Calling for Menu Suggestions
We have an annual bar b q party each year and I am geting a little tired of the sides that we normally do. The Bar B Q is always traditional South Carolina Smoked Pulled Pork with South Carolina mustard-based sauce. My husband is from Charleston and is on a crusade to bring pork bar b q to Texas.
We normally serve Flay's Grilled Potato, Watercress and Bleu Cheese Salad; Coleslaw; Green beans with a Vinaigrette and Ice Cream with Fresh Fruit for dessert. Traditional accompaniments: warm yeast buns for pork sanwiches, pickles, beer, etc.
My question to the board is: Anybody have any great new ideas or recipes on what to serve this year with The Pig?
I welcome all suggestions and I promise to post the final menu and how it was received.
I have fond memories of creamy tangy cucumber salad whenever we would do a bbq dinner at home - I found this on allrecipes.com, and I believe my Mom's is similar to this, but I recall sour cream instead of mayonnaise
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
4 medium cucumbers, peeled and sliced
Hush Puppies or Corn Fritters?
Whenever I think of Carolina BBQ, I always think of the coleslaw and the hushpuppies. If you don't want to be deep frying, you an make corn fritters ahead of time and reheat in the oven. Sometimes I put a bit of hot pepper jam out to eat with the corn fritters, seems to go over very well.
