Pork or Chicken with Cabbage and Sesame Seeds

As some of you may have noticed, I try to incorporate alot of veggie and fish dishes into my meals, since meat can be contribute to inflammatory problems.  I do eat some lean meats though, including beef, pork, chicken and turkey.

Here's a recipe I invented a few weeks ago when looking for a yummy way to cook cabbage.  I love how inexpensive cabbage is, and it's been used to help people lose weight since it is low in calories.  Along with other cruciferous vegetables, they are high in idoles, which have been found to help prevent cancer.


Lean pork or chicken breast, sliced
1/2 cabbage, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp tamari
1 onion, sliced (optional)

Cook pork or chicken in oil over medium heat in a large pan on the stovetop.  The pan should have a lid, as that will be needed to steam the cabbage in the next step.  Once meat is cooked through, add cabbage and onion to pan and cover.  Turn heat down slightly and cook until cabbage is wilted.  Once cooked add tamari and sesame seeds.  Mix so that cabbage and meat is lightly coated.  If necessary add more oil and tamari.

Serve with brown or basmati rice if desired.  Makes 4-6 servings, depending on amount of meat used.
