Korean Gochujang Lettuce Wraps

Guys, have you tried cooking with gochujang yet?

If not, it’s time! ♡

This bold, spicy, savory, slightly-sweet, and irresistibly-good Korean chile paste has become one of my favorite ingredients to cook with this past year.  We use it regularly in our kitchen to whip up quick Korean stir-frys, liven up soups and salad dressings and marinades, and make the sauce for Barclay’s favorite spicy Korean noodles (<– recipe coming soon).  Most often, though, I love using it to make a super-simple gochujang sauce for lettuce wraps!

This 4-ingredient gochujang sauce only takes a minute or two to whip up with gochujang paste, soy sauce, maple syrup and sesame oil.  And when tossed with a few crunchy veggies and your choice of protein (beef, chicken, pork, shrimp or tofu would all work here!), you can have a batch of the tastiest Korean lettuce wraps ready to go in less than 30 minutes.  It’s the perfect light meal or appetizer for springtime.  It’s a great recipe for using up leftover veggies or protein in the fridge.  And I’ll just tell you now — once you whip up a batch of this simple sesame gochujang sauce, you’re going to want to put it on everything.

So add a bottle of gochujang to your grocery list, and let’s make some lettuce wraps!
