Found posted on allrecipes.com by Christina J. I've been told this is the closest copycat recipe for Primanti Bro's cole slaw. Fingers crossed. I plan on making it today for a BBQ. Cooking time includes minimum refrigeration time. It was recommended that slaw be refrigerated overnight and served with a slotted spoon to drain excess dressing.
- In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, onion, and 3/4 cup sugar.
- In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, salt, celery seed, 1 teaspoon white sugar, mustard and oil.
- Bring to a boil.
- Cook for 3 minutes.
- Cool completely, then pour over cabbage mixture.
- Toss to coat.
- Refrigerate 8-24 hours for best flavor.
- Toss again prior to serving.
Excellent recipe! I followed the directions exactly as provided and was very pleased with the result. McGelby, thank you for posting a vinegar-based slaw for those of us not particulary fond of mayo-based!
This was delicious. I used fresh cabbage which I grated and 1 grated carrot, other than that I follow the recipe. Next time I will not use the mustard. It gave a yellow tint to the cabbage the next day. i will be making this again. Everyone loved it, even with the yellow tint. Thanks for sharing.
Delicious slaw!!! My grandma always made vinegar-based slaw and I thought this was very close to hers!!! I used a small cabbage and 1 carrot instead of the bagged. I left out the mustard because I was making it for one of my Thanksgiving, 2008 salads and was trying to keep close to my grandma's. I don't think that she put mustard in but all these other ingredients she did. I will add some mustard in to see how that tastes next time!! Thanks for posting!!!
