sweet sour cabbage

I’ve already done the sweet and sour thing, but I decided to do it differently last night. I skipped the cauliflower rice, and stir fried some cabbage instead. It tasted awesome!

Asian Meatballs

* 3 lbs ground meat (beef, turkey, pork)

* 1/3 cup coconut aminos

* 1 Tbsp sesame oil

* 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

* 4 green onions, chopped

* 1/2 tsp fish sauce (Red Boat is GAPS legal)

* 1 to 1 1/2  tsp sea salt (Celtic, Himalayan)

* 1 tsp honey -or- 5 drops stevia (optional)

Mix all ingredients together. Roll into about 1 inch balls and bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Sweet and Sour Cabbage

*1/2 head cabbage, cored and cut into thin strips

*1 large carrot, cut into thin strips with a vegetable peeler

*2 Tbsp refined coconut oil (unscented)

*1/3 cup coconut aminos

*1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

*1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp honey

*sea salt (Celtic, Himalayan) to taste

Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet. Add cabbage and carrots and stir fry for a couple of minutes on medium heat. Add the coconut aminos, vinegar, and honey. Cook cabbage until it starts to turn tender and the flavors blend. Use sea salt to taste. Serve with meatballs.

Enjoy your dinner! And stay warm :).
