This is a really quick dish you can put together in under 30 minutes. I originally thawed ground pork to make pork egg rolls, but couldn’t get enough large cabbage leaves off my head of cabbage to pull that off tonight. So I made a last minute menu change and did this dish instead. It was very good and my husband really like this one a lot. He had some rice with his serving. This dish is Induction friendly if you omit the sherry.

12 oz. sliced pork loin or ground pork
2 c. green cabbage, sliced
1/3 c. red bell pepper
3 green onions, chopped
4 large mushrooms, sliced
½ tsp. fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. chile paste (I use Sambal Olek available in many stores in the Asian foods)
1 T. soy sauce, low sodium
2 T. sherry (omit if on Induction or eating Paleo)
1 c. low sodium chicken broth (mine was non-fat)
3 T. coconut oil or oil of your choice
DIRECTIONS: Cup up all vegetables and set near the stove. Heat oil on high heat in a wok or large skillet and saute mushrooms until just half done. Add meat and stir-fry until no longer pink. Add seasonings and all vegetables to the pan. Saute until cabbage is pretty soft. Add liquid ingredients and sherry (if using) and simmer 2-3 minutes. Thicken with your favorite thickener (I use a few sprinkles of xanthan gum or guar gum, stirred in until thickened a bit). Serve at once.

I love your recipes. But like to ask if I can replace the pork with turkey or chicken breast and use the rest of the recipe? I can’t use any kind of pork products.
Would be awesome with ground chicken and chopped water chestnuts then wrap in lettuce leaves for some great lettuce wraps
I’m sure it would, Hope. It will have a much milder flavor with chicken, though. 🙂
Sounds great but also need clarification on how much pork. We miss you on the Atkins recipe forum and other forums. Judy
Oops! Sorry Judy. I’ve typed in the oz. on the recipe now. I posted this recipe clearly past my bedtime late last night. 🙂
12 what of pork? slices? ozs? lbs? gs? kgs? tons or perhaps litres? cups? decilitres? quarts? gals? …?
Sorry, that should read 12 oz. of pork, and it does now. 🙂 Thanks for catching this omission.
