Today I’m going to share a recipe for Egg Roll in a Bowl, better known as “Crack Slaw”.
Presumably, it’s called Crack Slaw because of how addictive it is. As I was making it, I had one of my other addictions playing in the background: the movie Mama Mia.
Yes, it’s time for me to finally admit the truth.
I love this ABBA fueled extravaganza. I find it delightful and I cannot wait to see the sequel. I dare you to watch this trailer for Mama Mia 2 and tell me it doesn’t look kind of great. (below) Possibly a hot mess, but an enjoyable hot mess just the same.
But let’s get back to this addictive cabbage dish.
It truly is an Egg Roll in a Bowl. You’ve got cabbage, mixed with onions, garlic, red bell peppers, ground pork and Chinese spices. And even with all the vegetables, it still clocks in at just 9g net carbs per serving. Pretty good for an egg roll. Ok, now back to my precious Mama Mia movie.
I ask you, where else do you find grown men doing this?
