  • I liked this one as well, however I stopped at 4 slices of thick-cut bacon. Plenty of bacon"ness" for me. 8 slices would be overkill for us. I highly recommend stopping at 4 slices, evaluating and assessing if you need more bacon or not. 

    Otherwise, simple, fresh, and delicious! :)
  • Mama's Slaw by Myron Mixon (The Winningest Man in Barbecue) 2 small heads Green Cabbage, coarsely chopped 2 medium Sweet Onions, diced 2 ripe Tomatoes, diced 3 cups Mayonnaise Kosher Salt, to taste Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste Basic Barbecue Rub (below), optional In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, salt & pepper. Toss thoroughly. (You can prepare this up to 6 hours in advance and store it, covered, in the refrigerator. But if you do, do not add the salt until you're ready to serve the slaw, and too it again just before serving; otherwise the slaw become watery.) Garnish with basic barbecue rub, if desired.
  • A simple slaw is just what I need with pulled pork. Love it on pulled pork tacos:

    One cabbage, diced fine
    3/4 cup mayo
    2tbs red wine vinegar.

    I have lightly modded a recipe which I believe originated in a Jack Daniels cookbook (also on Naked Whiz site's pulled pork page).  It is known as "Mary Lee's" I fought the slaw and the slaw won....

    Mary Lee's I Fought the Slaw and the Slaw Won
    3 lbs Cabbage
    4 ribs Celery
    1 medium onion
    2 small green bell peppers
    4 Carrots grated
    1 Cup Sugar
    Shred cabbage. Chop celery, onion, pepper and carrots, Sprinkle, then mix in sugar.
    1 cup apple cider vinegar
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon celery seed
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    Bring vinegar, oil, celery seed and salt to a boil.  Pour over cabbage mixture, chill overnight.  Serves 12.

    Everyone seems to love this... I cut ML's sugar in half and added a bit more veggie to it.

    Radamo's post above from Elder Wards pulled pork page on the Nakedwhiz site is my favorite also. In fact, I made it last night for consumption with my PP today.

  • +1 on the Mary Lee recipe from Naked Whiz site, I use that one for pulled pork.  Also nice no mayo so it travels and holds up well.
