All the flavors you love in "crack slaw" are here in a tidy cabbage wrap! Using ground beef, some Asian flavors, and toppings, create a tasty lunch that each person can customize. Don't want any heat? Leave out the Sriracha. Want more heat? Add some crushed red pepper. Can't stand cilantro? Use fresh parsley, instead. Make these the way you like them. Serve with additional coconut aminos or soy sauce, if desired.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook ground beef in the hot skillet, breaking up any large clumps, until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and onion and cook until vegetables soften, about 4 minutes.

  • Add coconut aminos, Sriracha, ginger, garlic, and vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Evenly divide mixture among 8 cabbage leaves; sprinkle carrots and onions on top. Sprinkle green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes on top. Roll each cabbage leaf over and around filling to form a packet.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute coconut aminos with soy sauce if desired.

Use a broccoli slaw instead of carrots, if preferred.

Very good. Needed a little sweetness though. Added some sweet soy sauce...brown sugar would work too. Steamed the cabbage leaves to make them a bit more pliable. Great recipe! Will make again. Read More

This was a hit with my husband! I added 1/4 cup each of chopped waterchestnuts and bamboo shoots for some extra Asian flavor. I also steamed the cabbage leaves for a couple of minutes to make them softer and easier to roll. It was delicious and easy. Read More
