1 1/2 teaspoons
Asian chile pepper sauce (such as sambal oelek)
salt to taste

cabbage - quartered and thinly sliced
fresh peaches, pitted and chopped
thinly sliced fresh chives
thinly sliced fresh chives for garnish
I like where this recipe was taking me but not where it ended up. I used Sriracha and was a little worried that a whole tablespoon would be too much spice, so I started with a teaspoon. Not enough. Two. Too much for us. Not overpowering, but wanted it a little gentler. It was good, but different like that. I did end up adding more sugar to make up for the extra spice. I like the premise of this recipe and I will make a version of it again. I liked the extra sweetness that I got when I added the extra sugar and did like some of the bite of the Sriracha, but I should stick with 1 teaspoon next time.
I want to start off by saying that we have always loved Chef John's recipes, rating them all 5 stars, but we did not like this one at all. We had 5 adults that ate it and only one said that it was O.K. It was WAY to acidic for us so we added extra sugar which made it better but still not good. I will not be making this again but will continue to try other Chef John recipes as they are normally amazing.
This recipe sounded really good to me. I have a mango coleslaw recipe we love, but this one really lacked the wow factor. I ended up adding a bit more siracha and vinegar, but something was still missing
Just made this for a bar-b-q....It was a huge hit...
Something different than the usual cole slaw. I also
added toasted sliced almonds on top for taste and
contrast. It was quick and very easy.
This was awesome! I used a pepper jelly and didn't add the cayenne pepper because I didn't have those items. But, it turned out delicious anyway. The BF loved it. Next time, I'll try it as written. Thanks!
This was a great recipe. I was a little nervous to bring it to a BBQ last weekend from the reviews I read. Pulled Pork was being served by the host, and I brought the slaw. This was so tasty! I made it exactly like it said. However I used my Ninja to blend the dressing and to cut the cabbage up. The peaches were very sweet against the slaw. The spices were very mild but that worked well because the pork was spicy and the slaw kind of had a slow burn to it. It says it makes 6 servings, well there were 12 people at the BBQ and I had enough for grilling out the next evening for another 4 people. Everyone commented on how much they liked it and asked for the recipe. WIN for allrecipes and a WIN for me!
Fabulous flavor, a new family favorite! Make a generous amount; I might make 1/2 recipe next time.
The sweetness of the peach contrasts nicely with the hot sauce and cayenne, but be cautious with how much you use (as other reviewers have noted). Ridiculous as it may be, I had 4 different kinds of hot sauces/chili pastes in the fridge, tasted each, and went with the mildest. Even then, I didn't use the amount specified, and we're probably middle of the road on spiciness. As we all know, you always can add more, but you can't take it out. And this is not a criticism of the recipe because spiciness is subjective, so each person should adjust to his/her own liking. This was a nice change from the same old-same old style of coleslaw.
