It’s Crack Slaw Y’all!

I can’t believe it took us so long to discover this tasty dish! Louis mentioned it to me first, saying he saw a slaw that had ground beef in it and looked really good. Of course I Googled it and came up with tons of results for Crack Slaw. It earned the name because people find it addicting, and I have to say, I’m always sad to reach the bottom of the bowl. And just a heads up, although most recipes say they make four servings, Louis and I eat the whole thing for one meal. It’s really a one dish meal, so you want a bigger serving.

2 tbsp toasted sesame oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 green onions, sliced
