There’s no law about slaw
Well, I was smoking a pork shoulder for our guests and as usual I was going to make the standard coleslaw to go with it, when out of nowhere, Pepé le Chef jumped out and said, “NO, NO SHERIE… Is your head made of a cabbage? Step outside the bowl and make something new. Make something colorful, sweet and bit spicy. You don’t want to bore your friends to death.” I said, “okay, okay! First, my name is not Sherie… (Seriously how does he not know this already?) Secondly, take it down a notch short stuff or I’ll kick your little wooden butt to the curb.” We put our heads together and came up with this Jicama Mango Slaw. It’s great as a side dish or as you will see in the next post, we used it and the smoked pulled pork for some pretty damn fine pulled pork street tacos.
Pepé was sleeping on the job. Luckily it was so easy, I didn’t need his help anyway.
