CRACK SLAW – because its addicting.
One of my go-to Low Carb meals is this delicious recipe I found on Pinterest. I put off trying it because I’m not a huge fan of cabbage – boy was I wrong to put this off. This has become a staple in my diet and each time I make it, I tweak it for my taste – you will tweak yours too – but here is the basics:
what you will need:
- 1 lbs. Ground beef or turkey or sausage
- 1 bags Dole Cole Slaw Mix
- 2 Green Onions
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 2 tbsp Soy Sauce (you could substitute with aminos or other)
- 1tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tbsp Hoisen Sauce (or something sweet – splenda works too)
To start, brown up the ground beef.
While you are browning this, mix up the green onions, garlic, soy, sesame oil, crushed red pepper and ginger in a bowl.
Drain your ground beef and put back into your pan.
In the same pan, add the bag of Cole slaw mix along with the sauce mixture and stir on medium heat until cabbage becomes tender. Don’t over cook this – It tastes better when there is still a slight crunch!
Now, add some Hoisen sauce to this and stir it up (this really brings the asian flavor). If you dont like hoisen, you can leave it out, or try adding a packet of sweetner – The sweet balances out the acidity of this dish and makes you very HAPPY!
YOU ARE DONE!
You may decide to add less crushed red pepper, or you may decide you want more soy sauce – this recipe can be manipulated to taste how YOU want it to taste.
Any way you eat it – its Low Carb, and delicious!
Pack it up for lunch. This warms up nicely in the microwave and stays good for several days!
Don’t put this off another day- and make a double batch! You will be so glad you did!
Oh, and don’t say I didn’t warn you about the “crack” part!
