I am mostly ignorant of Korean cuisine. I tend to order the same 4 or 5 dishes when I eat out at the local joint and the marinade for making bbq beef is the limit of my knowledge.  That, of course, won’t stop me from learning more.

This Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps are LOOSELY based on bulgogi, a classic dish of grilled, sliced beef that has been marinated in sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce, and sugar. Mine has all these ingredients and then taking the creative license like I frequently do, I added a few other items as well.  Oh man, did I ever pick the correct items to be creative with.Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps - Sweet and mildly spiced beef, cooked quickly and enjoyed in a sturdy leaf of lettuce, creating smiles all around the table ~ The Complete SavoristWhile incredibly humble looking, the saucy beef provides such intense flavor you will not be disappointed. I enjoyed them in the lettuce leaves, but my daughter opted for rice.  My guests were divided between using lettuce and rice and one even just added the rice to the lettuce, covering all her bases!

I will get around to making traditional bulgogi along with many other fabulous Korean dishes. But for now, the Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps will have to tide me over.

I’ve shared a Chinese chicken lettuce wrap, a taco lettuce wrap, and now this Korean beef.  What else do you like in a lettuce wrap? What else should I make in a lettuce wrap?

        April 28, 2016 at 6:19 am Am I to assume that it is a 1/4 cup of soy sauce AND a 1/4 cup of tamari or is it either/or? Thank you.
        • Michelle De La Cerda
          April 28, 2016 at 8:53 am Either/or. Tamari keeps the dish gluten free for those who need that, otherwise just use soy sauce.

    June 7, 2016 at 11:41 am I usually slice the beef, marinade with pre-made Korean BBQ sauce and grill them. My kids love to eat them with rice.

      June 7, 2016 at 12:28 pm Sliced beef is a great, and more traditional way to go. Ground beef was a cheaper and faster option. My daughter loves them too.

    August 25, 2016 at 12:54 pm I'd like to incorporate more vegetables, either in this or on the side, any ideas that would match?
    • Michelle De La Cerda
      August 26, 2016 at 2:36 pm For inside you can finely dice some mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, carrot, and/or MAYBE bok choy, but I'm not 100% sold on the idea of bok choy. As a side, quickly stir fry some veggies.
