Dissolve the cornstarch and white pepper in the braising liquid.
Get a saute pan very hot over high heat then add the oil. Quickly add the lettuce to the pan. The leaves should keep the oil from spattering too much, but be careful none-the-less.
Use the pan to toss the lettuce until it is bright green (about a minute). Add the liquid, tossing to coat. As soon as the sauce thickens (shouldn’t take more than a couple tosses) it’s done and should be served immediately (if it sits, it will get watery and soggy).
