If you’re like me, I’m always looking for new ways to prepare ground beef – because it’s one of the less expensive meat choices and it cooks up quickly.
The strangest mix of ingredients make up this dish, but they all work really well together to make a quick and flavorful meal.
Thai-Like Ground Beef & Cabbage
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 tsp – 1 Tbsp Thai red curry paste
- 1 9-ounce can tomato sauce
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- 1 13.5-ounce can coconut milk
- zest from 1 lime
- juice from 1 lime
- ½ head of cabbage, thinly sliced or 1 14-ounce bag of shredded cabbage or Cole slaw mix (without the dressing)
- fresh cooked white rice
In a large skillet, cook ground beef with garlic cloves and onion. When onion is tender and beef is cooked through, add red curry paste; mix well.
Add tomato sauce, fish sauce, coconut milk, and lime zest and juice; stir until well blended. Add cabbage and cook until tender and heated through.
Serve over hot, white rice.
