American Drag Race Slaw

Ah, the start of the months food budget and slave is determined to save money. Bought chicken, ground beef, even frozen cod filets in bulk. Now to simply add fresh vegetables. This is the best recipe for healthy meals, full of flavor and not expensive.

This meal is so simple to throw together and tastes so good, that it was difficult to put any away for left-overs. So grab these few ingredients and go to town!

1 lbs. hamburger
a bag broccoli slaw mixture (its all cut up and ready to eat!)
½ cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic minced
1/3 cup low salt soy sauce
½ tsp. ground ginger.

Do your cutting first. Chop the onion, mince the clove of garlic.
Heat 1 Tbs olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and stir for about 4 minutes, then add the garlic and the ground beef all broken up.

Break up the beef and stir the onions and garlic into it. Let this cook stirring occasionally for about 8 minutes. Or until the beef is brown.
Now slave got a great deal on ground beef by buying a 5 lbs package. However these can have a lot of water added. So let this cook out. Drain any extra otherwise you will be boiling the beef.

Slave opened the hamburger roll on a piece of wax paper. Then with a table knife, cut it into approximately six portions. That is really all you need for most recipes.

Five portions have been placed in zipper bags and are freezing even as this is typed. Any time you buy in a quantity, always portion, then freeze. That way you only have to thaw what you need.

Now that the beef is browned, sprinkle in the ground ginger and pour in the soy sauce. Add the slaw mix as this is steaming and put a lid on it. Let this simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes. Then remove the lid and stir. Taste to adjust any seasonings. Some might like to fix a thicker sauce but this is not necessary.
slave served this with roasted fresh green beans. A true American classic fashioned after an oriental original.

Super easy and looks like you spent all day preparing. Num Num!

Here's our song for cooking along with:

So happy to be serving my Master Indy

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
