Need a game changing lunch? These Korean Beef Collard Green Wraps are it!
Okay, SERIOUSLY. Not only are these Korean Beef Collard Green Wraps beautiful, they are so flavorful!! Using Collard Greens; I wrapped up rice, marinated thinly sliced short ribs, veggies, herbs, and dipped them in some magical sauce and it was honestly one of my favorite lunches this far.
It’s no secret that I LOVE food in general, but something you may not know about me is that I prefer a lighter lunch. There is nothing worse than having a food coma with another 1/2 of a days work to get done. That’s why these Korean Beef Collard Green Wraps are amazing. You will still feel satisfied from the protein, but you’re not going to be needing any sort of nap on account of being full enough to pop.
Wrapping these babies up is a breeze!
Sometimes wrapping up a meal can seem a little intimidating. Don’t you fret, it is literally so easy to wrap up Korean Beef Collard Green Wraps. First things first, you want to make sure you are working with good product. When you go to the grocery store, be very picky with the collard greens you choose. Look for leaves that are big and a circle- then make sure that they are in good shape. If it has a ton of holes find some better leaves. Now before you stuff your wraps, trim off the stem at the base of the leaf. One of the most important steps is to shave the thick part of the stem that is attached to the leaf. Lastly, stuff your wrap with all your goodies and roll like a burrito making sure to tuck in the side as you go! Watch my video if any of this is confusing.
