Southern Barbecue Beef Recipe

Creamy deli coleslaw is the secret condiment Andrea Johnson uses to top her zesty barbecue sandwiches. “It boosts the nutrition and adds a delightful crunch,” explains the creative Freeport, Illinois cook.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 2 kaiser rolls, split
  • 1/2 cup creamy deli coleslaw


  • 1. In a nonstick skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink; drain.

"I have made this MANY times; I sometimes double it to have leftovers. However, my hubby and I don't really care for the coleslaw on top--the meaty filling is great alone!"
