It's a delicious one-pan meal that is fast and satisfying for low carb lovers.This Sriracha Slaw Recipe is my new low carb best friend. I can't believe I have never come across the myriad of recipes for 'Crack Slaw' before.

After reading a few recipes, I gathered that the idea was to sauté some coleslaw mix, add meat and spices to it --- the kind that would put a bit a of heat under the whole mixture.  All the comments swore it was irresistible.

My first foray into Crack Slaw territory was this version -- the Sriracha Slaw recipe with beef. (I've seen it made with a lot of other things -- Frank's hot sauce,  barbecue sauce and Italian dressing to name a few.)

It is super fast to make (under 20 minutes) and disappears out of a serving bowl almost as quickly.  One of the secrets to the speediness of this recipe is that you buy a bag of coleslaw salad mix instead of taking a lot of time chopping up veggies.

You can use pretty much whatever leftover cooked meat you have on hand, like chicken or shredded pork.

I lightly sauteed the onions, ginger and garlic to infuse the oil with their flavor. I tossed in   the cabbage mixture and mixed in the rest of the liquid ingredients.  I then added the already warm meat and stirred this pan of deliciousness just long enough to warm it through, but leave the veggies still crispy.

I quickly pan toasted a Tablespoon of sesame seeds to sprinkle over the top. I also sprinkled a little extra Sriracha Sauce on my portion.

I admit with slight embarrassment, that I didn't have the patience to look through my kitchen drawers for chopsticks before my DH and I dug into this very satisfying and delicious meal.   We loved it.  Enjoy!  Laura

PS -- We tried it with chicken the next day and sprinkled cashews on the top.  It was heaven.
