As I was walking the produce section at the grocery store the other day, I saw this bag of coleslaw. There were a ton left and I thought “Surely there is something that can be made with this cabbage that isn’t coleslaw!” And here we are…. I bought three bags that day; I added one to a salad and it was delicious, and it took two tries to get this recipe where I wanted it. Moral of the story: see beyond a label and get creative with the food thats out there! This dish is delicious and so simple and made possible by a large bag of coleslaw -ha!
What meats are keto-friendly?
There are a ton of keto-friendly meat options! Bacon, beef, lamb, pork, and bison. Great fish options are salmon, cod, and tuna. If you are following a strict keto diet, be sure you don’t eat too much meat. Too high of a protein intake can actually throw you out of ketosis and you don’t want that!
Is the garlic chili sauce spicy?
Yes! I compare this sauce with Sriracha: a little goes a long way. If you really like spicy things, you can’t add too much of the garlic chili sauce. It has a great combination of spice and garlic. It enhances so many Asian dishes. Sriracha is more of a hot sauce, where the spicy aspect of the garlic chili sauce is just one of the flavors of this condiment.

How to make our Easy Keto Beef Stir Fry:
First, heat a skillet over medium heat and brown ground beef.
While beef is browning, combine the ginger, soy sauce, and garlic chili sauce in a small bowl and mix completely. When beef is done cooking, about 8 minutes, drain any fat and return to the heat.
Slowly add in the entire bag of cabbage and stir.
Last, pour the sauce on the mixture and completely combine while cooking on medium heat for an additional 4 minutes. Stir in the green onions and remove from heat.
Garnish with sesame seeds and serve!
