2 Tbsp soy sauce ($0.18)
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil ($0.33)
1 Tbsp sriracha* ( $0.05)
1/2 Tbsp brown sugar ( $0.02)

1/2 head green cabbage ($1.78)
2 carrots ($0.22)
3 green onions ($0.17)
1/2 Tbsp neutral cooking oil ($0.02)
1/2 lb. lean ground beef ($3.90)
2 cloves garlic ($0.16)
1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger ( $0.13)
Pinch of salt and pepper ($0.05)

1 Tbsp sesame seeds ($0.08)
1 Tbsp sriracha ($0.05)

Prepare the stir fry sauce first. In a small bowl stir together the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, sriracha, and brown sugar. Set the sauce aside.

Shred the vegetables so they are ready to go when you need them. Cut one small cabbage in half, remove the core, and then finely shred the leaves of one half the cabbage (4-6 cups once shredded, save the other half for another recipe). Peel two carrots, then use a cheese grater to shred them (1 cup shredded). Slice three green onions. Mince two cloves of garlic. Peel a knob of ginger using either a vegetable peeler or by scraping with the side of a spoon, then grate it using a small-holed cheese grater.
