Meat and Cabbage Bowl
- Cooking and Prep: 3 h 20 m
- Serves: 16
Sweet and Sour Sauce
Prepare the Filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Make the sauce: Place all the sauce ingredients in a medium-sized pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and allow to simmer for five minutes.
Place the coleslaw mix in a roasting pan. Cut each piece of meat into three pieces and place on top of the cabbage. Pour the sauce on top. Cover the pan tightly and bake for two to three hours or until the meat is very soft.
Remove the meat from the pan and shred it, using a fork. Put the meat back into the pan and mix.
Heat mini baguettes according to package directions. Cut each baguette in half to create a pocket (do not slice all the way through). If you want to, remove some of the bread from inside the baguette to get a deeper cavity.
Place baguette on a plate. Fill with meat mixture and serve immediately.
