Delicious Ground Pork and Cabbage Stir-Fry recipe is a flavorful and easy meal for your family!



For the sauce

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon light vinegar such as champagne vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1/4 of a lime, juiced
  • dash of sriracha sauce

Other Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 cups cabbage, chopped in thin slices
  • 1 cup other greens such as kale or spinach, chopped
  • 1 green onion (scallion) chopped


  1. Make the sauce: whisk the miso paste, water and soy sauce together in a bowl. Add the remaining sauce ingredients – syrup, vinegar, ginger, lime juice and sriracha. Whisk to combine. Set sauce aside.
  2. Begin the stir-fry: heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet or wok on medium high heat. Stir onion in with the oil. Cook about 3 minutes, until the onion begins to soften. Add the red bell pepper, and cook another 2 minutes.
  3. Add the pork: Stir the ground pork into the pan, using a heavy spoon to break it up and combine with the onions and pepper. Add the remaining tablespoon oil. Cook the pork, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in cabbage: Add about half the cabbage, stirring to combine it with the other ingredients. Add the remaining cabbage, stir to combine. Stir-fry cabbage for about 2 minutes, then add the additional greens (kale or spinach).
  5. Add the sauce: stir in the sauce, combining it with the pork and cabbage. Reduce heat to medium low, and cover the skillet. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until the cabbage has softened and the pork has cooked through. When done cooking, remove the cover and stir in the scallions.
  6. Serve: Plate a portion of rice, and serve the pork and cabbage stir-fry over the grains. Offer additional sriracha at the table for those who want some extra kick. Enjoy!


  • If you like, you can reserve about a tablespoon of the stir-fry sauce to pass at the table for people that would like a little more serving.
  • We like the Weak Knees gochuchang sriracha from Bushwick Kitchen. You can have extra sriracha available at the table for people who would like some.
