  • 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


Equipment Needed


  • 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!


Expert Tips

  1. Be careful when frying the sesame seeds - they will burn very quickly, so keep a close eye on them!
  2. I prefer my cabbage cooked until just soft to retain some of the texture.
  3. For strict keto, the soy sauce can be swapped with coconut aminos.
