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:
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!)
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!!!
