West: North Carolina Pulled Pork BBQ Nation: The Preservation of a Culinary Art Form Ratings & Reviews (9) 4by Einerson on 2011-07-17 Definitely a different take on slaw. Had it in a SLT class paired with the Lexington Pulled Pork, Eastern North Carolina Sauce and Banana Pudding. When I made it at home my hubby thought it was a touch to high in ketchup! 5by wrenhunter on 2011-07-27 Loved it. I've already made it twice. This will be in permanent summer rotation from now on. 5by DIXIE SNOWMAN on 2011-10-01 This is wonderful and easy. I have made this for a couple of church/public meals with excellent reviews! 1by rnelson on 2012-05-11 An acquired taste I reckon... by Cathyk on 2013-09-07 I love this recipe. I grew up in NC on Lexington Style Slaw and now live in another state. This is perfect with pulled pork - home away from home! 3by HBCOOK on 2014-01-22 Easy recipe but has a real kick. I don't know a 'mild' hot sauce. I bought preshredded green cabbage at TJ's. 4by kgray2 on 2014-02-02 I made it for the first time today for a Super Bowl party/bbq. Even though I live in the heart of Lexington bbq country, I was raised on mayo based slaw at home. This recipe was a good starting point. I substituted a small pinch of crushed red pepper and took out the hot sauce. A little kick is okay, but not too much. I also added a splash more vinegar (total 3/4 c. instead of 1/2 c.) because it tasted too much of ketchup. After mixing with the slaw, I let the slaw chill and set up in the fridge for at least hour. My taste tester husband said I nailed it. He thinks it's better than Stanley's. I will keep this recipe. Thank you. 4by kgray2 on 2014-02-02 Darn auto correct. That is Stamey's BBQ in Greensboro, NC. It is the best in the area! Great place for authentic NC bbq. 4by jpachino on 2014-02-16 Good, but too much ketchup and sugar. I had to add more cabbage and apple cider vinegar to make it just right. For my North Carolina born and bred husband (and my almost 20 years of trips there eating this slaw), it's pretty darn close. Your Comments Please log in to leave a comment. Not a member yet?
