One of the low-carb recipes I recently tried was ” ‘Crack’ Slaw” and I had to adapt it from this recipe (known as ‘Crack’ Slaw in the interwebs) to suit my taste buds. I may have mentioned in the past, I never seem to follow a recipe and its rare that when I make something again I do it the same way twice – unless I remember to write it down. I have gotten better over the years about making notes in my cookbooks. (sticky notes are great!)
I used 1 small pack of premade coleslaw mix which was cabbage and carrots.
First I cooked the hamburger with some pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. I stay away from as many salt based products as possible. Once that was cooking, in another pan I added some cooking spray and lemon juice. I like my vegetables with a little crunch, so your cooking style here can change. When my ground beef was done I added it to the cabbage mixture.
Topped it off with a pretty salad (organic). Pretty darn good.
The recipe has been updated with optional ways I have made it.
