crack slaw thou art my friend

So last night I got adventurous, and decided to track down and make this "crack slaw" i hear people talking about. Used Genaw's recipe for hamburger and cabbage stir fry with ground beef, cabbage, mushrooms, soy sauce and sesame oil..

Where has this been before? Wow. I did not expect it to be quite as tasty, but the sesame oil packs a nice flavor into it. Now I see why its called "crack" lol.

Sounds yum! I love sesame oil, are we allowed to have soy sauce? Or just tamari? I actually wasn't using it at all and miss it. Thanks for this recipe idea!

there is about 2 tbs in the total recipe, I think its listed as having 4.5 grams of carbs (net) per serving. HAMBURGER CABBAGE STIR-FRY - Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes

Best recipe ever. I eat it about twice a week. Try some hot sauce in it.

You know, I've been making a version of this for years and years, just came up with it one day, and it was several years before I realized that the "crack slaw" that people talked about here was the same thing I'd been cooking since long before I started Atkins.

Yes, soy sauce is allowed on induction.

i've always been confused about crack slaw. I mean, it's sliced cabbage, sauteed, and with hamburger meat, or whatever you have on hand? throw in some red peppers maybe, for color? But are people enamored of it because they've never had fried or sauteed cabbage before? please tell me!

It's good, it's not an omg zomg best thing ever. I grew up on cabbage, sautéed, steamed, raw, boiled with salt pork, so I like cabbage. For me it was an easy I make dish I could take with me to work, had meat and veggies combined, and was tasty

I might give this a go, sounds interesting and I'm sucked in by the notion that I can casually tell people I had crack slaw for supper I do love fried cabbage though, especially with crispy bacon and a little bit of onion. Also love kale chips. Nom nom nom

mmmm - i'm part hungarian, part german and part irish, so a love of cabbage is in my genes! I've got one at home - fried cabbage with bacon sounds terrific-- and my hungarian grandmother used to make something that was fried cabbage but also a little sweet? i'll have to look that up....then there's stuffed cabbage and cabbage soup....

I'm not a fan of stuffed cabbage, but cabbage is one of my staple veggies. I love it!

I wanted to try it last night and got excited, then realised too late that I used up all my frozen minced beef on a shepherd's pie. Bah!

I have no idea what makes it so awesome, but I really love crack slaw! I suggest using ground pork (if you can find it) or dice up some shrimp instead of the beef. It tastes like the inside of an egg roll, nom!

Yeah, I think that pork somehow pairs with cabbage better . . . but I am sure I'd snarf down any of these versions . Reminds me of the easiest of all go-to's, sauer kraut. I can't' do it very often but it is great for a change of pace. There's a good rueben casserole recipe floating around her. Ok .. my mind is wandering a bit . . .

My recipe calls for browning and draining the ground beef, then adding 2 Tbl sesame oil to the cabbage to cook it. Did you add oil back in?

1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
2 Tbl sesame oil (I like half sesame oil half butter)
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 green onions, sliced or 1/4 c diced onion
14 oz coleslaw mix or about 1/2 a large head of cabbage
2 Tbl low sodium soy sauce
good dash of crushed red pepper flakes
a few shakes of hot sauce
splenda to taste, I use 1 packet but others use more
a slice or two of fresh ginger root or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
a splash of vinegar, and sometimes it needs a splash or two of water to get the cabbage to cook right.

Remove beef from pan, wipe out pan, cook cabbage about 10 min with the seasonings, adding vinegar or water if it gets dry. Add hamburger in, adjust soy sauce, sometimes wants a little more butter added in or some more hot.

My coleslaw mix says 8.5gm per 1/2 cup of the 'raw' mix...which cooks down to next to nothing. Not sure how this would be filling and still keep the carbs down...particularly when you add other vegies.

I only used cabbage and a little garlic in mine. I had reheated leftovers and added melt butter and a touch of cheese that filled me up.

Not a good choice for those of us with thyroid issues. Cabbage will actually cause bloating & weight gain!

I tried it with bagged cabbage and wasn't that happy with it. I will try it again with fresh sliced cabbage. We like cooked cabbage here at our house.

People who are being treated with Levothyroxine or Synthroid for hypothyroidism should avoid all cruciferous veggies, including cabbage. I think that's because they can somehow interfere with the absorption of your meds.

And people who need to be gluten-free shouldn't eat soy sauce as it contains glutens.
