There are probably hundreds of variations of this recipe floating around. I designed this one to help my challengers find the RIGHT version to pack in a ton of veggies and meat with NO guilt.
Here are a few hints!
Make this EASY on yourself! Buy pre-packaged Coleslaw! These are my faves to use! Find your faves at the store and use those! Each of these were 12 oz.
Instead of losing half of your meat in the sink as you try to drain off the extra liquid/fat, blot with a paper towel.
The key is to scramble the eggs on the side of your pan = less dishes!
Finally, I make this recipe on the bland side on purpose! Let your family spice it up as they see fit (= less complaints). Want some suggestions!? How about
- your favorite hot sauce
- Frank’s Hot Sauce
- Yuzu Hot Sauce from Trader Joe’s
- Liquid Amoinos
- Low Sodium Soy Sauce
The choice is up to you! This is a super versatile, family favorite, QUICK and EASY one dish healthy meal.
On purpose, I don’t add a lot of flavor when cooking this dish. Instead, I let the hubby use good ol’ regular soy sauce on his portion, I add some coconut aminos on mine (as well as the Yuzu hot sauce I talked about here) and leave it plain for the kiddos to dress up as they like.
- 1 inch piece of peeled fresh ginger, finely diced (I usually do 2 inches)
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2–3 cloves of garlic, finely diced (optional)
- 2 lbs ground turkey or chicken (I prefer organic)
- 2 bags of Cole Slaw mix (I usually try to find an asian slaw, as well as a rainbow or other fun one — but really, any slaw from cabbage/carrots/veggies will do just fine)
- 4 eggs
- Sesame oil
- Coconut Aminos
- Heat a LARGE pan over medium heat. Add a turn (about 1 tsp) of sesame oil and 1 tsp of EVOO. When warm, add in your onions, sauté about 2 minutes. Then, add in your garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant.
- Add your ground turkey/chicken to the mix. Stir and break up and cook until no longer pink. I will usually add a turn of coconut aminos here to give a hint of flavor.
- Drain any excess grease/liquid from pan. I usually use a paper towel to soak it up.
- Add your two bags of Cole slaw to the pan. Stir so everything is mixed up. Let cook for about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- When the veggies are almost cooked to your liking, scoot them all to one side of the pan.
- Spray the open section of your pan with nonstick spray and crack in your 4 eggs. Scramble the eggs on the side of the pan, then when cooked, mix it all together. Serve!
- I top mine with the Yuzu Hot sauce I mention above. Hubs tops his with soy. Kids — well, that depends on the day! This is a fun dish to serve with pretty much any hot sauce.
