- Instead of chopping your own veggies, you can buy a bag of coleslaw mix and use it.
- You can use chorizos, ground chicken, turkey, ground beef pretty much any kind of meat you can use.
- If you are using some other ground meat then consider seasoning the meat with everything bagel seasoning.
- For my vegan friends you can use crumbled tofu instead, I am not sure how it will turn out but someone of you can figure out a vegan version please do share in comments.
Can You Make Ahead?
I won’t recommend making them ahead, as stir-fry recipes work best when served right from skillet to plate. But this dish makes delicious leftovers and reheats well, the only thing is you will lose a bit of crunch. This is a great meal prep recipe! Prep on Sunday and enjoy throughout the week as a salad, side or snack. Make a double batch!

- 1 and 1/4 lb. spicy bulk pork sausage
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 cups green cabbage, shredded
- 1 medium carrot, shredded
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 tbsp. fresh ginger, finely minced
- 2 tbsp. green onions, chopped
- 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp. coconut aminos or tamari
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
- Heat a large high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking the meat into small pieces as it cooks, for approximately 5-6 minutes. Once sausage is no longer pink, remove from heat and carefully drain excess grease from pan. Safety Tip: Wipe off any excess fat that drips down the side of the pan before returing to burner.
- Return skillet to heat. Add water and scrape up brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a spatula. Reduce heat to medium and add shredded cabbage, carrots, garlic powder, sesame oil, ginger, and green onions. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cabbage wilts and the carrots softens, approximately 4-5 minutes.
- Add rice vinegar and coconut aminos and stir to combine. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving platter or bowl. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
You can replace sausages with other ground meat like chicken, turkey, beef.
Serve with additional soy sauce for an extra savory meal.
Replace soy sauce with coconut aminos in order to comply with the Whole30 food program and also for a gluten free dish.
Shrimp also goes great in this recipe! Saute the shrimp in olive oil first (cook until shrimp are pink-this takes only a few minutes), remove from the pan and add them back in at the very end.
You can use prepackaged coleslaw mix if you do not like chopping veggies.
