Red BBQ Slaw

Growing up in the foothills of North Carolina and enjoying Eastern North Carolina BBQ, we always had barbecue slaw or red slaw served with our pulled pork. The spicy, crunchy texture of the marinated cabbage takes BBQ to the next level. Serve with pork or chicken.

Original recipe makes 8 servings


4 cups finely shredded cabbage
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
2 dashes hot pepper sauce, or to taste
