Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. minced ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 2 small zucchini, chopped into half-moons
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, trimmed and cut into bite size pieces
  • 4 mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups green cabbage, shredded (you can shortcut by using bagged cabbage)
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp green onion, sliced
  1. Using a large deep skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper and use a wooden spoon to thoroughly crumble. Set the ground beef aside and drain the excess fat, leaving about 2 tbsp in the pan.
  2. Using the same pan, saute the garlic and ginger until fragrant.
  3. Add the carrots, zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms and cook for 5-6 minutes or until lightly crisp and softened, adding more fat to the pan if needed.
  4. Toss in the cabbage and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the cabbage has wilted and softened.
  5. Add the ground beef back to the stir fry along with the soy sauce and apple cider vinegar. Stir to cook for another 2 minutes to reheat and allow the flavors to combine.
  6. Serve topped with sliced green onion.
