Easy and fun lettuce wraps featuring grilled ground beef patties and kimchi.



For the beef patties:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 stems green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Avocado oil

For the lettuce wraps:

  • 8 curly green lettuce leaves or iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cup kimchi, chopped (I used homemade kimchi.)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Sesame seeds for garnishing


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the beef patties ingredients except for the avocado oil. Form into 8 long patties with both of your hands. Brush a little oil on the patties.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat and cook the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes, covering loosely with foil.
  3. To serve, place the patties on lettuce leaves and top with kimchi and tomatoes. Garnish with sesame seeds. Wrap it up and enjoy!
