In Oklahoma, we have BBQ on a regular basis and it is a staple for a 4th of July event here. I was planning on having a simple outdoor get together for our family this year, but the weather has been so rainy! Since there is no guarantee that the 4th of July will be sunny this year… I brought our All American BBQ Party indoors!
One of the shortcuts I took to make a great BBQ party is making Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ Pulled Beef Brisket instead of grilling meat. I found it in the freezer section of my local supermarket and was excited to try it out! The Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ is slow cooked for hours, hand pulled, simple, clean ingredients and made in America. I was impressed by the flavor of the meat and sauce. It’s exactly the way that we like it… sweet, smoky and tangy!
The Farm Rich Smokehouse pulled beef brisket made delicious beef brisket sandwiches! We topped our sandwiches with a delicious creamy corn coleslaw!
This creamy corn coleslaw is simple to make and has a sweet, creamy and tangy taste that tastes perfect alongside or on top of the Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ Beef Brisket!
Creamy Corn Coleslaw
- 1- 10 to 12 oz. bag of your favorite coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 3 Tbsp . Salad Vinegar
- 1 Tbsp . sugar
- 1 Tbsp . yellow prepared mustard
- 1/4 cup sweet yellow corn
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Serve chilled.
Other shortcuts I like to take when throwing a party are decoration shortcuts. For this party I bought several jars and filled them up with colorful faux flowers. I also found a string of lights that were pre-made with red white and blue cups! So cute! I am sure that you could DIY these lights easily too. I think the decor really looked great and the American flags were a perfect final touch!
I love that this party didn’t take a lot of prep work and I was able to spend more time with my family instead of in the kitchen. We had authentic BBQ that was made in minutes and made my job a whole lot easier this year! What are some easy shortcuts you like to take when planning a party? I’d love to hear your ideas!
