This slaw is one of my very favorite accompaniments to a big old juicy hamburger, especially a Mouthwatering Meatloaf Burger like I posted yesterday! It’s simple to make and compliments beef really well.
I ‘m really excited to get to speak to an elementary school today so I’m gonna dive right in here with the recipe to allow myself more time later to get my ducks in a row before heading out. Hope y’all have a wonderful day!
You’ll need: White vinegar, cole slaw mix, sugar, and Season All.
Yup that’s all. I know we see these long drawn out recipes all over the place so sometimes when we happen upon an easy on we stand there like a deer in headlights for a minute.
Can it be that easy?
But….but…it appears to be written in English! There are no words I have to look up in order to understand this!
I don’t have to take off work a half day to make this? How could I possibly enjoy it then!
Calm down. Relax. Get off the gussied up recipe freeway.
Good food doesn’t have to be complicated and complicated food isn’t always good anyway.
If it makes you feel better, you can shred the cabbage and carrots yourself instead of buying this bag (you overachiever, you!). Just get a small head of cabbage and about 2 carrots (whatever size you grab first) and shred those puppies up.
Pour sugar into vinegar.
Stir that up a minute or so or until you’re tired of fooling with it.
Most folks would say until your sugar is dissolved but we’re gonna pour this over our cabbage and let it marinate for a bit and the sugar can dissolve just fine during that process without needing me to babysit it
Add Season All…
…which has no MSG. Not that I, personally, have a vendetta against MSG but I know a lot of folks do and suspicions would be raised in the comments about whether or not this was evil.
I don’t get on the food is bad bandwagons because, in my line of work, I have entire wagon trains of various and assorted bandwagons coming by every single day and if I took up every cause I’d end up huddled in a corner wearing a straight jacket and starving to death.
Having said that, I am a big respecter of personal convictions. I just keep the majority of my own convictions personal
Stir that up. Again just until you’re tired of fooling with it.
Put your coleslaw mix in a big old bowl and pour our vinegar mixture over it.
Stir it really good until it is all coated.
Put a lid on this and place it in the fridge for about half an hour (or more if you need to)
During that time it will wilt down significantly and become filled with even more wondrous yumminess.
Use to top your favorite burger – I especially love it on these Mouthwatering Meatloaf Burgers that I posted yesterday.
Now go make it a GREAT day!
Falling in love is not a choice. To stay in love is.
