Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground turkey breast (can substitute with ground chicken, ground beef, or ground pork)
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil*
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic**
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ cup less sodium soy sauce
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag coleslaw mix

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce (optional, but recommended)

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground meat and cook, stirring, until no longer pink. Drain; return meat to skillet.
  • Add diced onion, sesame oil, and rice vinegar to the skillet. Cook, stirring, for a few more minutes (until onion is tender).
  • Add garlic, ginger, soy sauce, hoisin sauce (optional), coleslaw mix, and carrots to the skillet. Cook, stirring, for about 5-7 more minutes, or until cabbage is wilted.
  • Remove skillet from the heat. Stir in green onions and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Notes

Cooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half! The cooking instructions remain the same.
*Don't skip the toasted sesame oil! This gives the dish its classic Asian flavor, and it's very easy to find a small bottle of the oil in the Asian food section at just about every grocery store (including places like Walmart).
**I use a bottle of refrigerated pre-minced fresh garlic for an easy shortcut.
