– One pound of ground beef (or pig or fowl)
– 1 medium onion, chopped
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 bag (14 oz) coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
– 1/4 cup soy sauce (for a soy-free version, use coconut aminos)
– 1 tablespoon sriracha (optional for heat)
– 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
– 1 tablespoon sesame oil
– One tablespoon of freshly grated ginger, or one teaspoon of ground ginger
– Salt and pepper to taste

1. Cook the Meat:
– Brown and thoroughly fry the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. If required, drain any surplus fat.

2. Add Aromatics:
– Fill the skillet with the minced garlic and diced onion. Cook until the onion is translucent and fragrant, about 3-5 minutes.

3. Incorporate Coleslaw Mix:
– Add the coleslaw mix to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender but still slightly crisp, about 5-7 minutes.

4. Season:
– Stir in the soy sauce (or coconut aminos), sriracha (if using), rice vinegar, sesame oil, and ground ginger. Mix well to combine all the flavors. Cook for a further two to three minutes, or until well heated.

5. Final Touches:
– Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the chopped green onions after adding them.

6. Serve:
– If preferred, top hot dish with sesame seeds for garnish.

– Feel free to add other low-carb vegetables like bell peppers or mushrooms.
– For a vegetarian version, replace the ground meat with crumbled tofu or tempeh.
– Adjust the amount of sriracha to suit your heat preference.
