Bulgogi Wraps

Is this a pile of meat and green onions on a bed of lettuce?  Yes it is, and despite the bland look it is definitely worth making again.  Eating on the SCD diet is restricting in the sense that you have to do more prep work to get a satisfying flavor, but it definitely makes me appreciate every bite.  I have been instructed that the next time we make this we need to double the meat, but with a side dish/snack this is a decent sized meal for 2.


  • 1 lb rib-eye steak
  • 1/4 cup SCD Asian soy sauce (recipe follows)
  • 1/3 cup sesame seed oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 8 spring onions- chopped
  • Pepper and salt to taste
  • Lettuce leaves for serving
Cut the steak into thin slices, combine all of the remaining ingredients except for the lettuce into a bowl, add the meat to the marinade and let it marinate for 1 hour.  Add the meat to a wok and cook over medium-high heat (with sesame oil I find it better to add the meat and wok to the stovetop before I turn on the heat, otherwise you get a bunch of smoke).  Cook until the meat has cooked through and serve in lettuce wraps.
SCD Sauce
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp minced ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
Combine all the ingredients on a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until it has been reduced by half- about 20 minutes
