  1. Looking forward to using this recipe for New Years Eve! Do you add anything to the coleslaw mix? Is there a type of dressing mixed with it?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Rebecca. Although I didn’t add any dressing to the coleslaw mix, feel free to add some dressing to yours. Just whisk together: 1 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, plus salt and pepper to taste. Many wishes for a fun NYE celebration!

  2. I love the look of these – they’ve got character. They look like great party food and would make a fab change from mini burgers. Also, being able to cook the meat in one go in the pressure cooker beats slaving over individual pieces of meat last minute.
