Asian Slaw Recipe

Asian Slaw

Cabbage is almost free this time of year. I saw cabbage for 33 cents a pound this week so I picked one up. I was thinking about that amazing sandwich I had at Ocotillo in Phoenix. It was a brisket sandwich topped with Asian Slaw and maybe a gochujang mixed with kewpie mayo on the bread….It was so FORKING delicious! Brisket was also recently on sale for only $1.99 a lb. so I have brisket. This slaw is very close to the taste of the slaw I had at Ocotillo so I’m set. WooHoo ┬áthis brisket sandwich with this slaw and gochujang mixed with kewpie mayo spread on the bread does taste just like the delicious sandwich I had at Ocotillo.

Ingredients for 10 servings

1 head cabbage (sliced very thin…use fresh do not use bagged)

1 Tablespoon kosher salt

1 Tablespoon sugar

1 carrot – shredded very thin

8 oz radish – shredded very thin

2 .. .14oz-.18oz pack roasted seaweed – sliced very thin and cut across in half

1 Tablespoon garlic (around 7 cloves) ground to paste

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

1 Tablespoon fresh ginger – grated

1/2 teaspoon ginger (dry spice)

1/2 cup rice wine vinegar (scant)

2 Tablespoon sesame oil

1 Tablespoon ponzu

1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 Tablespoon toasted black sesame seeds

1 Tablespoon toasted white sesame seeds

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/4 cup scallions – sliced thin


In a large bowl add cabbage salt and sugar. Mix well. Let sit one hour on counter. After one hour there will be a lot of liquid from the cabbage. Drain the cabbage water.

Mix in all the remaining ingredients.

I’d serve the next day because the flavors do mellow and marry.

Asian Slaw

I suggest to make a spread of Kewpie brand Mayo (it taste different than regular mayonnaise) mixed with a little sriracha and enough gochujang to look like the color of Russian Dressing. It’s FORKING delicious you will love it. The spread combined with this Asian Slaw on a sandwich is epic!
