Ohhh wow that sounds incredibly good. Is it as simple as it sounds? What do you put in it?

yep, it is really as easy as it sounds!

Asian Style Beef & Cabbage
1 lb ground beef
2 T sesame oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, sliced and I love to add a whole onion halved and sliced thin
1 bag cole slaw mix or shredded cabbage and carrots
1 T soy sauce
Crushed red pepper flakes or a teaspoon of that hot "chili garlic sauce" (the one with the rooster on it in the Asian aisle)
grated ginger (optional)

In a large skillet or wok, brown the ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove the beef from the skillet, drain and set aside.

Heat sesame oil in the skillet over med-high heat. Add garlic and green onions; stir-fry for 2 min. Add slaw mix; stir-fry for a few minutes till it's soft. Add soy sauce, stir-fry for 2 min.

Return the cooked ground beef to skillet with vegetable mixture, and season with red pepper flakes, or add your chili garlic sauce and ginger. Stir until ingredients are well combined and heated through.

This is a versatile recipe, and since I happened to have sesame oil, ginger, chili sauce, etc. in the cupboard I made it Asian. If you want to make it Mexican you can use a different oil, add some cumin & chili powder, get rid of the soy sauce, and use some Chalula and cilantro.


**I love to toss in a couple big spoons of Black Bean Garlic Paste instead of the chili garlic sauce. Soooo yummy, makes a ton and really good over that basmati rice. This is our idea of 'fast food' cause it is done just as the rice is finished**
