Arrange lettuce on serving platter; add carrot, broccoli, and peanuts (if using) in separate mounds beside lettuce. Cover with damp cloth to prevent drying out. In small bowl, whisk together teriyaki sauce, orange juice, sugar, and cornstarch; set aside. Trim any fat from pork; cut into fine dice. Set aside.

In wok or large skillet, heat oil over high heat; stir-fry green onions, garlic and ginger for 1 minute. Add pork; stir-fry for 2 minutes or until golden. Add green pepper; stir-fry for 2 minutes.
