Coleslaw (also known as cole slaw or simply slaw) is a salad consisting primarily of finely shredded raw cabbage and dressed most commonly with a vinaigrette salad dressing. Prepared in this manner, coleslaw can be pickled for up to four weeks if it is stored in an airtight container. Another way to make coleslaw is to use foods that already contain vinaigrette: mayonnaise, for example, is commonly used.
Coleslaw is frequently served as a side dish in traditional meals in many countries, and can be seen in major fast food chains as well.
There are many variations of the recipe, which include the addition of other ingredients such as red cabbage, pepper, shredded carrots, onion, grated cheese, pineapple, or apple, mixed with a salad dressing such as mayonnaise or cream. A variety of seasonings, such as celery seed, may be added. The cabbage may come in finely minced pieces, shredded strips, or small squares. Other slaw variants include broccoli slaw, which uses shredded raw broccoli in place of the cabbage. Cream, sour cream, or buttermilk are also popular additions. Buttermilk coleslaw is most commonly found in the southern United States.
In the United States, coleslaw often contains buttermilk, mayonnaise or mayonnaise substitutes, and carrot, although many regional variations exist, and recipes incorporating prepared mustard or vinegar without the dairy and mayonnaise are also common. Barbecue slaw, also known as red slaw, is made using ketchup and vinegar rather than mayonnaise. It is an essential part of “Lexington style” North Carolina barbecue.
Coleslaw is generally eaten as a side dish with foods such as fried chicken and barbecued meats and may be accompanied by French fries or potato salad as another side dish. It also may be used as a sandwich ingredient, being placed on barbecue sandwiches, hamburgers, and hot dogs along with chili and hot mustard. A vinegar-based coleslaw is the signature ingredient to a Primanti Brothers sandwich. Coleslaw also is used on a variant of the Reuben sandwich, with coleslaw substituting for the sauerkraut; the sandwich is commonly called a Rachel to differentiate it from the Reuben.
According to The Joy of Cooking (1997), raw cabbage is the only entirely consistent ingredient in coleslaw; the type of cabbage, dressing, and added ingredients vary widely. Vinaigrette, mayonnaise, and sour cream based dressings are all listed; bacon, carrots, bell peppers, pineapple, pickles, onions, and herbs are specifically mentioned as possible added ingredients.

The Polish Boy is a sausage sandwich native to Cleveland, Ohio. It consists of a link of kielbasa placed in a bun, and covered with a layer of french fries, a layer of barbecue sauce or hot sauce, and a layer of coleslaw. While the sausage is typically grilled, some establishments will quickly deep fry the sausage after grilling and prior to assembling the sandwich. While Polish Boys can be found at various establishments throughout Cleveland, a popular place is Freddie’s Southern Style Rib House, known for their southern style barbecue sauce. Esquire named theirs as one of the best sandwiches in America, calling it “soul on white.”
Chef Michael Symon cited the Polish Boy as “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” on the Food Network, where he featured
Seti’s Polish Boys on the show. Seti’s version is unique because of optional chilli and cheese that can be added to your sandwich.
Polishboy sandwich consist only of a beef polish sausage, french fries, coleslaw and barbecue sauce on a bun. Polishboys can be found in most if not all of Cleveland soulfood restaurants. Chilli, cheese peppers and sauerkraut are not ingredients found on a Polishboy. Chef Gregby Camp from “Mickey Flickey’s Amazing Wings” appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to teach the audience how to make a Cleveland Polish boy. Chef Camp suggests toasting the bun to give it better flavor and to hold the sandwich together. His sandwich features just enough coleslaw to taste, homemade french fries and their Amazing Comeback Barbecue Sauce.
Hot Sauce Williams, a restaurant on Cleveland’s East Side, features a variation that includes the addition of smoked and barbecued pork shoulder to the sandwich and was featured in June 2010 on the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food. Host and food enthusiast Adam Richman tried their Polish boy, which featured the restaurant’s signature hot-sauce. Since the airing of the episode, Hot-Sauce Williams changed the type of french fries used in the sandwich and removed the pork shoulder from its components. B&M Barbecue, a Cleveland BBQ chain, calls this variant of the Polish Boy with pork shoulder a “Polish Girl”.

