People are often surprised to learn that lean beef can also be good for their heart. In fact, a recent study shows that as part of a heart-healthy diet, it can reduce cholesterol levels. This dish is a perfect example, pairing lean ground beef with nutritious vegetables and fruits. Cabbage provides cancer-fighting powers, while apples add natural sweetness and fiber.
- 10 ounces ground beef
- Fresh ginger
- 2 scallions
- ¼ cup almond meal
- 2 teaspoons sambal oelek (optional)
- 1 lime
- ¼ pound red cabbage
- 2 apples
- Slaw dressing base (sesame oil - apple cider vinegar - coconut aminos)
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
- Wooden skewers
Prep the beef mixture
- Cut a small corner from the ground beef packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; finely chop the white parts and thinly slice the green parts on the diagonal, keeping them separate. Set aside the green parts for the slaw.
Make the slaw
- Juice half the lime; cut half into wedges for garnish.
- Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
- If desired, peel the apples. Cut the apples into quarters and cut away the core. Thinly slice the fruit.
In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage, apples, and green parts of the scallions. Add the sesame seeds and half the dressing and toss to combine.
