This Keto Crack Slaw Makes Sticking to Keto Easier

One of the first recipes that comes to mind when I think of healthy eating and low carb meals is this delicious crack slaw. Obviously, there's no crack in it (thank goodness) but it does taste so good that it will quickly become addictive. What's even more surprising, is that our kids will devour this as well without blinking an eye and nothing makes a parent happier than getting healthy foods into their kids (and we all know how much of a struggle that can be).

We whipped it up for lunch on a video shoot day and scarfed it back between takes. It's spicy ( you can adjust that either way with the sriracha sauce) and full of flavour.


The best part to this is that you can use any kind of meat really, we've used everything from beef to turkey and it still tastes outstanding so feel free to mix things up and share your experiences with me in the comments below.


Keto Crack Slaw Tips & Tricks

  1. We prefer to use Minced Garlic as opposed to spending the time crushing and mincing garlic ourselves. You can buy minced garlic from Amazon in a jar that will save you a ton of time with your recipes and it lasts forever. I highly recommend it.
  2. You can use beef, chicken or turkey in this recipe (from our testing) depending on how much fat or which flavour you prefer. You can, of course, sub out other ingredients if you like as well.
  3. We tend to use Splenda as our alternative to sugar in this recipe but you can also substitute for other sweeteners. If you try others, let me know in the comments how it worked out for you.

    We made this for dinner tonight. So good. Going in to the regular rotation of low carb dinners. One question, white vinegar is listed in the ingredients but no mention in the instructions. I added at the same time as the hot sauce. Just wanted to mention for the next person5 stars

    • Mike Johnston says

      Thanks Shannon I’ll get that sorted ASAP!5 stars

  2. Matt says

    1 tsp of pepper is way too much for me. I cut it to 1/2 or 1/4.5 stars

  3. Bev says

    This was delicious! I made it as instructed with the exception of adding some cracked red pepper. We like hot/spicy foods. I will be making this regularly. Thank you very much for the recipe.5 stars

  4. Noelle McReynolds says

    Instead of sugar and soy sauce, I use coconut aminos which is naturally sweet and low on the glycemic index. Also, rice vinegar is good instead of white vinegar4 stars

  5. Kacey says

    This is amazing! My 5-year-old son had finished his first serving before the rest of us even sat down! I had to leave out the sriracha (kiddos don’t like spicy), but added extra soy sauce. SO delicious!! Thank you!!5 stars

  6. Sue Leavitt says

    Lamb is a thing that you love or hate. I made this with ground lamb and oh my! It was delicious!! Baaaaaah

  7. goody says

    I have been making this for a while, and I use Beyond Meat, so good, but you don’t need to add ANY meat product, I use onions, carrots, mushrooms, and then the cabbage, and the spices, really good 🙂

  8. Tom says

    Every time I make this every body wants the recipe. It’s easy & taste fantastic.5 stars

  9. Keto Guy says

    Followed the recipe and it turned out well. Found the cabbage needed quite a while to wilt to a texture I liked.4 stars
