Shredded cabbage starts to look like chow mein when cooked in chorizo. Hence the name keto chow mein. The taste is amazing — savory and a little more crisp than traditional chow mein.
You can make this in 20 minutes or less.
This dish reminds me of some of the delicious and indulgent entrées I used to get from Chinese takeout places.

I like to get angel hair cole slaw in a bag, but any bagged cole slaw should be fine.
Hope you enjoy it!
