    Healthy Low Carb Korean Pork Lettuce Wraps, known as “ssäm” in Korea, are a very popular dish in Korean households. Typical ssäm are made by wrapping tasty slow cooked meat like pork in leafy vegetables like lettuce. I marinate the pork shoulder before cooking to infuse it with the flavors of miso, soy, sesame oil and hot sauce like gochujang pepper paste or Sriracha.

    This is a super healthy low carb meal which I serve with radishes, cucumbers and green onions. To assemble these wraps, simply take a leaf and spoon some of the shredded pork into it. Add a drizzle of gochujang pepper paste or Sriracha and wrap it up. Eat and repeat!
