A note about serious food allergies

Bo ssam (bo-sahm) literally means "packaged" in Korean, and this one-of-a-kind lettuce wrap featuring perfectly tender beef short ribs will have you wrapped up in yum. The boneless short ribs are cooked low and slow until they're so tender, all you need to shred them is a fork. Seasoned with a sweet-spicy rub and drizzled with a Korean chili pepper sauce, this dish is good enough to win a contest, but you might think twice about sharing it with others.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Rub and Roast Short Ribs

    Remove short ribs from packaging and discard any liquid or fat. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, half the gochujang, 1 Tbsp. water, and 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a small bowl. Rub meat with mixture using your hands. Place on prepared baking sheet and roast 25-30 minutes, or until meat reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove from oven and, with two forks, shred meat. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Make the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 2 cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and mince whites of green onions. Slice remaining green parts of green onions lengthwise into thin strips, then cut strips into 2" pieces. Separate leaves of lettuce for cups. Cut thin rounds from pointed half of Fresno chile. Discard seeds to reduce spice level. Core and mince other half of Fresno chile. Mince garlic.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Combine remaining gochujang, ginger, garlic, minced green onion, minced Fresno (Fresno chile peppers can be hot, so add to your liking!), seasoned rice vinegar, and 2 Tbsp. water in a small serving bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. 5

    Plate the Dish

    Bo ssam is best enjoyed buffet- or family-style. Place short ribs on a platter alongside lettuce cups. Serve rice, dipping sauce, green onion strips, and Fresno rounds on the side. Make lettuce wraps by adding a bit of rice, green onion, short ribs, and sauce to a lettuce leaf.
