Lexington (North Carolina) style barbecue (pulled pork) served with hushpuppies, baked beans and red slaw (lower right)

Red slaw (sometimes called barbecue slaw) is a condiment commonly served on hot dogs, on barbecue pork sandwiches, as a side dish for other types of barbecue, on hamburgers, or with other foods. It is an essential part of “Lexington style” North Carolina barbecue.

Red slaw is different from traditional coleslaw in that it does not use mayonnaise as an ingredient, allowing it to be stored for longer periods without refrigeration and making it more suitable for outdoor serving. It is made with green cabbage, vinegar, water and ketchup, giving it the characteristic color. In addition to being a staple part of Lexington style barbecue, it is also common in other portions of the Southeastern United States. In these regions, regular cole slaw may be called “white slaw” to differentiate it from red slaw.

Recipes vary widely and may include other ingredients, such as onion, sugar, black pepper, mustard seed and other spices, depending on the region in which it is being served.

In the late 1990s, Wendy’s sold the “Carolina Classic Burger” which was a traditional hamburger with red slaw, onions, chili and American cheese, going so far as to trademark the name.

One of America’s Favorites – Texas Toast

A slice of Texas toast on top of a bagged loaf of bread.

Texas toast is a toasted bread with butter, and often garlic, that is often made from a type of packaged bread that has been sliced at double the average thickness of most sliced breads. The Texas toast loaf itself is often more squarish compared to most sliced breads which have a more curved side and top. While Texas toast bread can be used in the same manner as ordinary bread slices such as in sandwiches, it is especially useful for dishes involving liquids, such as barbecue sauce, or where extra thickness could improve the product, such as French toast. In addition, the often increased thickness of the slices of Texas toast lets it retain moisture and softness better than regular sliced bread. It is usually a white bread although there are whole wheat varieties. Producers of Texas toast in the United States include Franz Bakery, Mrs. Baird’s, and Safeway/Lucerne Foods.

Popular in Texas and its bordering states, Texas toast is often served as a side with southern-style dishes such as chicken fried steak, fried catfish, or BBQ. Texas toast can also be used when making toasted sandwiches.

The actual toast itself is made by putting butter or margarine on both sides of the bread and broiling or grilling it until it is a lightly golden brown. Depending on the recipe, the spread may contain seasonings including garlic, yielding a form of garlic bread. The toast may include cheese on one or both sides, similar to an open-faced grilled cheese sandwich.

The best-selling varieties of Texas toast are frozen breads, sold with a garlic or garlic and cheese spread which is applied immediately after baking. The best selling brands are the New York Brand of the T. Marzetti Company, Pepperidge Farm, and Coles.

Mozzarella and Monterey Jack cheese Texas toasts

Some recipes suggest regular or thick-sliced bread be cooked in a frying pan alongside fried steak, bacon, or other meat product in order to absorb the grease from the meat (cf. fried bread).

One claimant to the invention of Texas toast is Kirby’s Pig Stand. The once-thriving chain, whose heyday in the 1940s saw over 100 locations across the United States, also claims to be the originator of the onion ring. Texas toast may have been first created in 1946 at the Pig Stand in Denton, Texas, after a bakery order for thicker slices of bread resulted in slices too thick for the toaster and a cook, Wiley W. W. Cross, suggested buttering and grilling them as a solution. Another Pig Stand cook in Beaumont, Texas claimed he created the idea of grilling the bread. W.W.W. Cross is also credited for combining the Texas toast with chicken fried steak to create Kirby’s Pig Stand’s famous Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich.

One of America’s Favorites – Burnt Ends

Beef brisket with burnt ends.

