Tips To Customize Crack Slaw or Eggroll In A Bowl
Use different types of protein. Ground Beef, Sausage, Ground Pork, Ground Chicken, or Ground Turkey will all work. Pick your protein of choice. I used 85% lean ground beef. However, You could also combine beef and pork for a different twist.
Vegetable Shortcut.  Yes. You can buy heads of different types of cabbage, but I recommend saving time and using a Coleslaw Mix of your choice. I like to use Broccoli slaw, made of shredded broccoli, to add some extra wholesome goodness to the dishl. It will also give it a little more crunchy texture. IMPORTANT: If your package of coleslaw mix includes a package for a sauce, do NOT use that in this recipe.
Shredded Carrots. To add additional color and nutrition, I add 1/2 cup additional shredded carrots to the coleslaw. You could also add other vegetables as well, such as thinly sliced red or green bell peppers.
Oil. Use sesame oil, if you have it. Otherwise, you can use olive oil, avocado oil, peanut oil, or your favorite oil to cook the onions, garlic, and ground beef. Sesame oil has a very unique flavor. However, unless you plan to use it in other recipes, I don’t recommend going out to buy it just for the small amount used in this Eggroll In A Bowl (Crack Slaw) recipe.
Soy Sauce. Soy sauce gives this recipe a lot of flavor. You can use gluten-free soy sauce or Coconut Aminos, which is a healthy gluten-free alternative to soy sauce. 
Rice Vinegar. Often combined with soy sauce in Asian dishes, it is sweeter than most other vinegar. If you don’t have it, try using apple cider vinegar or white vinegar as a substitute. 
Sriracha. Sriracha is a unique hot sauce often used in Asian dishes. If you don’t have it, you can use another type of chili garlic sauce or any type of hot sauce you like.
