Best Laid Plans

I had planned to share a recipe with you today for Kohlrabi Coleslaw but the slaw I made yesterday just didn't turn out worthy of sharing. I think a slaw should have a tang & this one was a bit too dull for my taste, despite the celery salt & pepper. I have another head of kohlrabi so this is something I'll be working on.
Chile Rubbed Pork Chop with Kohlrabi Slaw
Two things I can tell you though...
1. Kohlrabi is really good. It has a flavor of cabbage but perhaps a little sweeter. We also really liked its texture, which was a lot like a carrot. I can't imagine it would go limp in a slaw very quickly. I can see making it a staple in our summer slaws.
2. We used the Fragrant Chile Rub leftover from the Bean Butt Chicken on boneless pork chops last night & it was wonderful. I think this could become my go to rub. Its spicy enough to make Matt happy but not so spicy that I can't eat & enjoy it (I'm a wimp when it comes to spicy food).

I've never had kohlrabi either. I saw it at Whole Foods the day before yesterday and it looked like it had cuts all over it. It was the color of a purple beet and had some nice greens on top. I remembered your post about it and I was going to get it, but I decided to wait to see how it turned out for you. I think I'll wait some more lol

I'll have to look out for kohlrabi and give it a try. The pork chops look perfect!

I made something similar. The dressing had cream, lemon juice, mustard and a little sugar, and I grated an apple along with the kohlrabi & carrots. It was nice & light-tasting, not dull at all!