Burnt ends are flavorful pieces of meat cut from the “point” half of a smoked brisket. When brisket muscles are separated, the lean “first cut” or “flat cut” is the deep pectoral, while the fattier “point”, also known as the “second cut”, “fat end”, or “triangular cut”, is the superficial pectoral. A traditional part of Kansas City barbecue, burnt ends are considered a delicacy in barbecue cooking. Either the entire brisket is cooked whole, then the point end removed and cooked further, or the point and flat are separated prior to cooking. Due to the higher fat content of the brisket point, it takes longer to fully cook to tender and render out fat and collagen. This longer cooking gave rise to the name “burnt ends”. Sometimes when the flat is done, the point is returned to the smoker for further cooking. Some cooks re-season the point at this time.

Kansas City style burnt ends are usually served chopped with sauce either on top or on the side. A “proper” burnt end should display a modest amount of “bark” or char on at least one side. Burnt ends can be served alone (sometimes smothered in barbecue sauce) or in sandwiches, as well as in a variety of other dishes, including baked beans and French fries.

Kansas City native Calvin Trillin is often credited with popularizing burnt ends. In a 1972 article he wrote for Playboy about Arthur Bryant’s restaurant in Kansas City, he wrote: “The main course at Bryant’s, as far as I’m concerned, is something that is given away free – the burned edges of the brisket. The counterman just pushes them over to the side and anyone who wants them helps himself. I dream of those burned edges. Sometimes, when I’m in some awful, overpriced restaurant in some strange town, trying to choke down some three-dollar hamburger that tastes like a burned sponge, a blank look comes over me: I have just realized that at that very moment, someone in Kansas City is being given those burned edges for free.”

Healthy BBQ and Grilled Chicken Recipes
Find healthy, delicious BBQ and grilled chicken recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Butterflied Grilled Chicken with a Chile-Lime Rub
A quick and efficient way to cook a whole bird on the grill is to butterfly, or “spatchcock” it. When cooking a whole chicken on the grill, try searing the chicken first over direct heat then finish cooking over indirect heat (as instructed in this recipe). That way you avoid the all too common problem when grilling–chicken burned on the outside and raw in the center. For best flavor, let the chicken marinate in the rub overnight in the refrigerator. Serve with lime wedges and fresh salsa…………………………

Spice-Rubbed Grilled Whole Chicken
Crispy skin, tender meat and charred skin make for a delicious dinner main. Plus, the blend of paprika, cumin and cinnamon match deliciously with the chicken. You can eat this grilled chicken as-is–perhaps with a side of grilled vegetables and roasted potatoes–or shred it and put it in a salad……………………………

Grilled Chicken Wings with Carrots and Celery
These grilled chicken wings get that wonderful mix of sweet and spicy flavors from honey and harissa. Most grills cook unevenly, so it’s important to keep these wings moving around to ensure crispy skin without burning. Traditional chicken wing sides–carrots and celery–cook right alongside the chicken for a quick dinner on the grill…………………………….

Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw………………………….

Today’s Menu: Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this day off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 95 degrees and sunny out today, and the humidity was terrible! Not a good day to be outside working so, I cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the sweeper. For Dinner tonight I prepared Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I love Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork with BBQ Sauce. Montgomery Inn is one of the original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest BBQ food anywhere! They also sell their Ribs and Pulled Pork and Chicken at all Kroger. So when it’s Pulled Pork I almost always use the Montgomery Inn brand. Anyway you just heat it in a medium sauce pan until it’s warmed and you have BBQ. It’s the perfect combination of the Pork and the mouth watering Montgomery Inn Sauce that makes this so delicious! Plus it’s only 110 calories and 8 carbs per serving. I served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun.

 

I also baked up some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. Served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

BBQ Shrimp with Garlicky Kale and Parmesan-Herb Couscous

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast it was Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar/Jack Cheese. Just love this skillet meal! Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and 65 degrees out, and very windy. I no longer go to the grocery stores unless it’s to pick up an order. I also order online and have it delivered. Cleaning Supplies, Ground, Beef, and Paper products are still very tough to find any where. So it’s make the best out of what you have, thank goodness for full freezers! Tonight its Mom’s favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs so that’s what we are having tonight. I purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday. Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.
