Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. (Add 2 tbsp salt as water is heating). While water is boiling, begin prepping vegetables (if you didn’t buy precut).
In large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tsp of olive oil. Add the pork, 1-1/4 tsp of salt and the garlic powder. Gently break apart the meat as it’s cooking and cook thoroughly for 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer pork to a separate bowl (strain liquid if necessary).
Add the cabbage, carrots, sliced scallion, ginger, coconut aminos, sesame oil, fish sauce and 1 tsp of salt to the skillet and cook. Stir frequently about 5 – 6 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring for 1 minute longer.
Combine the pork with the vegetable and toss. Add sesame seeds at the top and you’re ready to serve.
