Cool Crackslaw

I love crackslaw and it's helped me lose a ton of weight Basically it's a mixture of ground meat, shredded cabbage and/or carrot and Asian spices. It's really addictive and great if you like Asian food.

There are various recipes for it at http://www.crackslaw.com and you can fiddle with the recipes to make your own version. I like it with ground chicken for a lighter flavor or with imitation crab for a fishy result but it's good with beef too. Less than 5 net carbs per portion and it's yummy!

Never heard of it before, but it looks delicious. I've got my husband interested as well. One caution - imitation crab contains starches, monosodium glutamate and other unsavory ingredients. You might want to stick to real meal and seafood.

I like it with beef, cabbage and plenty of hot sauce. If it's really rich tasting I usually eat less. When I make this I halve the recipe and split it with my husband because that's 2 portions exactly, so I know the carbs, else I'd probably polish off the whole thing!

I just recently started making a version of this with ground moose meat. I have a ton of cabbage and looking for something different to do with my game meat.

My hubs won't eat cabbage not unless I sneak it into a stir fried veggie dish..but me on the other hand..love cabbage and ground beef.. so I have to buy that Angel hair cabbage mix....not the coleslaw mix...and just take a couple of handfuls out for me...or else I can eat the entire thing...but to be honest I am a leery about those bags of already cut cabbage, lettuce etc.. as everytime I see they are a causing salmonella...so I buy my own cabbage and shred.. though that defeats the purpose and convenience of it all..LOL..

I shred fresh in the food processor. It's quicker that way. I find the bagged kind fresh enough but it's far more expensive than buying one fresh cabbage. Of course I wash it well first.

Eating cooked cabbage (in crackslaw) is a much different proposition that eating raw cabbage in cole slaw. The heat should kill the germs. Still I'm with you, fresh cabbage, cut up at home is tastier and retains more vitamins. Even with shredding the cabbage yourself, crackslaw is a quick - and delicious - meal.

I've been trying to come up with new LC soups this winter and I bet crackslaw could be turned into soup really easily. Thanks for bringing up this thread again and giving me the idea.

I worked out that making it with 2 lbs of beef and 14 oz of shredded cabbage, with all the seasonings, it was around 17 carbs for the whole recipe. I'd say I ended up with at least 8 cups, so certainly 4-5 servings.

Here are the seasoning ingredients I used because I had them on hand:

2 t. minced garlic, 1/2-1 t. sweetener, 1/2 t. ground ginger, 2 t. (white) vinegar, 2 T. soya sauce and about 2 T. Srircha chile sauce

I have spent over an hour looking for a recipe like this "here". But found a lot of other recipes like this on other LC bulletin boards...I like this one it has fresh ginger in it (Yum) so I will post it "here" and hopefully it will be well received.

http://victoriahaneveer.com/recipes...w/#.U4t-afmwJcQ

ngredients
1 lb ground beef
2 minced garlic cloves
¼ teaspoon artificial sweetener
½ teaspoon minced fresh ginger or ¼ teaspoon ginger powder
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon white vinegar
3 sliced green onions
14 oz coleslaw mix (or shredded white cabbage)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
½ teaspoon hot sauce
Salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions
Brown the ground beef in a skillet and season it with salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the beef from the pan and set aside. Drain off the fat if you wish.
Heat up the sesame oil and sauté the garlic, onions and coleslaw mix or cabbage in there until the cabbage is cooked to the desired tenderness.
Stir in the hot sauce, soy sauce, sugar or sweetener, vinegar and ginger.
Add the ground beef back in and mix well to combine.
Serve with hot sauce on the table for people who like it extra spicy.

I love the crackslaw recipes and have made my own version several times. I've made an Asian, Indian and Italian versions.
They are so good that I lose all sense of portion control when I eat them.
