~ Lean and Green Meals

1 1/4 lb. ground beef
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 1/2 lb. cabbage, chopped
1 t. garlic, minced
2 T. sesame oil
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. Frank's hot sauce
1 t. apple cider vinegar
2 t. liquid Splenda
1/2 t. red pepper flakes (optional)

Brown ground beef in a large frying pan.  Season with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Remove meat from pan and set aside, but leave oil in pan.

Add cabbage, garlic, and sesame oil to pan and cook until cabbage begins to brown.  Add soy sauce, hot sauce, vinegar, Splenda, red pepper flakes, and seasoned meat to pan and heat for two minutes.

Makes six servings.

Notes: I love this!  We never have Frank's in the house, so I use a teaspoon or so of Tabasco sauce or one heaping teaspoon of chili garlic paste, skip the red pepper flakes, then put sauce or paste containers and pepper flakes on the table for people who want to make their serving spicier.  I don't use Splenda, sugar, or any other sugar substitute.  This is good plain, over rice, or with egg noodles.

This looks so good that I've clipped it to my recipes to try in Evernote. We're not eating beef during Lent but we have a bit potluck on Easter with our church and I think I am going to bring this! Thanks for posting!
