This past weekend my brother-in-law Travis, who went to culinary school, made this sandwich. It would have never occurred to me to combine coleslaw with pulled beef to make a sandwich. The combination is surprisingly delicious.
For the pulled beef, use your favorite recipe. I altered this one (which uses the pulled beef for tacos). Travis' had a slightly sweet taste, which seemed like orange zest. He likes to play Mr. Mysterious, so he wouldn't tell me exactly what was in it. I say to him what my mom jokingly said in a recent text: "Guatever." (She's from Guatemala. ;) Travis also made the coleslaw. I had some leftover to use for this sandwich, but next time I make this sandwich, I will likely be using store-bought coleslaw from the deli. I'm all for saving time. (We're not all chefs, ya know? ;)
To make the sandwich, I toasted the sesame seed french roll with olive oil. After toasting it, I layered the pulled beef with the coleslaw.
Sweet, tangy, crunchy, and savory. What's not to like? ;)
