High Protein Beef and Cabbage Stir-Fry Recipe


Serving: 4 servings

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes


Stir Fry Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha
  • 1/2 tbsp Brown sugar

Stir Fry:

  • 1/2 head Green cabbage
  • 2 Carrots
  • 3 Green onions
  • 1/2 tbsp Neutral cooking oil
  • 1/2 lb. Lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Freshly grated ginger
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Garnishes (optional):

  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha


  1. Prepare the stir-fry sauce first. In a small bowl, stir the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, sriracha, and brown sugar. Set the sauce aside.
  2. Shred the vegetables so they are ready to go when needed. Cut one small cabbage in half, remove the core, and then finely shred the leaves of half the cabbage (4-6 cups once shredded, save the other half for another recipe). Peel two carrots, then use a cheese grater to shred them (1 cup shredded). Slice three green onions. Mince two cloves of garlic. Peel a knob of ginger using either a vegetable peeler or scraping with a spoon’s side, then grate it using a small-holed cheese grater.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the cooking oil, ground beef, garlic, ginger, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook the beef until browned (about five minutes).
  4. Add the cabbage and carrots to the skillet and continue to stir and cook until the cabbage is slightly wilted (or fully wilted, if you prefer). Stir in the prepared sauce and the green onions. Top with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and a drizzle of sriracha, then serve.
