  1. Combine stem lettuce and pinch of salt in another bowl.
  2. Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl; stir into a smooth paste.

  4. Whisk remaining cornstarch paste, chicken stock, soy sauce, black vinegar, and sugar in another bowl to make sauce.

Stir in lettuce; saute until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in sauce and toss until thickened, about 3 minutes.
