This is a kind of hot slaw we like to have with barbecue. It’s a bit like a cross between braised cabbage and the flavor of a wilted salad with all the goodness of coleslaw.

Being a warm slaw, it is perfect for wintertime grilling/smoking or if you do BBQ in the oven or crock pot. This has a nice crunchy texture, although not quite as crisp as regular coleslaw. Sometimes I see this served and it can be a bit watery but I like mine more dry.

Less drip + More flavor= I am sure you will love it!
