Lately, I have been obsessed with this recipe. I have been craving Chinese food and this definitely filled the void. This recipe is inspired by a few floating around the internet, its typically called Crack Slaw. You can guess why! The stuff is so good you will want to eat it all! But, you can find the original recipe I modified here at Peace, Love, and Low Carb (P.S. I love their website – it’s a great resource and gives me some serious blog goals!)
While the recipe turns out looking pretty bland it is packed with deliciousness! Plus, it really does taste like an egg roll – no deep frying required. To alter the recipe I removed the carrots and replaced the sesame oil and some of the other ingredients that I wasn’t sure about for the IP phase 1 protocol. This makes 2 servings…and trust me you will want more of it. So, I doubled the recipe so I would have it for lunches and dinners throughout the week. I feel like I am becoming a food prep pro!
What other things would you like me to share to help you become a food prep pro? Let me know in the comments.

Recipe by: Jamie Boden at My Beautiful Ideal
For the Slaw:
- 1 pound ground chicken (or beef, turkey, shrimp – any protein that floats your boat)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 3 1/2 cups shredded cabbage
For the Sauce:
- 1/2 teaspoon Splenda
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 2 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
- In a large skillet, brown your protein until cooked through.
- Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- While the protein is browning prepare your sauce. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl until combine.
- Drain excess fat from your protein and set aside.
- In the same pan, heat olive oil over medium/high heat.
- Add the green onion, garlic, and cabbage.
- Cook until cabbage is slightly wilted.
- Stir in sauce.
- Add the protein back into the pan and stir everything to combine.
Tips: Top with additional Sriracha. Also, a few slices of fresh cucumber or a scrambled egg would also be great to add.
