Fresh broccoli slaw tossed with ginger and soy sauce mixed with tangy orange juice & lime, a pinch of hot red pepper flakes, and topped with flavorful, golden brown sausage bits.
Spicy Asian Slaw with Pork
- Brown sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring and breaking up sausage as it cooks. Toss in 2 of the chopped green onions during the last few minutes of cooking time. Set aside.
- Mix together the chopped cilantro and mint leaves, lime juice, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, fish sauce, the remaining chopped green onion, ginger paste, toasted sesame oil and pinch of red pepper flakes. Add this mixture to the cooked sausage in the skillet. Toss together to coat the sausage with all the sauce.
- For the dressing add the rice vinegar, orange or mandarin juice, soy sauce and olive oil to a small lidded jar and shake well to combine.
All the ingredients for this dish can be found at grocers, discounters, and/or international markets. This would be great with a cold beer or a chilled, crisp dry white wine. This is a very fresh dish.
