Ingredients

    Lean Ground Pork, 1 lb-can use burger or ground turkey
    Sesame Seeds, 1/4 C-can use flax seeds
    Cole Slaw Mix, Fresh Express, 10 oz pkg
    Sesame Oil, 1tsp
    Peppers, sweet, red-any color or hotter chile peppers
    Siracha Hot Chili Sauce, 1tsp
    Rice Vinegar, 1Tbsp
    Garlic, minced fresh 2 tsp
    Scallions, 1/4 C - any kind of onion or try leeks
    Snow Peas, fresh, fine julienne, 1/2 C
    Kikkoman Low Sodium Soy Sauce, 1 Tbsp
    Ginger Root, fine minced 2 tsp

Tips

This is quick and easy and if I don't have snow peas I leave them out.I buy garlic and ginger in jars already minced to save time. If I don't get the cole slaw mix with carrots and red cabbage I grate carrots and add them with the peppers. I've also used the broccoli slaw mix and it's different but just as addictive. I've used Tabasco or Texas Pete's or Red Chile Paste instead of Siracha. This is one of my go-to recipes because it is so versatile. I like the pork or turkey better than hamburger just because they absorb the flavor of the ginger/garlic better. But I've used chicken and left out meat completely-increasing the sesame oil. And if you don't have rice vinegar any old kind will work! Frozen peas can also be added. Seriously, any veggie that you like to stir fry will make this "your way"!


Directions

Get all your ingredients prepped and near the stove. Put sesame seeds into large saute pan or wok. As they start to brown add the tsp of sesame oil. Add in the lean ground pork (or you can use hamburger or ground turkey) and break up and cook, stirring until no pink remains and the meat is crumbled pretty fine. Toss in the garlic and the ginger and mix with the meat and sesame seeds being careful not to burn the garlic. Toss in red bell pepper (or any/all color you have on hand-yellow, orange or green all work and you can use a hotter chile pepper if you choose). Stir and toss in the diced scallion and the snow peas. Dump in the bag of cole slaw mix and drizzle with the soy sauce and siracha and rice wine vinegar. Toss thoroughly. Turn off the heat and just let it steam a minute. Serve!

I like this crisp so under cook the veggies. I also toss in any other veggies I have on hand that would go in and make it tasty...sometimes I add fresh mushrooms or julienne radishes or daikon radish. Sometimes I'm in the mood for spicier so increase the Siracha or add in more onions and garlic and ginger. I never use the splenda...just don't need it. Don't bother with the sesame seeds if you don't have them. It's just such a quick stir fry with the great chinese restaurant taste and it really is addictive...which is why they call it "crack". I refrigerate the left overs and eat it cold!
