Spicy Asian Ground Turkey With Cabbage

"I've jotted down the basic recipe to a meal we enjoy. I usually adjust it to taste as I cook. I eat this in lettuce cups but I also serve it over brown rice or with noodles. I adapted the dipping sauce from another recipe because it like so much."

ingredients

directions

  • Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a wok or large pan. When hot add ground turkey and stir fry it for 5 minutes. Add Hoisin sauce, hot chili sauce and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Continue to stir fry until almost cooked through. (I use the pampered chef tool to break up the meat into small pieces).
  • In a bowl, combine the scallions, half of the ginger, cabbage, half of the chili pepper, the garlic, the 3 tablespoons of soy sauce and the lime zest.
  • Add vegetable bowl mixture to wok and continue to stir fry until cooked but still slightly crisp.
  • While the turkey and vegetables cook, make the dipping sauce. In a bowl, combine the remaining ginger and chili pepper, the 1/3 cup of soy sauce, the lime juice, the sesame oil, the honey and a splash of water. Taste and adjust the seasoning; if it's too salty, add another drizzle of honey.
  • Before serving the meat stir in the cilantro leaves.
  • Garnish with extra cilantro leaves and serve with the spicy lime dipping sauce.
  • Wrap in lettuce cups or serve over noodles or rice.

"I LOVE to cook...it is very relaxing to me. A big THANKS to all the cooks on this web site for sharing their recipes and always giving me wonderful meals to make. Our pugs, Norman and Otis are the biggest foodies we will ever know. I'm another one of "those people" that read cookbooks like novels. I'm forcing myself not to buy anymore! because I don't really cook from them I just like to read them. I prefer using my cookbooks and recipes online because they take up less space and are always accessible. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">"

    Delicious! To me, the flavor combinations in this recipe are perfect. My only complaint is that the it was a tedious recipe to follow. I was using a netbook and the screen is small so it was a little frustrating to try and follow the instructions. But, with this delicious result, all is that frustration is forgotten. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe!

    Excellent!!! I made 2 mistakes--not using low sodium soy sauce and not making a double batch!!

    We LOVED this, but I have to admit that I didn't make it as directed, mostly because I didn't have all the ingredients. I had ground turkey and knew I wanted something like this to put over rice (didn't have any lettuce leaves). I doubled the sauce that was used in the turkey, subbed kale for cabbage and instead of making the dipping sauce on the side, I just added those ingredients to the turkey toward the end, subbing lemon for lime and leaving out the cilantro. Everyone loved this, including my daughter's picky boyfriend, and my DH said at least 3 times how good it was, and that I needed to make it again. Definitely a keeper - thank you!

    I make this recipe all the time. It's a favorite in my house. Recently, I used the ingredients and made turkey meatballs and glazed them with the sauce. Absolutely delicious. Thank you!
