Korean food is delicious and I pretty much think the world needs to get on board. One of their trademark dishes is bulgogi, marinated beef served with lettuce, rice and spicy bean paste. Technically speaking, it’s part of the burrito family of food vehicles.
During a recent Saturday being an average white person and hanging out at a farmer’s market, I picked up some Merquez sausage. If you haven’t had breakfast at Cafe Mogador [101 St. Marks Pl., NYC], Merquez is a spicy lamb sausage from where Spain, Africa and the Middle East collide. This special Moroccan treat has been waiting patiently in the freezer, until last night.
Originally, I was going to sauté the sausage and serve with homemade tabbouleh salad. But, my box of bulgur wheat had been victimized by colony of insects. (Totally gross, but don’t judge me unless you want a karmic case of head lice…or crabs.) At a loss, I ransacked my options and settled on a Korean-Middle Eastern lovechild: Merquez Sausage Lettuce Wraps.
