Asian Crack Slaw


Jump to Recipe
Since starting Keto, this has been my all time favorite go-to dish when I need something quick and easy. It’s super easy to make, I get all my ingredients from one place (Trader Joe’s) not to mention its filling, satisfying and addicting (hence the name).  I first heard about crack slaw from an Instagram account I followed at the time and thought it would be really good if I could put a little Asian twist to it.

If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, and can’t find broccoli slaw, you can make your own using by using a grater or omit it all together.  The Korean BBQ sauce adds a little more flavor which is why I like to use it but you can instead, mix your soy sauce in a bowl with a sweetener of your choice (equal parts) to create that salty, sweet, umami taste.  To top it off, a drizzle of sriracha before serving gives it an extra kick of flavor that is so good!

Now, let’s get started!

  1. I made this recipe. Some changes I made were:
    I used the cabbage kale salad blend from costco
    Replaced BBQ sauce and soy sauce with yakisoba seasoning packets that I had lying around from my carbivore days

    So basically, after dressing the top with:
    red pickled ginger
    seaweed powder
    katsuobushi
    low carb mayo
    siracha

    It became a ketofied yakisoba. Nifty, huh?

  2. Cool. Looking forward to it!!!
