I am a certified, card-carrying member of the Coleslaw Addicts Club, also known as the CAC. Ok, I made that up. But if there was such a club I’d be in it and I’d probably be it’s president. Because I can eat any kind of slaw, any time, any where. I almost always order slaw when eating out. Now, true, I’m not sure if coal miner’s ate a lot of slaw, but if their slaw was anything like this from Tub’s Fine Chili (sadly now closed) they probably did. Buttermilk and vinegar do make this one wonderful slaw. Different than your normal creamy slaw. And different than your normal vinegar slaw. It’s like having the best of both in one.
This recipe for Tub’s coal miner’s slaw might make a bit more dressing than you want. That wasn’t the case for me, but I don’t mind a nice ‘wet’ slaw. I’d say add some of the dressing and see what you think. It’s a lot easier to add more later than it is to take it out.
Whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, cider vinegar, vinegar, vegetable oil and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the salt, pepper, celery seed, onion powder and granulated garlic. Whisk until well combined.
Slowly start adding the dressing to the slaw, stirring as you go. Stop when the slaw is the desired consistency. I used all of the dressing, you might not. Reserve any unused dressing for later use.
Refrigerate slaw for at least 1 hour before serving.
Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
What could be better than roasted potatoes packed with wonderful ranch flavor and covered in cheese? Yeah, nothing. These cheesy ranch potatoes were made on the Char-Broil Big Easy in no time flat. The Big Easy is a great side-making machine. And it doesn’t heat up the house, which is sure great these days because it’s HOT here in Indiana!
You can fit a single disposable pan (for 3/4 pounds of potatoes) in the basket that comes with your Big Easy. Get a bunk bed basket and you can do a full 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes at once. You have to get a bunk bed for your Char-Broil Big Easy to make great side dishes like these cheesy ranch potatoes.
Fire up your Big Easy. Meanwhile, prepare the potatoes.
Place the potatoes into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 3 minutes on high. Stir and check for doneness. Microwave another 2 minutes (or longer if needed) until just tender. Do not over-cook, they need to have a little bite to them.
Drizzle the potatoes with the oil.
Sprinkle with the Ranch seasoning and salt and pepper. Stir to coat completely.
Divide the potatoes between two disposable pans and transfer the pans to a Big Easy basket fitted with a Bunk Bed so you can cook both pans at the same time.
Place the basket into the Big Easy and cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes start to turn golden brown around the edges.
Divide the cheese between the two pans and return to the Big Easy to melt, another 3-5 minutes.
Carefully remove the pans from the Big Easy and serve.
I’ve tried a number of times to make great deep-fried crispy potato chips at home. And sometimes they were good, and sometimes they weren’t. Something was missing from my technique, my approach. And I’ve found it: vinegar. Soaking the potatoes in vinegar helps them get nice and crispy, and that’s our goal in life when making chips.
I season my homemade crispy potato chips with seasoned salt instead of ‘just’ kosher salt. You can use anything you like. Fresh ground black pepper is great too. Take a gander at your spice cabinet and you’ll likely find something else that would also be great on chips. Just don’t use anything that is real coarse. You want a fine texture to your seasoning.
