I found this on an old thread. For low carb, leave out the rice.
Crack Slaw
Servings: 2

2 portions brown rice (about 1/2 C uncooked)
2 portions lean ground beef (about 1/2 lb)
1 TBSP toasted sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, sliced
1 C broccoli slaw
1 C napa cabbage, shredded
1 TBSP lite soy sauce
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

1. Prepare brown rice according to its package directions

2. While the rice is cooking, in a medium skillet or wok, brown the ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove the beef from the skillet, drain and set aside.

3. Heat sesame oil in the skillet over med-high heat. Add garlic and green onions; stir-fry for 2 min. Add the broccoli slaw and cabbage; stir-fry for 2 min. Add rice and soy sauce, stir-fry for 2 min.

4. Return the cooked ground beef to skillet with rice and vegetable mixture and season with red pepper flakes, to taste. Stir until ingredients are well combined and heated through, about 2 minutes.

5. Divide into two portions.

It's supposedly so great that people say it is addictive!

There are SO many different versions of this. They key ingredient though is sesame oil. Gives you the oriental type flavor.

Here's my fav. I never measure this...just use the quantities that make the amount I want and then season to taste.

Grill boneless chicken breast and cut into strips or bite size pieces

Sautee shredded cabbage in sesame oil
Add a little red pepper flakes and minced garlic

That's the basic. To this I may also add water chesnuts or snow peas

toss in the chicken, and continue cooking till the chicken is reheated.

For maintaniners/people on higher carb plans, I wonder if wild rice would be good in this? It's lower than brown (real) rice, and would have about 16 net carbs per serving (it could be halved as well)...

Mine is
1 lb ground beef, browned
1-1/2 cup diced ham
1/2 mild onion, diced
3 pkgs angle hair coleslaw
1-1/2 pkg broc slaw
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 can chicken broth
1 or more cans water

I brown the hamburger in the sesame oil, add the ham and onions and cook for a few more min, then add coleslaw, broc slaw, soy sauce, chicken broth and water and cook for about an hour, adding extra water if needed. I like mine nice and soft. I love this stuff and was making up a batch a couple of times a week.

I LOVE crack slaw. It's truly addictive. I make it once a week and carry it for lunch 2-3 times during the week. It's the crunch I love and the Asian flavors.

Sounds good! I've got a bag of coleslaw that needs to be used up and this sounds like the perfect way to use it!

Thanks, everyone!

I browned the ground beef with garlic and red pepper flakes and then added 1T sesame oil.

I then added the 16 oz pkg of shredded cabbage, more garlic, red pepper and another 1T sesame oil.

I also threw in 2 T light Soy sauce.

I cooked it until the cabbage was soft.

It was very tasty!

Thinking about this thread yesterday and I made it for DBF (non low carber) last night. Since it's lent he was not eating meat, so I left out the meat and added water chesnuts and snow peas. He LOVED it!

I had heard of "crack slaw" but had never seen it or tried it. I just bought some sesame oil at the store and was wondering what I was going to do with it. Now it's on the menu for this weekend. Thanks for the idea!!

My version - and it is soooo addicting! Started making it when I started to add in more veggies.

2 lbs ground beef, turkey or venison - browned
2 pkgs broccoli slaw - sauteed in hot Fire Mongolian sesame oil and garlic

Mix in some crushed red pepper flakes
Shake in some soy!
Mix in the ground beef!

I can eat this dish for lunch for a week! If I feel that I am on the low end for calories in a day - shredded cheese melted on top is to die for! Broccoli slaw is on sale this week at our grocery store - trying to do M/E for the week - but this thread might have just ruined that idea! Or buy it and save it until next week!

I used Linda Sue's Recipe- I think it's the Sesame Oil that is the "key" ingredient.

I have a TRIPLE batch on the stove now ... I had more ingredients than I thought, so I ended up winging it a bit...

I didn't have red pepper flakes, so I used ground cyenne pepper instead... I like spicy, so I used a lot in mine!!!

I tried it, slaw still a bit crunchy...and YUMMO!!! Aside from any water retention from the soy sauce... I'm gonna be LOVIN' this meal!!!
