Ingredients

  • 1 large onion , chopped
  • 500 g ground pork or ground beef
  • 796-mL can plum tomatoes , drained and coarsely chopped
  • 213-mL can tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 454-g pkg coleslaw mix , or 1/2 cabbage

Instructions

  • Lightly coat a wok or large saucepan with oil and place over medium-high heat. Add onion and crumble in pork. Using a fork, stir frequently to keep meat crumbly until it’s almost cooked through, 3 to 4 min. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and seasonings. Stir often until flavour develops, about 5 min.
  • Meanwhile, slice green pepper into thin strips. If using a cabbage, thinly slice. Add pepper, cabbage or coleslaw mix to pan and stir often, uncovered, until cabbage is tender, 4 to 5 min. Taste and add salt if needed. It’s good on rice or mashed potatoes, or wrapped in a tortilla.
