      As a former primanti's employee I can tell you the ingredients (made dozens of buckets full every single Thursday) the ONLY ingredients are: cabbage, white sugar, light veg oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Can't even guesstimate the quantities as it's been a decade and our batches were made in the giant sinks in the back. No carrots no celery products no other spices. The batches were typically mixed / put in buckets and used oldest to newest, best flavor and consistency when a few days old, which is why we only made it once per week :)

      Looks good other than the carrots. There aren't any carrots in any Primanti sandwich. But other than that, recipe looks spot on!
