I love easy Asian recipes – they are always a great choice for weeknight dinner and bring a nice variety to weekly recipe rotation, such as this Asian Beef with Mushrooms and Snow Peas or these Asian Noodles with Mushrooms and Snow Peas.
This Asian stir fry with ground beef, broccoli, and cabbage is no exception. Easy, delicious, it takes only 35 minutes to make. The recipe is gluten free as I am using gluten-free tamari sauce. Regular (non gluten-free) soy sauce can be used as well if you’re not gluten free. The recipe is so basic – there are only very few very simple steps to making this recipe.

Your delicious Asian beef, broccoli, and cabbage stir-fry is ready! It’s a great way to use cabbage! You can easily double this recipe to use the whole cabbage head. This recipe uses only half of the cabbage head as it’s quite a lot of volume when chopped, and I was able to fit only half of it in my largest cooking pan.
