow diners to fill each leaf with mixture, roll into a parcel and eat with their fingers.
