Simply Sunday- on Thursday! Lo Carbing it with Chinese Food

HI friends! Long time no post! but today's post is about food! Yes, more food but this time, Lo Carb! 

I found these two recipes online but adapted them a bit and want to take note of what I did and pin them on Pinterest so I have a quick reference. I hope you try them!

Please note, the rice was for the kids. I do not eat any grains and I avoid sugar too. The Pork Dish is on the left and the Beef dish is on the right but you can switch out the meats.

I have two recipes that I revamped. The first recipe is actually called "Crack Slaw" because it is so addictive, however I do not like that name and to me, it tastes like the insides of an Eggroll, so I am going to call it " Inside Out Eggrolls"!

Olive Oil
2 T Sesame Oil
3 T Soy Sauce
Cayenne Pepper- dash
Ginger Root- or Ginger- dash
1 lb Hamburger meat
Head of Cabbage
Yellow Onion, Green Onion
Water Chestnuts
Garlic- 2-3 Cloves
Sliced Mushrooms
Saute' the onions and garlic in olive oil. Add the sliced mushrooms. Add the hamburger meat and brown. Add black pepper and a dash of salt if you would like. Add the cabbage- we sliced it very thin, then the seasonings and sauces. 
The Sesame oil really gives it flavor! Now, add the water chestnuts and the sliced green onion for just a minute- then serve!

I made this on Tuesday night and loved it so much, that I made it again on Wednesday night! I decided to try a second recipe as well but using Ground Pork instead:

The Pork Dish is shown on the left- it has more color to it and a totally different flavor.
Here is my revised recipe:
1 lb Ground Pork (not sausage)
1 pack of Cole Slaw Mix- 16 oz
Yellow Onion
3 T Soy- I might use 2 next time
2 T of Oyster Sauce- this really made it pop!
1 T Sesame Oil
Garlic- 2-3 cloves
Dash of Red Pepper Flakes
Sliced Water Chestnuts if you wish 
Saute' the onion- sliced lengthwise and thin in strips, with the garlic. Add the Ground Pork along with a pinch of Red Pepper Flakes to your liking. 
Add the Cabbage Mix- love the color of the carrots in it!
Add the sauces and you are ready to eat!

I got both of these recipes from Genaw.com and would like to credit, Linda, the originator of these recipes. My recipes above are revisions of her recipes, and posted here for my reference. Just click the links below to ger her orignal recipes!
