Korean turkey lettuce wraps

Most everytime I go to the grocery store, I try a new and exciting condiment, sauce, marinade of sorts.

This past weekend, I picked up a jar of Korean BBQ sauce


Bibigo Original. Almost tried the Hot and Spicy.. maybe next trip 😉

I marinated a couple of sirloin steaks in it a couple of nights ago, and they came out damn good. It’s a sweet/salty/nutty mix of flavors. The main flavors that I can make out are soy and sesame. YUM!

I had also picked up a pound of ground turkey breast, and a small head of bibb lettuce with every intention of making lettuce wraps.  I’ve eaten them from a couple of places, so I knew what I wanted and what I didn’t. And so I came up with this.

They were REALLY good. Not greasy, not to onion-y, perfect amount of sauce and flavor. Try it out for yourself. It really couldn’t be easier 🙂


1 lb ground turkey breast

1 sm onion (small dice)

1 stalk celery (small dice)

1 carrot (small dice)

2 cloves garlic (minced)

4 button mushrooms (small dice)

2Tbsp Korean BBQ sauce

1Tbsp Sriracha

1 small head Bibb lettuce

In medium sauce pan, cook turkey until no longer pink. Add onion, celery and carrot, and cook until slightly softened. Add garlic, just until fragrant, then add mushrooms.

Cook for a couple minutes. Add Korean BBQ sauce and Sriracha, stir until all incorporated

Serve in lettuce cups and enjoy 🙂
