Default Slaw on pulled pork ?!?! WHAT??????

Ok folks, I've eaten countless pounds of pulled pork (and love it), but the thought of putting slaw on top of it, is worse that the thought of.....{insert your worst culinary nightmare here}....

But....I'm game.

If I've learned nothing else, the wonderful ideas I've discovered on this excellent forum are ideas that I need to try. Without question.
So....I'm ready to make some slaw for the top of my PP.

So, if you'd be so kind, please tell this "slaw noob" the finer points of making that famous topping for a pulled pork sammie.

Thanks all!

I've got to admit I've never had slaw on PP. I really don't even like slaw.

I was hesitant as well, but I love it now.

I make mine with a cup of mayo, a 1/4 cup of sugar, and a 1/4 of apple cider vinegar. Add shredded cabbage/carrots until you get the consistency you like. Sometimes I back off on the sugar a bit.

It's a North Carolina thing. PP tastes just as good (read better) without the cabbage on top. Makle your sammies however you like. AFAIC there's not right or wrong when it comes to PP.

If you order a BBQ sandwich down here in NC, you will get chopped pork with slaw on it. "Eastern Carolina style" is creamy while "Lexington style" is a bit spicy with BBQ sauce in the cabbage. Occasionally, you can find a yellow slaw that has mustard in it.

I make a ripoff KFC brand of coleslaw for the most part. Has my own twists in it, but it's basically a creamy slaw with finely chopped cabbage. I also LOVE carrots in my slaw, a lot of carrots in comparison to what most people put in theirs. I find the sweet, creamy slaw compliments the tangy mustard finishing sauce I use for pulled pork.

I'm the only one in my family that eats it this way though. Coleslaw and pickles. The rest of my boys, along with my wife, only do pickles.

I prefer a slightly vinegary twang to the slaw. Goes great with pork.

Coleslaw on PP sandwiches is the bee's knees.

Get the all ready shreaded slaw mix (saves time that way and just as good) Mayo,S&P, Sugar. I like a little celery salt too but not mandatory. Vinegar is fine but I leave it out because the bbq sauce I use is a vinegar based one so no need for more twang. Taste and adjust til you get it right. After you try it you'll probably never eat another pp sammie with out it!

FINELY shredded cabbage, grated carrot with the juice squeezed out, super thin julienned red onion, poppy seed vinigarette, a splash of cider vinegar and a scoop of sour cream. Mix it together and keep it on the saucy side. Good on any Sammich, especially pulled pork!
