Korean Beef Wraps in rice paper, also known as “ssam,” is a traditional Korean dish that is easy to make and delicious. Here’s a recipe for you:
1 lb thinly sliced beef (such as sirloin or ribeye)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp gochujang (Korean chili paste)
1 tsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp black pepper
Rice paper wrappers
Lettuce leaves, sliced cucumbers, sliced onions, sliced mushrooms, and kimchi for wrapping
In a large bowl, combine the garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, gochujang, rice vinegar, and black pepper.
Add the beef to the bowl and toss to coat evenly.
Marinate the beef in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Heat a skillet or grill over high heat.
Cook the beef for 2-3 minutes per side, or until cooked to your liking.
Remove the beef from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes.
Dip the rice paper wrappers in warm water for about 10-15 seconds, or until they become pliable.
Lay the wrapper on a plate, and place a lettuce leaf on top.
Add a slice of beef, cucumbers, onions, mushrooms and kimchi on top of the lettuce leaf.
Roll the wrapper tightly and enjoy!
Note: You can add any other vegetables or condiments that you like. Also, you can use ground beef or pork instead of sliced beef for a different variation.
