Servings 4 servings
- ¾ lb ground pork or ground beef
- ¼ cup sliced almonds
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp avocado oil or olive oil
- 1 ½ tbsp ginger
- 2 cloves garlic
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- ¾ tsp Chinese 5 spice
- 400 g bagged coleslaw or 6 cups shredded savoy cabbage
- 2 stalks green onion
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- ¼ cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
Heat a skillet on medium heat. If it is not a non stick pan, add 1/2 tsp butter or avocado/olive oil. Once hot, add the sliced almonds and fry just until slightly golden and aromatic, about 2-3 minutes. Add the sesame seeds and fry until golden, about 1-2 minutes, then pour out the sesame seeds and almonds into a bowl and set aside.
Return the skillet to the heat and add 1 tsp avocado/olive oil. Peel the garlic and ginger and then either mince them both or grate them with the small side of a cheese grater. Once the oil is hot, add the ginger, garlic and black pepper. Stir them into the oil and fry until fragrant, 1-2 minutes, then add the ground pork/beef. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the meat is no longer pink.
Stir in the Chinese 5 spice until fully incorporated and then stir in the bagged coleslaw. Fry until the cabbage is soft, about 4-5 minutes, and chop the green onion into thin slices. Once the cabbage is soft, stir in the green onions, sesame oil, soy sauce, sesame seeds and sliced almonds. Serve hot!
- Be careful when frying the sesame seeds - they will burn very quickly, so keep a close eye on them!
- I prefer my cabbage cooked until just soft to retain some of the texture.
- For strict keto, the soy sauce can be swapped with coconut aminos.
