Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps

I have made Korean beef before but never as a wrap. I think I loved it even more in a wrap! A lettuce wrap that is!

One thing I love about Korean beef is it is FULL of flavor. This version is easy to make and it is made with ground beef. The whole dish is ready in about 15 minutes and is also gluten-free if you use tamari instead of soy sauce. Quick, easy, flavorful!
