How To: Recipe Adaptation

Just after I posted my Sweet, Tangy & Crunchy Slaw recipe I had an
epiphany. I was outside thinking about the ingredients and flavors of the
slaw dressing when an idea struck me like a bolt of lightning. I thought to
myself, "Self, this could be the base of many barbecue recipes!"

What follows is the extrapolation of that thought.



My epiphany was wondering how many barbecue derivations I could make
using the slaw dressing as the base. At first the goal was to only change
three of the ten ingredients, but that became unworkable. I then expanded
the rule to allow only four changes. I had initially set the goal at ten other
sauces and/or dressings, but in the end I was able to dig up twelve.

To add a little more fun to this experiment I recruited the younger two of
our three daughters -- Shelby and Chloe (the eldest, Hailey, is at church
camp) to do some "kitchen chemistry". I thought that they might enjoy
seeing the morphing of flavors with just a few changes. I was right. They
dug it down to their shoes and said, "Daddy, can we do this again? It was
fun!" That's about all a foodie daddy needs to hear to make his week.

Here's what we came up with:

Base Recipe
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Distilled vinegar
1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp Celery salt
1/2 tsp Ground mustard (powder)
1/2 tsp Ground white pepper
1 tsp Granulated onion
1 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
Juice of 1 lemon (approximately 2 Tbsp)

Creamy Slaw Dressing
1 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp Lemon juice
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp Celery salt
1 tsp Granulated onion
1 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Ground mustard
1/2 tsp White pepper

Mustard Slaw Dressing
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Yellow mustard
1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp Lemon juice
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp Celery salt
1 tsp Granulated onion
1 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Ground mustard
1/2 tsp White pepper

Asian Slaw Dressing
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Pineapple juice
1/4 Apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp Soy sauce
2 tsp Sesame oil
2 tsp Celery salt
1 tsp Granulated onion
1 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Ground mustard
1/2 tsp White pepper

Eastern Carolina-style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Distilled vinegar
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp Hot sauce
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp Celery salt
1 tsp Granulated onion
1 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Ground mustard
1/2 tsp White pepper

Western Carolina-style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Distilled vinegar
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp Ketchup
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp Celery salt
1 tsp Granulated onion
1 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Ground mustard
1/2 tsp White pepper

South Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce
1 cup Distilled vinegar
1/2 cup Yellow mustard
1/4 cup Dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp Ketchup
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/4 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/8 tsp Ground mustard
1/8 tsp White pepper

Memphis-style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Molasses
2 Tbsp Yellow mustard
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/4 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/8 tsp Ground mustard
1/8 tsp White pepper

Kansas City-style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Dark brown sugar
1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp Honey
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/4 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/8 tsp Ground mustard
1/8 tsp White pepper

Texas-style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Cocktail sauce
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp Chili powder
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/4 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/8 tsp Ground mustard
1/8 tsp White pepper

Asian-style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Hoisin sauce
1/2 cup Pineapple juice
1/4 cup Rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp Minced garlic
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/4 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/8 tsp Ground mustard
1/8 tsp White pepper

Island-style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Pineapple juice
1/2 cup Dark brown sugar
1/4 cup Guava nectar
2 Tbsp Hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/4 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/8 tsp Ground mustard
1/8 tsp White pepper

BBQ Mop Sauce
1 cup Apple juice
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Canola oil
2 Tbsp Molasses
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/4 tsp Granulated onion
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/8 tsp Ground mustard
1/8 tsp White pepper

Method
Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

The idea here isn't to give you the be-all-end-all recipe for each style of
sauce or dressing, but, rather, to demonstrate how a simple base recipe
can be the starting point and/or inspiration for a completely different
recipe.

Recipe adaptation is your friend!

Note: The ingredient amounts you see in the picture were scaled-down
for experimentation.

...... And I don't even really like slaw...... How those Kiwi knives holding up?..... I'm about ready to order a couple more & throw the old ones away..... Love em, but they are really sensitive to anything that touches them.

Thanks. As for the Kiwi's, my original set is still going very strong. I just hit
them with the steel in between uses, and touch them up occasionally with a
sharpener.

Perhaps you're just a little too hard on the Beav.

Thank you John and Bill.

We had guests last Sunday and were out of slaw dressing.
Wife hit Google and whipped up a quick dressing which was better than the bottled stuff you get at the store.
I will print this out for next time we need it.

Wow, Thanks again for another fine post. I don't think I will ever have to search for another sauce recipe again. It's already interesting comparing the different amounts of an ingredient used in different recipes i.e 1 Cup vs. 2 Tbsp.

Since Bill aka Smokin Aussie took the time to create a PDF, I thought I might add the same in MS Word format and also as a simple Text .txt format for easy editing if you choose to do so.

Holy COW! Nice list, can't wait to try a few of these asap. Wife doesn't like mayo-based slaw so some nice alternatives.

Thanks for saving us all that work!
