A lower carb version of the Caribbean stir fry

Low carb Caribbean stir fryI made my Caribbean stir fry to take into work tonight and I was pondering how I might save some carbs. I'd like to serve it over rice but, as a diabetic, I really have to watch how much rice I eat.

As I thought about it, I remembered that cabbage is a regular part of Caribbean food. So, not wanting to spend a lot of time shredding cabbage, I picked up a package of cole slaw mix and added that to the stir fry. Viola! A more substantial meal without all the carbs.

If you'd like to follow along at home, I added the cabbage about a minute after I added the pineapple and peppers. That gave it enough time to wilt a little but still have some crunch. I also added a little more mustard and rum to the sauce.

If you try it, let me know what you think.
