  • 2lb lean ground beef
  • 1 shallot – minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger root – grated
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce

  • 2 carrots – shredded
  • 1 cup purple cabbage – shredded

Step 1: Rinse rice until water runs clear(er). In a small saucepan add 2 cups of water, a pinch of salt , rice and cook over medium-high heat.

Step 2: Place a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat and add the sesame oil to the pan. Once oil is warmed – add the ground beef and break apart. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and cook until beef is lightly browned – about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Add shallots, ginger, garlic, coconut aminos, onion powder,  red pepper flakes, fish sauce and honey – stir to combine with the beef and cook until it becomes crispy.
