Asian Spicy Chicken Cabbage Wrap

My cooking is usually rather Asian oriented and rice is often paired with the dishes. Somedays if you would like to take a break from carbs, here’s a good dish as an alternative! 

INGREDIENTS
Ground Chicken0.5lb / 250g
Onion½
Carrot½
Shiitake Mushrooms6
Scallion1 Strand
Cabbage¼ 
[SAUCE] Soy Sauce1 Tablespoon
[SAUCE] Olive Oil1 Tablespoon
[SAUCE] Sesame Oil½ Teaspoon
[SAUCE] Sriracha1 Tablespoon
[SAUCE] Thai Sweet Chili Sauce1½ Tablespoons
[SAUCE] Sweet Bean Sauce1½ Tablespoons
[SAUCE] Japanese Grain Vinegar2 Teaspoons
[SAUCE] Minced Garlic1 Tablespoon
[SAUCE] Minced Ginger1 Teaspoon

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a small bowl, mix [SAUCE] ingredients together and mix well.
  2. Combine 1 tablespoon of the [SAUCE] mixture with the ground meat.
  3. Finely dice the onion, carrot, mushrooms and scallion.
  4. Heat some oil in a fry pan on medium heat and cook the ground meat. While cooking, use the edge of the wooden spatula to break up meat to avoid forming into chunks. When the meat is cooked through, remove it from pan to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add some oil to the same pan and cook the diced onions, carrots, and mushrooms on medium heat until softens.
  6. Add the meat and rest of the [SAUCE] mixture to the pan, toss well and briefly cook for a few minutes.
  7. When the liquid reduces, turn off the heat. Sprinkle some diced scallions over and serve with cabbage.
  8.  DŌZO!

Note: You can replace ground chicken with ground pork and cabbage with lettuce!
