Marinate the pork with cornflour, vegetable oil, Shaoxing wine, soy sauce and sugar.
Place the rice into a large pan and add enough water to make up at least 4 times of the volume of rice.
Cover and cook for about 30 minutes or until the rice is soft.
Add the pork and cook over high heat for 3 minutes. Add the egg and cook for a few minutes.
Turn off the heat. Add the lettuce and spring onions. Season with the salt and serve.
Preserved duck eggs are also known as thousand year old eggs. The eggs and shaoxing wine can be purchased in some Chinese/Oriental speciality shops.
