We really enjoyed 1.5 & 2.5 year olds gobbled it up! I did cook the shredded carrots a bit once the beef was browned and let the hot beef mixture wilt the cabbage a bit before serving to make it more kid friendly. Will add some broccoli slaw to the mix next time to up the veggie factor. Served with some homemade gyoza. Definitely going into the regular rotation.


I had some ground beef that I wanted to use up when I came across this recipe. I'm glad I did because it was really good! I couldn't find napa cabbage at my local grocery store so I used the pre shredded cole slaw mix. It worked great but when I can find napa, I will try that. Only thing I wasn't sure of was if it was to be served cold or hot. I know, it's a salad but I tried it both ways and liked them both. I will make this again soon! Thx KKH3!


Dressing recipe gets 45 stars. I have made up a jar of it in the fridge. We did not care for this with the ground beef, but I as inspired by the ingredients to put something else together. I too used Napa Cabbage. I also used shredded carrots and a small bag of Brocolli Slaw mix from the grocery. I shredded a whole head of cabbage, a whole head of iceberg, added 2 large shredded carrots, and the whole bag of brocolli slaw. I put all of this in a huge Tupperware bowl and tossed it. That way it's ready to grab and put in a bowl for dinner or to take in a smaller covered bowl for lunches. Do not add the dressing til you are ready to eat it! I had angel hair pasta, so cooked some of that, ran under cold water and added to the salad at serving time along w/ sliced deli rare roast beef. Also dropped on 1/2 oz sliced almonds and dried cranberries last night for dinner. Having it again tonite with mandarine oranges. IT's AWESOME not to have to cook and this is the first main dish salad that hubby (midwest meat-eater) actually complimented me on. Adding to the regular weekly menue for the summer in Phoenix!
