Statesboro Slaw ~ BBQ Fest 2K11

Every Southerner knows that you can’t have BBQ without slaw. It’s crunchy, tangy and – because it is technically made up of cabbage and veggies – it makes you feel a little bit better about hogging out on pork for 5 days in a row.

This is JR’s friend’s recipe and the companion piece to Lexington Pork Shoulder. I have not had the pleasure of trying this yet, but I’m always happy with anything that allows me to increase my intake of ramen noodle seasoning to levels near that of my freshman year at Tulane. More sodium please!
—–
1 bag of coleslaw mix
2 Ramen noodle pkgs, chicken
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
 —–
  1. Remove seasoning packets from Ramen noodle packages and crush up noodles.
  2. Mix sugar, vinegar, olive oil, and ramen noodle seasoning packets.
  3. Add all other ingredients (raw Ramen included) and mix well. Chill and serve.

Spicy Southwestern Slaw

We made this last week for The Chef’s birthday, and it was a great alternative to your grandma’s mayo-slathered slaw. Barrett likes to serve this with fish tacos, but it was just as good with the coffee-rubbed brisket version we devoured like wild animals.

Feel free to up the jalapeno quotient if you like, but if you’re making it to go on the with the coffee-rubbed brisket tacos, you might want to keep it tame because they’ve got a pretty good amount of heat on its own.

4 cups of finely shredded green cabbage
4 tsp lime juice
4 tsp honey
4 tsp finely minced jalapenos
4 tsp chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Allow to mixture to marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours before serving
