Main Dish

Ground Beef with Asian Slaw

1 cup white rice

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon each Worcestershire sauce, sugar, soy sauce

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

1 pound lean ground beef, chicken or pork

For the slaw:

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1 tablespoon each canola oil, lime juice, rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon each mirin, soy sauce

8 leaves napa cabbage, finely julienned

2 carrots, shredded

Fresh cilantro

Cook rice in 2 cups simmering, salted water until tender, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the lime juice, Worcestershire, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and cayenne in a small bowl.

Cook the meat in a large skillet over medium-high, breaking it up with a spatula, until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Drain any fat, and stir in lime juice mixture. Simmer a few minutes to marry flavors.

For the slaw, whisk oils, lime juice, vinegar, mirin and soy sauce in a large bowl. Add cabbage and carrots, and toss to coat. Serve slaw over rice, topping with the beef. Sprinkle with cilantro. Makes 4 servings.
