Pork Belly Ssam Lettuce Wrap

Pork Belly Ssam Lettuce Wrap

Gochujang flavors are a perfect match! Pork belly marinade in gochujang is a classic combination that takes on smoky flavors like a grilled meat with the gochujang marinade. It can also work as taco filling or lettuce wraps. Use chicken or tofu and have fun!

Mix pork belly with Gochujang sauce(s) in a bowl until well combined using your hands to ensure the marinade is absorbed into the meat.  Let it stand about 15 minutes for flavors to combine or marinade for 4 hours if time allows.

In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the marinated pork on the hot pan so it sizzles. You want a bit a of charred smoky flavors of the thinly sliced pork belly. After about 8-10 minutes, add onion, carrots (if using) and continue to cook for another 5-6 minutes until both onions are caramelized and carrots are cooked through. Add chopped green onions to finish.

Serve alongside lettuce leaves to make wraps with additional sauces on the side.
