Cabbage, Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry

I will tell you what--the pre-shredded bags of cabbage that you would use to make coleslaw are seriously my favorite thing right now. So easy to just throw a bag in with what I'm cooking and add some delicious texture and a healthy dose of veggies! So this stir-fry essentially stemmed from me having some shredded cabbage and celery that were about to go bad. Decided to saute it all up and WOW it was delicious! I used coconut aminos to give it more flavor, but you could use a gluten-free soy sauce if you have one. The longer this cooks, the better, so try and do the whole hour if you can!

1) 2 pounds of ground beef
2) 1 head of cabbage, shredded (or 1 bag of pre-shredded lettuce)
3) 2 onions, diced
4) 1.5 pounds of carrots, sliced or diced
5) 3 cups of diced celery (about 10 sticks)
Extra: 1/4 cup of coconut aminos or soy sauce alternative
Also: Salt and Pepper

1) Heat up a large pan over medium-high heat. Add your ground beef and diced onions and saute about 10 minutes, until cooked.
2) Add your chopped carrots and celery, and then add your coconut aminos. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on as well.
3) Stir in your cabbage. If your pan isn't big enough to accommodate all of the cabbage, add as much as you can and after 10-15 minutes it will cook down enough where you can add the rest. (This is what I did).
4) Reduce heat to medium and cover with a lid. Cook for 45-60 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes to ensure nothing burns.
5) Season with salt and pepper to taste. I ended up about a teaspoon or so of salt until it was where I wanted it flavor wise.
6) Enjoy! Leftovers are fantastic!
