  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 9 ounce bag cole slaw mix or mix of green cabbage, purple cabbage, shredded carrots
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • black sesame seeds for garnish


  • Combine soy sauce and sriracha in a small mixing bowl and stir until smooth. Set aside.
  • Heat a 3 quart or larger pan over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and tilt the pan to spread the oil. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart.
  • Add cole slaw mix to the pan and stir with the beef. Cook until cabbage is wilted and tender, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Pour sauce over the pan, and add ginger. Stir until everything is well-mixed. Add salt to taste, if needed.
  • Remove pan from heat. Stir in sliced scallions, and garnish with sesame seeds. Serve while hot.
