Dweji Bulgogi (Spicy Pork) Tacos!

Instead of carne asada tacos, and instead of rice and dweji bulgogi, I decided to mix it up and make dweji bulgogi tacos! The best of both worlds! I think I love tacos more for the cilantro and onions than for anything else.

Remember this?? *stomach growls*

All you need to do is get some veggies ready, and you’re ready to eat! I know what you’re thinking about the perilla leaves and mint. They don’t belong here. Oh, but they do! For a low-carb meal, use the perilla leaves instead of tortillas. But if you want it all (like I do), try this…

Yum yum!!! So many fragrant veggies and more importantly, so many flavors!

Taco without a perilla leaf.  Still good, but I love me some perilla leaves!
