Korean Turkey Lettuce Wraps
After tomorrow you’ll have plenty of leftover turkey, am I right? After one or two plates of reheated food, you might want to do something a little different with those leftovers. How about turning that turkey into Korean Turkey Lettuce Wraps?
This recipe is simple, fresh, and gives your leftover Thanksgiving turkey a completely different flavor with the use of San-J Korean BBQ Sauce.
