Korean Garlic and Chile Turkey Wraps


This was inspired by a recipe in Food & Wine. This dish does require some spices you may not have on hand,so get yourself to the Asian market. I used ground turkey because that is what I had on hand, it would work great on chicken or pork too – if you use these, marinate the meat overnight.

1/4 c gochujang
3 TBSP sugar
3 TBSP minced garlic
1 TBSP minced ginger
1 TBSP sake
1 TBSP miran
2 TBSP toasted sesame oil
2 TBSP gochugaru
1 lb ground turkey
Scallions thinly sliced
Lettuce leaves
Rice, cooked
Jalapeños, sliced
Carrots, grated

In a large bowl combine all the spices listed above the ground turkey. Add the turkey and combine, let marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Heat a little oil and skillet and cook turkey until cooked through, about 7 minutes.

Serve with lettuce, onions, rice, carrots and jalapeño.

Serves 4.
