These Bulgogi Wraps are as healthy as you can get as there is a very low carb content, low salt content, and low fat content. While it’s good to choose the healthy eating option, it’s also good when the food tastes good. And in this recipe, you have the best of both worlds. Try it and see!
16 large romaine or butter lettuce leaves
2 tbsp coconut oil
227g (8oz) button mushrooms, quartered
1 cucumber, diced
3 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic, minced
454g/ 1 pound ground pork

2 tbsp sliced scallions, for garnish
Crushed red pepper, for garnish
- Place the cleaned lettuce leaves on a platter.
- In a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the mushrooms, cucumber, scallions, ginger, and garlic when the oil is hot. Cook for 4 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft. Combine the ground pork, sesame oil, vinegar, tamari, and salt in a mixing bowl. Cook, breaking up the pork with a spatula, for about 5 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through.
- Remove from the heat and wrap in romaine leaves to serve. Add the cabbage, scallions, and crushed red pepper to the top. Refrigerate the filling and lettuce separately in airtight containers for up to 4 days. Place the filling in a lightly greased skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
