Now, let’s delve into the composition of our dish!

Ingredients :

  • 1 pound (about 450g) of ground turkey
  • 14 ounces (about 400g) of coleslaw mix
  • 3 green onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce (opt for a gluten-free version if preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (adjust to your heat preference)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A sprinkle of sesame seeds and freshly chopped cilantro for garnish


  1. Begin by enveloping your kitchen in the rich, comforting aroma of cooking meat. Heat a wok or a large skillet over a medium-high flame and add your ground turkey. Using a spatula, gently break the meat, allowing it to brown and cook through evenly. This process not only unlocks the deep, savory flavors of the turkey but also ensures a delectably crisp texture that forms the heart of our dish. Remember to season with a dash of salt and pepper to elevate the natural flavors of the meat.
  2. Next, let’s invite the aromatic duo of garlic and ginger to our melody. Once the meat is beautifully browned, stir in the minced garlic and ginger. Allow them to sauté for about a minute, just until they release their fragrant bouquet, harmonizing seamlessly with the rich, savory notes of the turkey.
  3. Here we introduce the vibrant coleslaw mix. Add it to the wok and let it weave its fresh, crisp textures into our rich melody, sautéing until it just begins to wilt, ensuring that it retains its delightful crunch, which adds a lively, refreshing note to our dish. At this stage, introducing the sliced green onions adds a subtle, spicy undertone that elevates our slaw to perfection.
  4. In this final step, we bring forth the conductor of our symphony – the sauce. A blend of soy sauce, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes is introduced to the wok, orchestrating a cascade of flavors that drench our meat and vegetables in a rich, savory, and slightly spicy melody. Stir everything together, ensuring the sauce lovingly caresses every morsel, and allow it to simmer for a few minutes, letting the flavors meld together in a luxurious, harmonious dance.
  5. To finish, garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and freshly chopped cilantro, adding a final layer of nutty and fresh notes to our delightful symphony.
  • 🍽️ And there we have it, dear friends, a melody of flavors, textures, and aromas that promises not just a meal but a journey, a symphony that nourishes both body and soul.

Cooking tips :

  • Allow your culinary curiosity to roam freely by experimenting with different types of ground meat. Consider trying ground chicken, beef, or pork each rendering its unique flavor profile to the crack slaw, thus, offering a new adventure each time.
  • Spice it up or down! If you’re crafting this dish for little ones or those with a sensitive palate, consider reducing or omitting the red pepper flakes. Conversely, for those who adore a fiery symphony, embolden your dish with an extra sprinkle!
  • Play with the sauces to create a unique twist each time you prepare your crack slaw. Introduce a dash of fish sauce for an umami depth or perhaps a splash of rice vinegar for a subtle, tangy note that will dance vivaciously on your palate.
  • Dabble with additional vegetables for varied textures and flavors. Sliced bell peppers, shredded carrots, or snippets of fresh spinach not only add a colorful visual appeal but also enhance the nutritional value and add delightful new notes to your culinary melody.
  • Ensure your dish is inclusive! Utilize gluten-free soy sauce or tamari to ensure that the lovely souls embarking on a gluten-free journey can savor your dish. For our vegetarian maestros, consider substituting meat with tofu or tempeh, ensuring they too can partake in this scrumptious symphony.
