20 – 35 Minutes
In this paleo and gluten-free dinner, ground beef gets a hit of Korean-inspired seasonings and comes with a quick, naturally sweet slaw.
In your bag
- 10 ounces ground beef
- 1-inch piece fresh ginger
- 3 scallions
- ¼ cup almond meal
- 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (optional)
- 2 apples (such as Granny Smith)
- ¼ pound shredded cabbage (such as red or Savoy)
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
- Sun Basket slaw dressing (almond butter - coconut aminos - sesame oil - apple cider vinegar)
- Wooden skewers
- 1 lime
For the tenderest results, handle the ground beef as little as possible: Mix the meat and aromatics only until just combined before shaping the patties and threading the mixture onto the skewers. Overworking ground beef can make it dense, even rubbery.
