curried crack slaw

has anyone tried this kind of thing? I don't have a recipe or anything, but I just make my own version of buffalo crack slaw. I've been wanting a curry lately and I think I might curry crack slaw a try! I'll add some coconut milk, and curry spices....could be good.

Crack Slaw - Thai Style


I was running through recipes trying to decide what to have for dinner and I found a Thai Crack Slaw recipe I've made in the past. Ok, originally, it was meant to serve over rice, but it makes a great Crack Slaw!

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 lb lean ground beef
1 teaspoon red curry paste
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup light coconut milk
1 tablespoon sugar free honey
1/4 teaspoon grated lime rind
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon fish sauce
about 1/2 head of cabbage, shredded

Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add a touch of oil (I use peanut oil - about 1 Tablespoon for lean ground beef). Add the ground beef and cook about 7 minutes or until lightly browned and starting to crumble. Throw in the garlic and cook about 30 seconds, then add the green onion and cabbage (I also sometimes add some red pepper). Cook about 3 minutes until cabbage is starting to wilt, then stir in the curry paste and tomato sauce. Cook until about half of the liquid evaporates. Add coconut milk, honey, lime juice and peel and fish sauce (or can use soy). Cook about 2 -3minutes or until slightly thickened. Eat.

I make curried crack slaw at lot!!

I saute about 1/2 onion in coconut oil until transparent. Add some chopped garlic and ginger. Then add 2tbsp curry powder mix (my own) and cook a little to "toast" the spices. Add ground beef and cook until well browned. Add slaw and simmer until slaw is at desired tenderness, then serve. Delicious!!!
