1    3 pound   boneless beef chuck pot roast
1 1/2   cups   diced jicama or chopped celery
1/2   cup   chopped green onions
1/4   cup   rice vinegar
1/4   cup   reduced-sodium soy sauce
2    tablespoons   hoisin sauce
1    tablespoon   finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2   teaspoon   salt
1/2   teaspoon   chili oil
1/4   teaspoon   ground black pepper
2    tablespoons   cornstarch
2    tablespoons   cold water
24      Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves
Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Place meat in the cooker. In a medium bowl, combine jicama, green onion, vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, salt, chili oil and pepper. Pour over meat in cooker.
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
Remove meat from slow cooker. Using two forks, shred meat and transfer to a bowl. Cover to keep warm.
For sauce: Skim fat off cooking liquid; discard. Transfer cooking liquid (and any vegetables) to a small saucepan. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and the water; add to cooking liquid. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until slightly thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 2 minutes more. Add sauce to shredded meat; toss to coat.
To serve, spoon about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture onto each lettuce leaf. Fold lettuce around filling; secure with a toothpick, if you like.
