Black pepper mince and cabbage stir fry

    20 min

    Serve this easy and economical beef and vegetable stir fry with hot steamed rice. It's a simple Chinese stir fry that calls for lean beef mince but you can use beef stir fry strips, if you prefer. It's a nice way to use cabbage, too!

    Easy, healthy and tasty. Although I used about double the mince but then I like big portions!  -  13 Mar 2012


    We used ground beef sirlion, beef broth instead of water, a pinch of salt, Lawry's seasoning salt, Accent seasoning, onions, sesame oil, and added a combination of red and yellow bell peppers. Along with Minute Rice cooked in the remaining beef broth, this meal took at least 10 minutes instead of the five minutes suggested, but a quick meal regardless and very tasty! My hubby said it tasted like a lettuce wrap from PF Chang's ^_^  -  22 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Looking for a quick meal? This one is fabulous. I recommend, however, cutting the cabbage very thin with a mandolin and using a larger portion of the vegetables.  -  14 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
