Why I Love This Recipe
When I’m looking for a quick and delicious meal that has plenty of vegetables and protein, stir-fries always fit the bill. This one, reminiscent of the yummy filling found in Chinese egg rolls, starts with the ground meat of your choice and bagged slaw, and gets a spicy, creamy kick of flavor at the end from a two-ingredient drizzle. This is the next best thing when you are craving something like an eggroll and don't want an emergency trip to the orthodontist because you crunched your way to a broken bracket.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 Tbsp. EVOO or Vegetable Oil
1 Lb. Ground Pork (Turkey or Chicken are fine as well)
1/2 Tsp. Kosher Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
1 to 2 Tsp. Sriracha (or Whole30 compliant hot sauce, such as Tabasco, Cholula, or Pete's Redhot)
4 Scallions (thinly sliced (about 1/3 cup))
3 Cloves Garlic (minced)
14 to 16 oz. Cruciferous Slaw Mix (such as Trader Joe's Cruciferous Crunch)
2 Tbsp. Coconut Aminos
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high until shimmering. Add the ground meat and season with the salt and pepper.
Cook, breaking up the meat into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir the mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon of the hot sauce together in a small bowl. Taste and add more hot sauce as needed; set aside.
Add the scallions and garlic to the frying pan and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the slaw mix and coconut aminos and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.
Serve the stir-fry in bowls drizzled with the spicy mayonnaise.
