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. A crack slaw recipe includes 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 of 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 Points per serving, this crack slaw recipe could be a lifesaver!
