LETTUCE WRAP SAUCE (SSAMJANG)
This strong, pungent sauce is used in my Roasted Pork Belly Lettuce Wrap. It can also be used as a dip for crudités and is especially good with raw garlic slices and small Chinese cabbage leaves. There are many variations on ssamjang sauces – another version is my Spicy Lettuce Wrap Sauce.