Coleslaw, sometimes simply called slaw in some American dialects, is a salad consisting primarily of shredded raw cabbage, which is dressed
with mayonnaise and/or buttermilk in some variations and dressed with vinegar and seasoning (without any dairy or mayonnaise) in other, lighter variations. Cream or sour cream may by used as the dressing and vinegar may be added. It may also include shredded carrots as well as other fruits and vegetables such as apples, onions, radishes, and peppers. Horseradish, seeds, and various spices may be included.
The term “coleslaw” arose in the eighteenth century as an Anglicisation of the Dutch term “koolsla”, a shortening of “koolsalade”, which means “cabbage salad”.
There are many variations of the recipe which include the addition of other ingredients, such as red cabbage, pepper, onion, grated cheese,
pineapple, or apple, mixed with a salad dressing such as mayonnaise or cream. In the United States coleslaw often also contains buttermilk or mayonnaise substitutes, and carrot; although many regional variations exist, and recipes incorporating prepared mustard or vinegar without the dairy and mayonnaise are also common. Barbecue slaw, also known as red slaw and commonly found in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, is made using ketchup and vinegar rather than mayonnaise. A variety of seasonings, such as celery seed, may be added. The cabbage may come in finely minced pieces, shredded strips, or small squares.
In the United Kingdom, coleslaw almost always contains carrot and onion in addition to cabbage. Some variations include nuts such as walnuts and dried fruits such as sultanas or raisins.
Coleslaw is generally eaten as a side dish with foods such as fried chicken and barbecued meats, and may be accompanied by French fries or potato salad as another side dish. It is commonly included in fish fries in the United States. It also may be used as a sandwich ingredient, being placed on barbecue sandwiches, hamburgers, and hot dogs along with chili and hot mustard. A vinegar-based coleslaw is the signature ingredient to a Primanti Brothers sandwich. Coleslaw also is used on a variant of the Reuben sandwich, with coleslaw substituting for the sauerkraut, the meat being either pastrami or corned beef, and the sandwich commonly is called a “Rachel” to differentiate it from the “Reuben”.
A variation of coleslaw made with vinegar and oil is often served with pizza in Sweden.
Coleslaw added with cooked ham slices and sliced pepper (julienne cut), in Italy is called “Insalata Capricciosa” (capricious salad).
Other slaw variants include broccoli slaw, which uses shredded raw broccoli in place of the cabbage.

Tried 2 new recipes for dinner tonight and everyone was glad I did! I prepared Sweet and Spicy Pork and Sandwich w/ Cheesy Potato Casserole. First time I prepared either and they turned out great, 2 new keeper recipes!
The Sweet and Spicy Pork Sandwich recipe came from a Bobby Deen recipe. His had the sandwich topped with Cole Slaw but I’m not a fan of Cole Slaw so I omitted that. You start with a 3 lb. Pork Tenderloin, the one I used was 2 3/4 lb. The rub for the Tenderloin is made up of 2 teaspoons smoked paprika, 2 teaspoons black pepper, 2 teaspoons sea salt, 2 teaspoons roasted cumin, 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar (Splenda), and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper. So as you can tell from the rub you have one delicious Tenderloin on the way!
Sprinkle the dry rub all over the pork tenderloin and place in a resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and then bring to room temperature before cooking. Cut each tenderloin into 2 or 3 large pieces. Heat the oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven. Sear the pork on all sides in batches (you don’t want to overcrowd the pan), 4 to 5 minutes. Cover with the apple juice, vinegar, BBQ sauce, garlic and ginger. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, and then cover and simmer for 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Transfer the pork to a clean cutting board and shred using 2 forks. Place the shredded pork back into the pot and continue to cook over medium-low heat, uncovered, just to heat through, 10 minutes longer. Serve on hamburger buns topped with BBQ sauce and slaw with mustard and pickles, if desired. With the combination of all the Spices added with the Apple Juice it gives the Pork a perfect Sweet and Spicy taste.
Then for a side dish it was another new recipe from Ore – Ida, Cheesy Potato Casserole. Another keeper recipe! You’ll need 1 bag Ore-Ida® Country Style Hash Browns, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 2 cup Reduced Fat Sour Cream, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 2 cup 2% cheddar cheese shredded, 1/3 cup green onions sliced, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, 2 cup corn flakes crushed, and 1/4 cup butter, melted (I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter). I reduced the calories and carbs by using Reduced Fat Sour Cream, 2% shredded cheese and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. The casserole was delicious! Another Gladys Approved Recipe (my Mom). The Hash Browns with all the ingredients and then topped with the Corn Flakes giving it great crunch, makes one fine casserole. Making the 2 recipes is a bit time-consuming but well worth the time and effort. Three of us ate and were left with a lot of good leftovers. I’m going to freeze some of the casserole and see how it does and also some of the pulled pork. Fantastic Dinner tonight! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
I’ve left the original recipes and web links to both recipes below. When you check the pulled pork recipe check out the web site to Bobby Deen and the Cooking Channel, loaded with recipes!
