  • 1 lb ground pork (or ground beef, chicken, or turkey)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 small head of green cabbage, thinly sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sriracha or chili garlic sauce (optional, for heat)
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. Cook the Meat:
  • In a large skillet or wok, heat a little oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the ground pork and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  1. Add Aromatics:
  • Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and ginger to the skillet. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
  1. Add Vegetables:
  • Add the sliced cabbage and shredded carrots to the skillet. Stir to combine with the meat and aromatics. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender but still a bit crisp.
  1. Season:
  • Stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and sriracha (if using). Mix well to ensure everything is coated with the sauce. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
  1. Finish and Serve:
  • Remove the skillet from heat. Sprinkle the sliced green onions and sesame seeds over the top.
  • Serve hot, straight from the skillet, and enjoy!
