Whole 30 “Crack Slaw” Recipe

I promised you guys that I would post my recipe for Whole 30 compliant “crack slaw”. I found many recipes online that were VERY close to being Whole 30 compliant, but not quite…and on day 25, I can’t have “not quite Whole 30″ as an option! I’m too close to give up now!

This is a super simple recipe and doesn’t take long at all. You can add different/more/less spices and sauces as you see fit, but this worked and it worked WELL! Even my picky boyfriend liked it! I call that a win! ALSO…there are certain things, such as the homemade sriracha & coconut aminos that you can substitute with regular store bought sriracha & soy sauce if you are NOT doing Whole 30. This works best for me & my Whole30 lifestyle right now though, so that is what I am going to share! You can also use any ground meat you prefer. I believe ground beef (lean or not) works best for this specific recipe, but if you prefer ground turkey or ground chicken…by all means, go for it!! Here’s all you need:

Crack Slaw!


1 lb. ground Beef or Turkey or Chicken

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (you can also use coconut oil, sesame oil, ghee, Kerrygold butter…whatever works for you)

1-2 tablespoons of minced garlic

2 tablespoons of diced onions

14 oz. bag of coleslaw mix (or you can just shred cabbage if you don’t want the add ins) ((EDIT: I just found the Green Giant Fresh Southwest Vegetable Blend at Walmart & it is DELISH in this! Best batch I’ve ever made!))

3 tablespoons of coconut aminos (tastes like soy sauce without the soy & salt…soooo good!)

2 tablespoon sriracha (this recipe is from Nom Nom Paleo minus the honey!…love their site!!)

Salt & pepper to taste


1) Brown ground beef and season with salt, pepper, and garlic to taste. Remove from pan and set aside.

2) Saute onions, cabbage, & garlic in olive oil & cook until the tenderness you prefer (I like mine more cooked than most)

3) Add in coconut aminos, sriracha, salt & pepper

4) Add ground beef back into the cabbage & mix well

5) Serve warm & top with sriracha, salt, & pepper as desired per serving!


Let me know if you try this & what you think! And also if you make any substitutions or add something & you think it tastes great, let us know!! :) Enjoy!!!


  1. I’m so excited to try this as I start my day 1 whole 30 you are such an inspiration!

  2. I finally made this today after having saved the recipe since you posted it. Oh my gosh, it was sooo good! Since I’m not doing whole 30, I used reduced sodium soy sauce instead of coconut aminos. This recipe is a keeper and I’ll be making this often- so easy to make!

    LOVED this. Even my picky 8 year old liked it. I am going to try it without meat next time and add mushrooms. :-).

  4. Where can you get the aminos? ?? Not sure if Walmart has them? I love 1 stop shopping. ..

  5. Looks so yummy!! How many servings would you say this makes?

  6. I just made some and am eating it as I read this. This is the second time I’ve made it and I do love it!

    This is my third time making this! I added very finely chopped organic portabella mushrooms, and about a tablespoon of chopped cilantro. Mixed up sesame oil with Kerrygold Butter! I used Bragg Liquid Aminos in moderation and organic grass fed ground beef. This is a fabulous and quick dinner which has been a huge hit!
