  • 4 cups cabbage - grated or chopped small in food processor
  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black ground pepper
  • 1 Tbs Sriracha Sauce


  • Shred the cabbage with the grater or food processor and set aside.
  • Mix the ketchup, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and Sriracha together in a small bowl.
  • Pour the mixed ingredients over the cabbage and mix well. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir well before serving (slaw tends to separate and the juices run out. Just mix it up again and it will be fine). Serve on your BBQ sandwich or as a side item. Awesome with hushpuppies.
