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 this 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.
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!
