Servings 4


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pounds ground beef note 1
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pounds white cabbage shredded (around ½ small head)
  • 2 cups grated carrots tightly packed
  • 2 cups mung bean sprouts lightly packed - optional (note 2)

For the sauce

  • 6 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated or finely minced (note 3)
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce note 4

For garnish

  • Spring onion rings and sesame seeds.
  • Serve also with sweet and sour chili sauce if you like.


  • Heat the oil in a big pan over high heat.
  • Add the beef and cook until not longer pink, breaking it up while cooking. (drain if there is a lot of fat released)
  • Add the spring onions and the garlic and cook another for 1-2 minutes until onions start to soften.
  • Toss in the cabbage, carrots and mung bean sprouts and stir.
  • Mix the ingredients for the sauce (soy sauce, ginger, sriracha sauce) in a small bowl and then pour into the pan.
  • Give everything another stir and cook on low to medium heat until the vegetables have desired softness. (note 5)
  • Add salt, pepper and chili to taste and serve hot with some sprinkled spring onions and sesame seeds.


  • Note 1: You can also use ground pork or turkey.
  • Note 2: If you don´t want to use mung bean sprouts you can just leave them out or substitute by adding more cabbage instead.
  • Note 3: You can also use ground ginger, use around 1 teaspoon instead.
  • Note 4: Leave out or substitute with hot or chili sauce.
  • Note 5: Cooking time depends on how thick you’ve cut the vegetables. I like to cut it very thinly and therefore the cooking time is only around 7-9 minutes.
You can also use packed coleslaw vegetables instead of cutting it yourself.
If you like you can play around with the vegetables, bell peppers, mushrooms or broccoli fit very nicely.
Use sesame oil instead of the neutral oil to add some more flavor.
