Low Carb Dinner, Done Right!
I’ve fallen in love with making videos. If a picture says a thousand words, then a video screams them! It’s lots of fun recording the process behind making a dish and it’s really helpful to those looking for direction. If you have any questions about how to make a recipe, you can simply watch the whole video! It’s one thing to include step-by-step photos but those tend to take the backseat to the final images of the dish in its full glory.
The process behind the finished product is just as, if not more, important. Making a great food video really is an art. Shooting videos reminds us that the preparation can be beautiful too and hopefully that beauty shines through in all of our video guides.
So, for our next video, we decided to make a cult classic, Crack Slaw! This is a totally addictive slaw type mix that everyone is going crazy over. There are lots of versions of it circulating around the internet and they all have an Asian spin to them and ours does as well. With just a bag of coleslaw mix, some ground beef and a few perfectly blended seasonings, you will be enjoying a complete meal in a bowl in no time!

Of course, one of the best things about our easy crack slaw is that the entire dish is very low carb. This is super important to anyone who is following a keto diet and wants to try out the crack slaw internet sensation. Our version of the slaw turned out at about 4 net carbs per serving. Not too shabby!
Our nutritional facts were based on 88/12% ground beef, so if your beef is slightly different, your macros may be a little different as well. The same is true with some of the other ingredients like the soy sauce and the bagged coleslaw mix. If you opt to use coconut aminos in place of soy sauce (a very common substitute especially for those looking to cut back on sodium consumption), the macros may increase slightly. The type of bagged slaw you use may also alter your nutritional info a little bit. However, regardless of fat content of the meat or the amount f sodium in your soy sauce, the net carbs should stay the same!
Once you check out our video, we know you are going to want to start cooking this delicious full meal in a bowl. It is easy, flavorful and a total dinner win. It’s hard to go wrong with crack slaw! It really does live up to its name and is quite addictive…
Love Asian cuisine? Give these a try!
Here’s how we make it!
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tbsp sesame seed oil
- 1 lb ground beef (we used 88% lean)
- 10 oz. cole slaw salad mix
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- 1 stalk green onion
- Start by heating your sesame seed oil in a large wok and crushing 2 garlic cloves into it. Cook until fragrant.
- Add in a pound of ground beef and break up with a wooden spoon.
- Once your ground beef is browned, about 5-10 minutes, add in your cole slaw salad mix and toss to combine.
- Add in sriracha, soy sauce and vinegar and toss. Let this cook for about 5 minutes for the cole slaw mix to wilt.
- Season with salt, pepper and sesame seeds. Serve with a sprinkle of green onion and enjoy!

This recipe was made with love by our amazing readers!
Just made this for the first time and it was a huge hit!
I just had to let you know just how much my family and I enjoy ? your version of crack slaw with it’s unique Asian influence. I usually stick to your outlined recipe but have on occasion gone right off the board and stepped it up a notch by adding different veg and spices. (Bam!!) I use my instant pot on sauté to create our favourite new fish. Very weight watchers friendly. Can’t thank you enough!!
Thank you so much for the kind words! It’s great to hear that you and your family enjoyed it! <3
has anyone added ginger? if so, then how much?
Yes! All the time!
Anytime I use ground beef, I brown it first, put it in a colander and run hot water over it. Removed all the extra fat. Then I’d follow the directions from the beginning
Make this all the time but instead of hamburger I use hot pork sausage from jimmy dean. Gives it a different flavor
We made this to the recipe one night and then decided to change it up. We used pork instead of the hamburger and added bean sprouts and water chestnuts. You could add in any vegetables that you want, of course, but the pork made a huge difference in flavor to us.
I just made this and it was fast and good. Used less siracha, put the green onions in and threw in some leftover mushrooms. Had a head of green cabbage, so chopped it up and used that, rather than the mix. Yummy!
I added a dash of cayenne and left out the sriracha (I don’t like it). This was amazing. Next time I will add more coleslaw mix, I like the vegetable more so than meat.
Made this tonight! So good and so easy. Done in less than 30 min.
I just made this ad realized at the last minute that I had no white vinegar. I used rice wine vinegar and it was fantastic. So easy, so delicious!! Thank you for sharing.
What type of vinegar do you use?
Regular white vinegar 🙂
