"Growing up in the foothills of North Carolina and enjoying Eastern North Carolina BBQ, we always had barbecue slaw or red slaw served with our pulled pork. The spicy, crunchy texture of the marinated cabbage takes BBQ to the next level. Serve with pork or chicken."

I love this recipe! I have lived in NC all of my life and have tried many recipes for red BBQ slaw and this is by far the best one. Just make sure you break up the red pepper flakes a little. Once I chop the cabbage in the food processor I add the red pepper flakes and pulse a couple of times. Great recipe Robin!
Yuk....just doesn't do it for me
Yay! Carolina bbq slaw. Like you put on the bbq sandwiches back home in North Carolina!! Very close to home!~
Exactly the recipe I was searching for! I used a little cayenne pepper and a little of the red pepper flakes. It is really better if you can let it marinate overnight. Thanks for the recipe Robin!
Growing up in Shelby NC, BBQ was a way traditional Christmas dinner. My grandma always made BBQ with all the fixing's. To me, its just not BBQ with out the red slaw. It does seem like an odd combination of flavors but we LOVE it!! It is better if allowed to sit awhile, flavors meld together for a better taste. I have used, store bought, barbecue sauce instead of ketchup, seems to give it kind of a smoke flavor depending on the variety of sauce used.
Great recipe. I just came from Lexington, NC, last week, and this recipe tastes just like the slaw that they serve at Speedy's. I added a little bit more sugar, cause I like my sauce sweeter, but the recipe is a winner!
Love this recipe, thank you. Super red slaw, worderful with BBQ and great with fish too!!
This is a great vinegar based slaw! I did it exactly as the recipe stated.
