Back to Main Dishes
1 pound of ground turkey (white or dark, I usually use white)
1 scallion/green onions, chopped fine
2 large cloves garlic, minced (can be the kind that is already ground up in jar, or fresh)
1 T fresh ginger (or the kind ground up in a jar)
1 T sesame oil
1/2 small green cabbage or 1/2 nappa cabbage
1/2 of a jalepeno pepper (optional), minced
salt and black pepper

Shred the cabbage (I cut it by hand into slivers, but can also use a food processor/shredder if you have one) and add to ground turkey in big bowl
Add 1-2 cloves of garlic, some shredded ginger, salt and black pepper , and chopped scallions (chop jalepeno into very small pieces and add if using it), add sesame oil to the mix
Mix everything up with hand in bowl and form into patties
Add sesame oil to cast-iron pan for cooking burgers and let it heat up on low-medium flame. Once heated, add burgers.
Cook them with a lid on initially until both sides are pretty well cooked, then take lid off to brown them more OR grill about 10 minutes each side.
