View Full Version : Brisket & Green Tomato Slaw Sandwich

09-14-2009, 09:45 AM
This is hands down the best brisket sandwich I have ever had even if I did make it. The brisket was vacuum sealed and frozen within the last 60 days and reheated by placing in a pot of water and brought to a simmer, turn the eye off then covered and set for 20 min (easy huh). The slaw is oil and vinegar slaw which is becoming my favorite especially for hot dogs and bbq. Ah, but this slaw definitely comes with a unique characteristic. I like red bell pepper this type of slaw and I didnít have any red or even green bell peppers, so I improvised. I added a large jalapeno which I usually do but I seeded it this time and then looking around in the fridge I spotted a smallish green tomato and decided to try it. I sliced it thin and sliced the slices into match stick size. I guess this might be GREEN TOMATO SLAW. Whatever you call it, I know it was dang good. Add a little sauce at the table and some Texas Pete and this sandwich becomes pretty good eats.

Good looking sandwich there, I would hit it. Twice. That green tomato slaw is an interesting idea too. Sort of sounds like chow chow.
