Red slaw recipe?
 
I have been watching some TV shows where they were talking about Red Slaw (Lexington style). I have Googled some recipes but was curious if any of the Brethern might have what they consider to be the ultimate recipe?

Use your favorite slaw recipe and use red cabbage instead of green.

CuriousLayman 09-08-2013 08:36 AM

1 head (or bag) cabbage
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
4 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons sugar
touch of hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

It's better if you let it sit for a few hours. This recipe shows up in a couple of books (I first saw it in Holy Smoke). I typically add just a little cayenne or chipotle to it as well.

Thanks. I like this one because it isn't as vinegary as some that I found.

I agree it sounds very different but this is the way they eat it in NC. I want to try it without making a long road trip.

Not the NC I lived in. But those folks west of I-95 have their own ideas.

Yep that's the way it's eaten from the piedmont west. From piedmont east is a mayonnaise base slaw. The tomato base is better in my opinion but never heard of ketchup in it.

Here is the "official" recipe from the North Carolina Pork Council:
