If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Combine in a small bowl cornstarch and water. Stir cornstarch mixture into liquid around the meat. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or more until thickened.
Remove meat from cooker. With two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Return meat to cooker. Spoon meat mixture onto lettuce leaves. Fold bottom edge of each lettuce leaf up and over filling. Fold in opposite sides; roll up from bottom.
