If you love Chinese food, this is one of the best ground turkey recipes we have on our blog!

Ingredients needed for Chinese ground turkey stir-fry:

  • ground turkey
  • fresh mushrooms
  • green beans
  • rice vinegar
  • hoisin sauce
  • soy sauce
  • brown sugar
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • garlic salt
  • black pepper
  • onion powder

could I use ground beef with this recipe?

Ground beef works great in this recipe!

Just follow the same instructions, making sure to fully cook the ground beef in the skillet.

For this recipe, I would recommend a leaner ground beef – the sauce doesn’t stick as well to the meat when it’s a fattier percentage because of the additional grease.

 

how do I brown ground turkey?

Heat stove to medium high heat. Place your meat in a non-stick skillet.

Using a metal spatula grind up the meat, by cutting it with the sharp edge. You could also use my favorite kitchen tool – a chop stir! As you chop the ground turkey, be sure you are flipping and rotating it.

This will keep the meat from staying in one place and burning.

Continue to chop, flip, and rotate the meat around the pan until your ground turkey is in little bits, as much as you prefer it to be, and there is no pink. The meat will be a lot lighter in color than ground beef.

Once it looks like your meat has been cooked through, I like to rinse it in water to get rid of any fatty grease – but rinsing and draining is completely up to you.

 

what could I use instead of green beans?

If you are not a green beans fan, there are plenty of alternatives you could use.

I personally like to steam broccoli with my stir fry, but you could also use shredded carrots, thinly sliced or cubed sweet potatoes, zucchini, squash, asparagus, corn, or any of your favorite vegetables.

You could even add multiple vegetables to this recipe and it would taste delicious.

could I use frozen vegetables?

While it won’t be quite the same, you could still use frozen vegetables if that is all you have available.

If you use a microwavable frozen vegetable bag, we recommend either microwaving it, and adding it to the finished dish, or keeping it frozen, and letting it cook in the pan, with the other ingredients.

We don’t recommend microwaving it then adding it to the pan to cook with the other ingredients. The texture will be a little funny and your vegetables may get a little burned.
