BBQ Pork and Coleslaw Sandwiches

My friend Mindy told me about this recipe a few weeks ago, and I just got around to trying them tonight. We loved them! I never would have thought of putting coleslaw on my sandwich, but it was great. I cooked a pork roast in the crockpot on high one hour, and on low the rest of the day with BBQ sauce (I just dumped a bottle of it in, I don't think it matters how much because you can always put more on your sandwich later.) Alli's coming over in a while to eat one, so we'll see if she agrees!

I love Grandma's coleslaw recipe because it is so juicy and the juice in it is thin.

Grandma’s Famous Coleslaw

4 C. cabbage, finely chopped
1/8 C. carrot, shredded
¼ tsp. salt
1/6 C. sugar
1/8 C. milk
¼ C. mayonnaise
1/8 C. buttermilk
¾ Tbsp white vinegar
1 ¼ Tbsp. lemon juice
1/16 tsp pepper

Combine sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar and juice. Beat until smooth. Add cabbage and carrot. Let flavors blend at least 2 hours. Makes 5 servings.

That looks really yummy. I love using my crockpot. It gives me so much extra time or feels like it does. I'll have to try the slaw recipe.

I tried them...very good! Good job Marsha! Even though I've been really good on Weight Watchers...I was tempted to ruin it all for a second sandwich!

mmm, grandma's colslaw is the only kind I'll eat! I'll have to team it up with your bbq, never tried that. Frank would love it though. When I was prego with Trey an your neighbor in Mesa I made that coleslaw with miracle whip by accident and it didn't set well at all! I haven't liked miracle whip since, funny how being pregnant can do that to you. But I still like that coleslaw made right!
