Korean BBQ Lettuce Wraps

Korean BBQ Beef is one of my favorite easy things to whip up, especially if you’re looking for something yummy to meal prep. Using it in a lettuce wrap like this makes it even more delicious & really brings a lot of fresh flavors to the beef! They’re super easy to make & I know you’ll fall in love with them just as much as I have.

This post is sponsored by Alpha Foods! If you haven’t heard of them, now you have! They make some of the MOST AMAZING frozen vegan products on the market, ranging from frozen burritos, tamales, pot pies, etc.- to chicken nuggets, and other vegan meats. And the quality is top notch. Even their frozen burritos when microwaved hold together, don’e explode, and the tortilla never gets that weird rubbery texture- plus they’re actually LOADED with filling.

You can find their products here https://alphaplantbased.com/, and I just want to give a huge thanks to Alpha for collaborating with me on this post and many more to come! I’m so excited to show y’all how easy it is to upgrade these frozen items into full blown meals.

Here’s what you’ll need to make these delicious little green wrapped beauties-

  • 1 bag Alpha Foods Beefy Crumbles
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2-4 tbsp sriracha (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • ½ cup roughly chopped scallions
  • Large green leaf lettuce leaves (1 whole head, rinsed)
  • Sliced fresno chiles
  • Grated raw carrot
  • Grated cucumber
  • Sesame seeds
  • Avocado oil as needed

You can add whatever toppings you’d like, but the combination of fresh cucumber, carrot, and spicy red chile make for a really refreshing bite against the bold flavor of the beef!

And here’s how you make them! Trust me they’re so easy you’ll have them together in no time.

  1. In a pan over medium heat, add some avocado oil and your Alpha Foods Beef.  Once it starts to brown, add in your soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar, sriracha, minced ginger, and minced garlic.  Stir to combine, raise the heat to high & cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens.
  2. Roughly chop your scallions, throw those in, reduce the heat to low & cover the pan for 5 minutes to steam them gently. You want them to still have some crunch.
  3. Wash and prep all your veggies.  Place 2 lettuce leaves together, then fill with your beef mixture, and top with mixed cucumber & carrot, red chiles, and sesame seeds.

Super easy, super delicious, and the perfect way to dress up a big head of lettuce!
