The quintessential Chinese dipping sauce, hoisin sauce is all you need to transform everyday meatballs into sticky, glazed nuggets of goodness. If you find your lettuce cups too crowded to eat neatly, just tear off a few more lettuce leaves and fill them with fewer meatballs. If you don't have ground pork, any ground meat will do.
