Ingredients

For the ground beef

  • 1 lb Ground beef
  • 1 c Kimchi Thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves Garlic pressed
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • Salt to taste

Toppings & Lettuce

  • 1 Head butter lettuce Rinsed and dried
  • ½ c Carrots julienned
  • 1-2 tsp oil or butter for cooking the egg
  • 1 egg
  • 3 green onions Thick portion only, sliced thin
  • ½ c kimchi Thinly sliced

Instructions

Preparation

  • Rinse butter lettuce leaves and set aside.
  • Beat egg and preheat a skillet. Add 1-2 tsp of oil or butter. Cook egg in a thin layer. Roll up the egg and remove from heat.
  • Slice the egg in very thin slices to create shoestring sized pieces.

Meat cooking

  • In a frying pan, cook ground beef until 80% cooked.
  • Add garlic using a garlic press.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Add 1 cup of thinly sliced kimchi.
  • Drizzle 1 tsp of sesame oil over the meat mixture.
  • Continue to cook the beef until it is 100% cooked.
  • Serve with all of the prepared side items.

Notes

Optional ways to serve this would be with a sauce like gochujang (Korean sweet and spicy pepper sauce) or garlic aioli. These wraps are perfectly flavorful without a sauce.
