Best Crack Slaw Recipe?

There are SO MANY versions out there that I got so confused. So, let me ask you LCFs, what's the BEST crack slaw recipe? Thanks!

I just posted this in the other crackslaw thread , but I'll copy it here to save the scrolling around looking for the other thread. This is my personal favorite way to make it:

When I make this I keep it simple. Brown up hamburger (like a pound, if you're using one bag of chopped veggies) in the pan, drain the grease and put into a bowl. Add lots of butter and bacon grease (or chopped bacon, if I have it in the fridge) to the hot pan and saute a bag of cole slaw, broccoli slaw or rainbow mix. I usually add some garlic and maybe onion or onion powder, depending on how many carbs I'm willing to spare. Add back the meat once the cabbage is done to your liking. I eat this topped with either more butter or sour cream. Deeeee-lish!!!

This is from Linda Sue's website and is the one I use all the time. It's really good. She changed the name (as she describes at the bottome of the page), but it's Crack Slaw.

I am so pleased to see her give this a sensible name. Neither Crack nor Slaw ever made a bit of sense to me! LOL

if I were going to name something "crack slaw" it would be coleslaw made with DaVinci pineapple syrup.

The name confused me before too. I wondered why anyone would add ground beef to coleslaw LOL Thanks for the links! I've also seen some with Asian flavors which looked interesting.

btw, I am not getting updates to this thread even though I subscribed to it. Weird.

I make mine kind of Asian. I brown the ground beef with garlic and some sliced scallions. Add the bag of broccoli slaw and saute til done; about 10 minutes. Then I spice it up with fish sauce, tamari, peanut sauce and hot pepper flakes. So good....

It's called CrackSlaw because it's so good and is "food crack" just like Heroin Wings. Broccoli slaw is usually used for Crackslaw but there are many variations.

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.

I had no idea what "crack slaw" was and since I don't like coleslaw I just ignored it, LOL. What is broccoli slaw??? I love broccoli so that might be something good...hmm...

A lot of these recipes/ideas sound like fried cabbage. I absolutely love fried cabbage w/many different variations.

Thanks for the ideas,

Deanne

Broccoli Slaw...

I think people are referring to the bags of shredded broccoli, carrots, and maybe cabbage (?) in the section of your grocery with the prepared salads and salad ingredients. It's pretty inexpensive and delicious if you stir fry it in olive oil or, even yummier, in bacon fat.

I made crack slaw tonight for the first time. I used the recipe below but it was really bland, I had to add a lot of franks to give it some flavour

HAMBURGER CABBAGE STIR-FRY
1 pound ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
16 ounce bag coleslaw mix *
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Pinch ginger, optional
Pinch cayenne, optional
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons granular Splenda, optional
1 bunch green onions, cut on the bias (about 8 onions or 3 ounces after trimming)

In a very large skillet or wok, brown the ground beef with the garlic and a little salt and pepper. Drain the fat, if you like, or just leave it in. Add the cabbage and mushrooms and stir-fry until the cabbage is tender-crisp. Add the remaining ingredients and heat through. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.

I used a regular onion instead of green onions, and I added a red pepper.

Jenny, for that amount of veg, I add double the sesame oil and soy sauce and I also use 2 tbsp of rice vinegar (check the label as some have sugar added). I also add crushed red chili peppers as garnish!
