I found this copycat recipe in a file — it’s supposed to be a ‘copycat’ of the Pittsburgh restaurant Primanti Brothers cole slaw.
It’s actually pretty close. I’d say cut back on the oil (it’s a bit much) but otherwise, on a sandwich, it DEFINATELY tastes like primanti!
We served it on pulled pork this time — very tasty!
(Sorry, no pictures..we gobbled it up!)
“Primanti Bros” Style Cole Slaw
1 head green cabbage, shredded
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
6 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons oil (don’t use olive oil…the flavor would be too strong)
salt and pepper to taste
– Combine the shredded cabbage and onions in a bowl
– In a pot, dissolve the sugar into the vinegar and oil over low heat; add the salt and pepper and cool completely
– When cool, pour over the cabbage mixture and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving
