  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 6 cups purchased coleslaw blend
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups water

    Cook noodles to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain; cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, heat bacon drippings in small saucepan over medium heat until hot. Stir in flour until well blended. Cook and stir until mixture boils.

    Pour vinegar mixture over beef and cabbage mixture; mix well. Stir in cooked noodles. Sprinkle with bacon.

  • This recipe's flavorful bacon, vinegar and sugar sauce is similar to the dressing used in hot German potato salad.
  • Purchased coleslaw blend is shredded quite finely. for coarser shredded cabbage, quarter a small head of cabbage and shred it in the food processor. Or use a large sharp knife to slice the cabbage into coarse shreds.
  • Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable containing fiber, vitamin C and beta-carotene, which may reduce the risk of cancer.
