Asian Beef Atop Purple Cabbage

This is one of our families go-to week night meals.  It comes together in minutes and is gobbled up every time.  Its filling and nutritious. I love using the purple cabbage instead of noodles or rice, it turns such a great purple/ blueish colour, you know its packed with vitamins. The sweet and salty of the sauce is made perfect with a little kick from the red pepper flakes. You are going to love this one!

So wash them mitts, lets get cookin'.

Asian Beef Atop Purple Cabbage

1lb ground beef
1/4tsp red pepper flakes (more or less depending of taste)
1/3c chopped green onions
1tsp minced garlic
1tsp grated ginger
1/3c brown sugar
1/3c soy sauce
1tsp sesame seeds
1 head of purple cabbage shredded

In a large pan begin to fry ground beef breaking it up into small pieces.  Meanwhile in a large pot bring water to a boil to cook cabbage.  Boil cabbage for a 3-5 minutes, it won't take long depending on how small they are shredded.  You just want them tender but still a little crisp.  Drain and set aside to stay warm. When the beef is all browned add in the ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes and stir for a minute then add in soy sauce and brown sugar. Let it simmer for until the liquid is reduced, about 2 minutes. Just before serving toss in the green onions and sesame seeds.  Plate up by putting a generous helping of cabbage with the beef on top. More sesame seeds and onions to garnish. Enjoy!
