Sweet Coleslaw Recipe

My family loves slaw. When we go out to eat, if coleslaw is an option, we order it. There is nothing like a sweet coleslaw recipe.



Texas Coleslaw

Keeping that my family is a lover of coleslaw recipes, I decided to recreate one of my favorite slaws, cattlemens steak house slaw. This slaw recipe is so unique, that it will be your favorite too.

I had gone to this cattleman’s steakhouse and what I was impressed with was their sweet coleslaw recipe. It was a pineapple coleslaw. This sweet restaurant slaw was so creamy and yummy. What really surprised me about this about this pineapple slaw was there were no onions in it.



Pineapple Slaw

Instead, cattleman’s steakhouse it was a coleslaw recipe with pineapple.  This Texas coleslaw recipe was amazing. I did a little research on the internet and I found a few copycat recipes for coleslaw with pineapple. I combined a few copycat cattleman’s steakhouse slaw recipes together to create this yummy texas coleslaw recipe.

    So true. But Hawaiian parties might be quite popular in Texas. Sort of like Chinese food doesn’t grow in Toronto, but there is plenty of it (some of which on a rare occasion actually resembles Chinese food in China).

    That is very true, Toronto is full of Chinese food! The steakhouse in Texas that has made Pineapple slaw famous.

    A little bit of fruit in a slaw works wonders. This sounds lovely.

    I have never had pineapple in any type of slaw. What an interesting idea. I can see how it would add some sweetness and texture. Sounds perfect for the grilling season that is FINALLY here.

    Isn’t it funny looking back at the early pictures? I have to do the same thing you are doing, especially with a few that are hideous! I love this sound of this slaw. Have your tried it with onion too? I imagine red onion would be good in it.

    Nice, slaw & pineapple is a great combo. Good work on the video as well, I’ve yet to try that out, but would like to dive in and learn at some point.

    I made this recipe for a family cookout. It was a huge hit!
    My hubby had eaten the pineapple coleslaw at Cattleman’s raved about it. He said the coleslaw made using this recipe was better than the restaurant version. He doesn’t normally eat coleslaw but he said he would eat it anytime I make it using this recipe.
    I made this the day prior to the cookout and it was really creamy and absolutely perfect.

    I used cream instead of milk because I’m bad! I ended up not adding the pineapple because the slaw is SO PERFECT and I think it will hold up better for just my husband and myself. When I make it for company I will follow your directions exactly and add the pineapple. I used Heinz Real Mayonaisse. Thank you for this recipe. Best slaw dressing ever. It is mild and delicious like the Cattleman’s.

    Hi Deanna, any reason why I couldn’t use full-fat milk?

      I just always use 2%, but I don’t see why you could not use it!
