Have you heard of Crack Slaw? I had not and I saw a whole thread buzzing about it on Facebook a few months back and had to get in on the action. It is a healthy way to get your asian cuisine at home. It is basically one part sautéed ground meat, your choice of one or a mix of beef, turkey, chicken or pork and two parts shredded vegetables or coleslaw mixes dressed with coconut aminos, which is a healthy soy sauce alternative, and sriracha hot sauce. It is really good and so easy!
Crack Slaw is a healthier way to have Asian at home!
If you look it up on-line a ton of recipes pop up and many are for low-carb , paleo, whole food diets. I combined a few and put what I do below in the recipe box. It is one of those recipes you kind of just throw together and adjust the taste as you go. For this post, I made a huge batch with a mix of one pound each of ground chicken and turkey, one whole onion sliced, a bag of coleslaw mix, and a bag of broccoli slaw. It works well with beef or a meatloaf mix too. I have throw in peppers, asparagus, sliced Brussels sprouts .. really anything you have on hand. We have also served it in lettuce wraps. It is a great weeknight dinner when you don’t have a lot of time and want something flavorful and healthy. Enjoy!
- 1 lb. ground Beef (or Turkey or Chicken or Pork)
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (you can also use coconut oil, sesame oil, ghee, Kerrygold butter…whatever works for you)
- 1–2 tablespoons of minced garlic
- 1/2 onion, sliced of diced onions
- 1/2 bag bag of coleslaw mix
- 1/2 bag Broccoli Slaw
- 3 tablespoons of coconut aminos (tastes like soy sauce without the soy & salt…so good!)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger paste (you could also use 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced ginger or ground ginger)
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sriracha hot sauce
- Salt & pepper to taste
- In a skillet, brown ground beef and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Remove from pan and set aside.
- Heat up oil and sauté garlic, onions, vegetables and/or slaws until cabbage cooked to desired tenderness. We like our a bit crunchy.
- Add back in cooked meat to the vegetables
- In a small bowl mix together the Coconut Aminos, Sriracha sauce, ginger and vinegar.
- Pour dressing over meet and vegetable mixture and toss to coat.
- Mix well and serve!
- Serve with additional Sriracha sauce on the side for added spice.
- Works well with lettuce wraps
I usually double the recipe and add in what ever vegetables we have or like. Shaved Brussel sprouts, peppers, asparagus, anything you would stir fry works well.
