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. Add water chestnuts and teriyaki sauce mixture; stir-fry for 1 minute or until piping hot and sauce is thickened. Spoon onto warm serving platter.

Have each person brush some of the hoisin sauce onto lettuce leaf. Spoon some of the pork mixture onto centre; sprinkle with carrot broccoli and peanuts. Fold lettuce over filling and roll up.
