Korean BBQ Turkey Wraps

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.

This isn’t just good for using up leftover turkey, you can also use leftover chicken or start from fresh with a rotisserie chicken. Either way, it’s a nice change of pace from the heavier holiday food we’ll all be eating tomorrow!
