korean beef lettuce wrapsToday we’re sharing this yummy recipe as an ode to our dear friend Rachel in South Korea! While it may not be totally authentic, this is a lean method of making delicious Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps. Mmmm! You can also try experimenting with ingredients like veggies, seeds, and sauces for new flavors and textures!

Ingredients:

3 tbsp. orange marmalade
2 tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp. hoisin sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. freshly grated ginger
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 carrots, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
8 scallions, sliced
Boston lettuce leaves
Toasted sesame seeds

Directions:

Whisk the marmalade, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, and ginger together in a small bowl. Set aside.

Cook the beef, carrots, pepper, and scallions over medium heat, stirring often, until the beef is browned. Drain.

Add the sauce mixture and cook for an additional 5 minutes until ingredients are blended and beef has finished cooking.

Spoon the mixture into the lettuce leaves and sprinkle sesame seeds over top of the beef. Serve immediately.
