Mushroom “Bul Go Gi” Lettuce Wraps
From Chef Ani Phyo
Makes 4 servings
This is a traditional style of sam, a Korean lettuce wrap recipe. The lettuce and Gochujang sauce are what tie this dish together. The lettuce wraps are filled with sliced garlic and pepper for savory flavors that pair with the sweet and salty marinade of the Mushroom “Bul Go Gi”. Cucumber and carrot add color and texture. 
1 batch Gochujang, see recipe below
1 clove thinly sliced garlic
1 Korean pepper, or jalapeño, sliced
1 cup julienned cucumber
1 cup julienned carrot
Bul Go Gi
1 batch Mushroom “Bul Go Gi”, see recipe below
8 red lettuce leaves, or more
To serve, place fillings and Mushroom “Bul Go Gi” into individual bowls. Place lettuce leaves in a stack on a plate.
Allow everyone to make individual wraps by placing a lettuce in their hand and stuffing with Gochujang, fillings, and Mushroom “Bul Go Gi”. Wrap and eat immediately.
Will keep for several days in fridge when all ingredients are stored separately.
