For the stir-fry sauce

Other ingredients


  1. Make the sauce: Whisk together the miso paste, water and soy sauce. Add the remaining sauce ingredients — syrup, vinegar, ginger, jalapeño, lime juice, and optional sriracha– and whisk to combine. Set sauce aside as you cook the turkey and cabbage.
  2. Start the stir-fry: Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet or wok on medium high heat. Add the onion, stir to combine with the oil. Cook about 3 minutes until it begins to soften.
  3. Add the turkey: Stir in the ground turkey, breaking up with a heavy spoon and combining with the onion. Add the remaining tablespoon oil along with the cooking wine. Cook the turkey, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes. It should be starting to turn white on the outside.
  4. Stir in the veggies: Add the bell pepper to the skillet, stirring to combine. Cook for about one minute, then add the cabbage in two batches — add about half the cabbage, stirring to combine with the other ingredients. Then repeat, stirring in the remaining cabbage. Stir-fry the cabbage for about two minutes.
  5. Add the sauce: Stir in most of the stir-fry sauce, leaving about a tablespoon in the bowl to use as a topping. Stir to combine well, then reduce heat to medium low, and cover the skillet. Cook for 5 minutes, until the cabbage has softened and the turkey has cooked through.
  6. Serve and enjoy! Plate a bit of rice, and serve the turkey cabbage stir-fry over the rice. Drizzle a bit of extra sauce for additional flavor (skip this step for those who like more mild flavors).
