CHINESE GREEN BEANS WITH GROUND TURKEY

January 12, 2020
This Chinese Green Beans with Ground Turkey recipe is my readers’ favorite! This dinner is quick, flavorful, and healthy. I bet it'll be successful at your house!

I’ve mentioned that we sleep in San Francisco and are surrounded by AMAZING Asian cuisine, so we’re pretty picky about our Chinese food. Once I saw a few ground turkey fry recipes floating around, I assumed turkey in an Asian-inspired dish seemed peculiar, on the other hand I remembered having something similar that had ground pork instead. Pork. Turkey. What’s the difference, right?

I’m so glad I made a decision to undertake these Chinese Green Beans with Ground Turkey because this easy meal was delicious! To form it even better, it takes but half-hour to organize , making it one among my best recipes for busy days!

This green bean fry was born for weeknights. If you'll find Chinese long beans in your supermarket, those make the recipe taste even more authentic. If not, regular American green beans are perfect too. Just confirm they're fresh (not canned!) For an excellent result. If you don’t have fresh available, try frozen instead. However you create yours, I hope you're keen on this Asian ground turkey recipe.

CHINESE GREEN BEANS WITH GROUND TURKEY

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic minced or crushed
  • 1 pound washed and trimmed green beans or Chinese long beans if available
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar

  1. Start rice cooking in lightly salted water.
  2. When rice is about 15 minutes from done, heat large skillet over high heat. Add sesame oil, and sauté green onions and garlic for about 2 minutes. Stir in ground turkey and sauté 3-5 minutes, until meat is mostly cooked. Crumble meat as much as possible.
  3. Stir in chili garlic sauce, hoisin sauce, and ginger. Add green beans and soy sauce, and stir to coat. Continue cooking over high heat for 7-9 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until beans are slightly tender.
  4. Stir in rice vinegar, and cook one minute longer. Serve over cooked rice.

You’d think the keto diet + a vegan lifestyle would be incompatible but tons of individuals are literally following a vegan keto diet and although very restrictive, is sort of doable. My boyfriend has been experimenting with this diet, and that I quite enjoyed the challenge of finding something we will both actually eat together.

The main thing with keto is extremely low carb, low protein and really high fat. So it are often tricky with the vegan lifestyle, mainly counting on just coconut, avocados, olives and a moderate amount of nuts and seeds for the majority of the fat sources.

  3. Add optional garlic powder and mix with the potatoes and more of the oil. Cook for another 10 minutes until the potatoes are completely done.
  4. Alternatively you can put the garlic, Brussels sprouts, and onions on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper. Season with salt and pepper. Roast everything for around 10 minutes at 425°F. Then add potatoes, and continue roasting for an extra 15 minutes.
