At Stiles Switch BBQ and Brew in Austin, TX, flavorful, elevated side dishes are a big time differentiator. This coleslaw is a perennial favorite because of its fresh, zippy taste and unbeatable crunch factor. The addition of cooked onions and their cooking oil while still hot helps everything meld together, and provide another dimension of flavor.
