Updated: Mar 10, 2023

Don't underestimate these sides! These pork wraps are an excellent option if you're looking to make some quick food but have it taste as if it wasn't. You'll want to make a full meal out of this so be sure to pair it up with rice or something else!


  • 2 tbsp. gochujang

  • 1 tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice

  • 1/2 tbsp. packed brown sugar

  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

  • Kosher salt and pepper

  • 1 1-pound pork tenderloin, trimmed

  • Gem or baby romaine lettuce leaves

  • Cooked rice; sliced radishes, cucumber, scallions and chiles; and fresh cilantro and mint leaves, for serving



Heat oven to 400°F. In small bowl, combine gochujang, soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, and sesame oil.

Heat oil in large oven-safe skillet on medium-high. Season pork with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes.

Set aside half of gochujang mixture. Brush pork with remaining gochujang mixture and roast until internal temp reaches 145°F, 12 to 15 minutes.

Transfer pork to cutting board. Using clean pastry brush, brush with remaining gochujang mixture and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with lettuce, rice, radishes, cucumber, scallions, chiles, cilantro, and mint.
