Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Mild Tasting Oil (see notes below)
  • 1 Lb Pork ground
  • 1/4 Cup Green Onions sliced thinly. White + pale greens onion
  • Pinch Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger grated
  • 4 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/4 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/3 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 Cup Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Swerve or Lakanto (see sweetener notes below)
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Cup Carrot shredded
  • 1 Head Napa Cabbage 6 Cups shredded

Toppings (optional):

  • Roasted Peanuts chopped
  • Green Onions dark greens (the unused portion from above)

Instructions

  • Heat half the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  • Once shimmering add pork and cook until no longer pink. Break meat into small pieces with the back of your spoon as it cooks. Set cooked pork aside on a plate.
  • Add remaining oil to the pan along with the green onions, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the chicken broth, soy sauce, Swerve/Lakanto, carrots, and cabbage, and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat in the pan to bring the liquid to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes, or until the cabbage and carrots are softened to your liking.
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in the sesame oil and cooked pork. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.

Lindsey's Tips

Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste. 
Mild Tasting Oil. You want an oil with a high smoke point and mild flavor -- think avocado, vegetable, safflower, sunflower, peanut. Skip EVOO, coconut, or sesame oil.
Peanuts. These are optional, but highly recommended! They add great texture to the dish.
