Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the meat mixture

  • Cut a small corner from the ground meat 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 [2 tsp].
  • 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.
In a large bowl, combine the meat, ginger, white parts of the scallions, and as much sambal oelek as you like. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Refrigerate the meat mixture while you prepare the slaw.

2

Make the apple-cabbage slaw

  • Core and thinly slice the apples.
In a large bowl, toss together the apples, cabbage, sesame seeds, green parts of the scallions, and half the slaw dressing (set aside the remaining dressing for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3

Shape the patties; cook the skewers

  • Using wet hands, form the meat mixture into 6 [12] ovals; thread each onto a wooden skewer.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the skewers and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.

Serve

Transfer the skewers and apple-cabbage slaw to individual plates. Serve the remaining dressing as a dipping sauce on the side.
