My husband & 4 boys loved it! It's a good,quick,cheap meal for a family on a budget. I got pre packaged Cole slaw & broccoli slaw. We also sprinkled sesame seeds on top. So many textures & colorful. So I only had to cut the purple cabbage & I grated the carrots. Super simple & low carbs. Def. making again & added to my favs. Folder. Read More

This was good - I made it with left over cubed white turkey meat from Thanksgiving but I don t think that detracted. It does need some additions I think. I didn t have cilantro which would definitely make it better. I didn t want to add sugar because not everything I make should be sweet but I can see how that could help. Wolfgang pucks Chinese chicken salad has what I think is horseradish- sounds gross but it works! Green onions sesame seeds more garlic - tahini? This is one to play with. Read More

This is really really good-and yes it is addictive. I messed with the veggies using snow peas and bean sprouts and I didn't have any red cabbage so I doubled the green cabbage. I also added hot peppers. I used marinated steak that I had sliced super thin instead of ground beef (didn't have any on hand). The "sauce" is pretty darn tasty. The addition of the lime and cilantro is key here. Adding all the other veggies though I think kept it away from being a "slaw" and more a stir-fry-still good but I veered it away from its original intention. The taste is addictive refreshing and crisp. It served nicely with a cold beer. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

After reading the reviews I did use less cabbage more beef more ginger and aromatics and some sugar. I added blanched sugar snap peas and I really liked this dish! Great for bento box the next day... I had to hide some to make sure it survived until then! I really liked the versatility of this recipe. It does help clean out the refrigerator of veggie tidbits. Read More

I added 1/4 cup sake, 3 tbsp mirin, and 3 to 4 tbsp of honey to the soy sauce and sesame oil; this remedied the very much needed sweetness punch. I increased the ginger and garlic to 4 tbsp. I also used 2 lbs of thinly sliced beef. I kept the cabbage amounts the same. The cilantro and lime hits are a must at the end. I bet those who say that they feel something is missing probably skipped the fresh cilantro and lime juice. It really does make a difference. I will likely add cayenne to it next time as we love heat around here. Read More

Made this tonight as instructed but only used green cabbage as they were out of purple. Next time I will buy a bag of pre-cut coleslaw so it has both. I used about 1/4 cup gluten free tamari soy sauce since that's what I had left and used Trader Joe's Coconut amminos for the remaining amount which were really good and had a hint of sweetness with the savory flavor of soy sauce without the soy. Highly recommend it. Also used Trader Joe's sirracha sauce for the hot sauce called for. Added quite a bit since we like it fairly spicy. Definitely add the fresh lime juice and cilantro as called for as it boosts the flavor. I also added some sesame seeds and liked that addition. My husband thought this was great and said he'd eat it again for sure! It's a winner a our house Read More

We loved this recipe. It makes a lot so we only used a quarter head of each cabbage and julienned the carrots. It sounded like an unusual recipe but the floors are wonderful!! Also doesn't hurt there's no carbs gluten or dairy. Read More

I loved this dish! Made it with ground turkey and used 2 bags of a shredded red cabbage/green cabbage mix with carrots. Added a habanero pepper in lieu of hot sauce. Everything else was the same (and no sugar). As the name says I found the flavor addicting and it was only with great will power that I limited myself to one helping. Read More
