Crack Slaw Recipe – 2 Smart Points

Crack Slaw

So apparently, this “crack slaw” thing is a big deal. I’ve been hearing all about it lately, and with such an interesting name, I had to see what in the world it was. Crack slaw is basically just a simple stir fry made with cabbage and ground beef that is supposed to be so incredibly delicious that it’s addictive. Just like crack. Given that it’s high in protein, and low in sugar and carbs, I knew this would be a perfect Weight Watchers recipe to try. So I did a bit if research, and came up with my own version of crack slaw. I choose to use ground chicken instead of ground beef to lower the fat content, added in some broccoli slaw I had on hand, and made a few tweaks to the seasoning. And I have to say, this was pretty darn good! You could definitely play around with this and incorporate any veggies you’d like. Red bell pepper, snow peas, mushrooms are a few great options. And at just 2 Smart Points per serving, this Weight Watchers recipe could be a life saver!

  1. Yes this is six smartpoints!

    Can’t print here either.

  2. I made this tonight and I was very skeptical. My husband and son were watching me make it and ready to order a pizza…but I have it say it was DELICIOUS! We all loved it! Thanks for a great recipe!

    How does this recipe have 0 grams fiber?

    • LaaLoosh says:

      Because I use the Weight Watchers calculator to tally the Points for each of my recipes, I only list the nutritional value for the ingredients that will count towards the Smart Points total. So all fruits, vegetables and any other 0 Point are not included in the nutritional values that I list.

  4. Who cares how many points! Just made for myself – as I had most ingredients on hand (except I used ground turkey and real broccoli). Seriously, I’m gonna eat this from now til I die!

  5. Also had the same thing happen when I tried to print.

    Hopefully you can help me understand how you are getting 2 points per serving on this recipe. When I put the recipe in WW, I get 6 points per serving. Still not bad but am I doing something wrong?

    • Sure! The only ingredients that will count towards the Points are the chicken, soy sauce, vinegar, sriracha sauce, olive oil, and sesame oil. Using the labels on the back of each of those items, I added up all the nutritional info, and my totals are posted at the bottom of the recipe. I entered those totals into my calculator to get the Points value.

      • on the WW points plus there are 0 points for soy sauce, vinegar and sriracha sauce. The only ingredients that would add points are the chicken, olive and sesame oil.

      • If you create a recipe on the WW website and add in these exact ingredients, it’s a 6 point meal. Still really good, but definitely not 2 points per serving. The ground chicken alone is 18 points…which divided by 4 is already more than 4 points per serving.

        • This is precisely why I rarely use the WW calculator, and I use the nutritional labels on the foods that I cook with. The ground chicken that I use 120 calories, 2g fat; 1g sat fat, and 22g protein per 4oz. Making it 2 Points per serving, and just 7 Points for the entire pound of meat. I feel that the online WW calculator is not very accurate, and I always rely on my labels. :)

        • Ground chicken BREAST is 1 point for a 4 ounce serving. A pound is 16 ounces. So, each full pound of ground chicken breast is 4 points. There is a difference between ground chicken and ground chicken breast. I hope this dispels the confusion.

    • Mine came up at 6 points also so I added extra cabbage, changed it to 5 servings and got it to 4 points. I also used turkey sausage which really gave it an added zip.

    The recipe does not print our for me – just the text from the blog. I’m not sure this is a problem on my end or yours. (Love your blog!!)

      The “Print Friendly” button doesn’t work on IE, Chrome, or Opera….just sets up the photo and article 1st page.

      A little guidance on the cabbage would have been nice…what is a medium cabbage? In our area a 3 pounder is small and half of that is was way too much cabbage (I made a wild guess that it needed to be shredded…no mention in the recipe.) Maybe a measure could be used, such as “Shred 1 pound of cabbage” or something to that effect.

  8. Oh my gosh…that looks so good! I must be the only one to have never heard of crack slaw, but I want to make it this weekend, if I can get to the grocery store. Thanks for posting!
