  • pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced finely
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • ½ cup carrots, peeled and finely shredded
  • 16 ounces coleslaw mix
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ to ¾ cup low-sodium soy sauce, I used abouta little over ½ cup
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • green onions, optional garnish


  • Cook ground beef in a large deep-sided skillet over medium heat until no longer pink. Be careful to not break the ground beef into smaller pieces, keep the pieces larger
  • Drain grease and return to the stovetop. Add the onions and minced garlic and cook until the onions are soft and translucent. Again, keep the ground beef in larger pieces.
  • Add 2 tablespoons sesame oil, carrots, and coleslaw mix to the skillet. Use tongs to combine. Let cook for about 5 minutes.
  • In a small separate bowl, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, ground ginger, soy sauce, and vegetable oil. Pour over meat and coleslaw mixture.
  • Reduce the heat and continue to cook for about 5 minutes.


  • Keep your pan a bit cooler to not burn the garlic. You can always turn it up higher if needed, but burnt garlic will add a sour flavor to your recipe.
  • Check your supermarket for pre-shredded carrots to save yourself some time.
  • You can bring out the flavor of the spices by rubbing them together in your palms before adding them to the pan. You can also use a mortar and pestle.
