All dinners should be as easy and tasty as this low carb, low calorie crack slaw. The Asian flavors marry quickly in the wok with a protein punch from ground turkey. Thanks to AllRecipes.com I’m now addicted to the crack. Slaw, that is. I’m addicted to crack slaw. (P.S. Could this recipe have a worse name?)
The name, Crack Slaw, may be awful, but there is nothing unappealing about this dish, except maybe the number of ingredients. No worries if you didn’t magically catch all of the ingredients in that Flash-paced video. They are listed below. And, yes, the plethora of ingredients kept me away from the crack for a long time. What a fool I was! A fool! (Another P.S. – I skip the sesame seeds. I loathe those little things.)
Ingredients for Crack Slaw:
- 1 tablespoon chipotle hot sauce (such as Cholula)
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced ginger
- 1 teaspoon agave syrup
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper

Tip #1: Ground beef, pork, or chicken all work well in this recipe. So, mix it up. Use whatever protein you prefer.
Tip #3: A wok makes this and any other stir-fry easier to manage, but it’s not necessary, just make sure your pan has sides to contain the crack slaw while stirring. However, if you do want a wok, I love the one I have (pictured below).
Tip #4: Don’t get all heavy-handed with the sesame oil. It’s powerful stuff and will take over a dish if you use too much.
Man alive, I’m hungry! Time for some crack!
Happy eating, my friends.
