No sugary stir fry sauces, or hamburger buns here. Just the best part of a cheeseburger.

Low carb cheeseburger stir fry is an alternative for that cheeseburger craving.

Skip the drive thru at lunch this week, and make a batch of this low carb meal prep instead. 

Can I use ground beef instead?

Yes! My husband actually prefers the recipe with ground beef, but I am a fan of ground turkey. Any lean ground meat will be just fine for this recipe.

I like sauce, Is this a saucy recipe?

No, this is not a saucy stir fry. If you have ever tired the ever popular egg roll in a bowl recipes, this is very similar to that style.

Can I freeze this?

No, I personally don’t freeze this. Frozen cabbage reheated is a no for me.

Do you have more low carb lunch preps on the blog?

While I am not an exclusive low carb blogger, I do have Low Carb Chipotle Tuna Boxes, Low Carb Bacon and Eggers, Kung Pao Beef and Cauliflower Meal Prep for my low carb readers!

Really, pickles? In a Stir Fry?

Yes, yes, yes, yes. Crunchy pickle slices are a staple in a good take out burger, so yes, pickles in a stir fry. Brace yourself for your mind to be blown. Your’e welcome.

No ketchup with this cheeseburger?

No, not as written in the recipe – because, low carb is the goal here.

But, my husband reports that adding ketchup is a game changer for this recipe and he adds it, so I say – go ahead and add it to fit your way of eating!

Which Containers do you use?

    Ok! This one snuck up on me! I was not expecting to love it as much as I do! I’m definitely keeping it on hand, printing it out and putting it in the quick recipe binder! I had everything on hand and it came together in under 10 minutes. Good thing, because I was STARVING! I loved the way the coleslaw mix wilted just a bit, and I added a bit more at the end to give it a little crunch! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the mustard in there but it was the PERFECT flavour to make it taste like a cheeseburger. SO SO Good! If you haven’t made this yet, you HAVE to give it a try, especially if you’re low-carbin’ it up!

      This was a genuine surprise to my family. Had been meaning to fire it up for lunches but needed a quick and different dinner idea. Added in some precooked bacon I had in the fridge, gave it just that little extra pop! Will for sure be making this again and again.
