Wendell's Kochujang Lettuce Wrap "Sausage"

Wendell found this recipe in this week's Crave section of the Star-Advertiser. It can be found here. Instead of making patties, he just stir fried the whole thing so that it could be eaten in a lettuce wrap. Good idea yah! 

The flavor was very potent, so you don't need to add any additional sauce, although Landon did along with some eggs.

It had plenty flavor, Izsmom!

Aunty, I think it worked better in a wrap than it would've as patties.

It's great you have a chef in the family. I got Korea on my bucket list, love the food. By the way, I went to the watch shop in Chinatown that you recommended, very reasonable charge for the repair, thanks.
