So this is another recipe from Eating For Life! Such a great cookbook. Recipes are pretty simple, pretty cheap, but very tasty, light, and healthy! This recipe called for ground beef, but you all know me by now. I avoid red meat for the most part and go for the whites! I chose ground chicken because it was cheaper than ground turkey, but your options are endless! Have fun with this! I doubled the recipe (intending to have leftovers)-but if you half this, you would be JUST FINE!
1 pound ground meat
2 T Sesame Oil
2 cups Napa Cabbage, shredd
2 cups Broccoli Slaw
4-6 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup uncooked brown rice
One bundle of green onions
2 T Lite Soy Sauce
Ground Red Pepper to taste
First, cook your rice according to box directions. My brown rice takes about 45 minutes, so don't start the next step right away!
Next, when rice is coming to a finish in cooking time, in a wok or large skillet, brown your meat until no longer pink. I used a WOK, of course :) Once finished, drain of any excess liquid and set aside.
Heat Sesame Oil in the same skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and green onions. Stir fry constantly for about 2 minutes and then throw in the cabbage and the slaw. Cook again, for about 2 minutes.
Drain rice. Add to veggie mix. Add soy sauce to entire combination. Continue to cook 2-5 minutes.
Lastly, add your ground meat to the rice and veggies and cook until flavors and components are well combined. Add red pepper to taste and serve!
We really liked this dish, and I know you will too!
