    This dish is great for hot summer days. The crisp lettuce makes a nice wrapper, but doesn't leave you overstuffed like a starchy wrapper can

      I was sure I had rated this previously, but apparently not. It's a wonderful dish. I add mushrooms to the marinade and cook them with steak. I think tofu would work well too in terms of bulking out the meat.

      This was great we usually order this at one of our favorite restaraunts but wanted to try it at home. So simple and wonderful! Also we eat these with thinly sliced red onions and Kimchee (that's how it was served at the rest) and it is very flavorful with a little kick from the kimchee.
