Old City Barbeque

A New Take On An Old Favorite

Fried Green Tomatoes

Green Tomatoes cut 1/3" thick


Neutral frying oil, like Canola, at 350*


1 Cup Flour

1 Cup Cornmeal

1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt 

1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Onion Powder

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon your favorite bbq rub

Heat oil to 350*.  Mix breading ingredients thoroughly and set aside in mixing bowl.  Slice tomatoes and soak in buttermilk for 5 minutes.  Bread tomatoes so breading coats entire outside.  Drop in oil one at a time and cook for 3-4 minutes or until breading is a golden brown.  Drain on a plate with a paper towel to soak up the excess oil.  Add a pinch of salt to finish when tomatoes come out of oil.  

At Old City we serve the tomatoes with our smoked pimento cheese, bacon roasted red onion jam, sorghum reduction and scallions to create a diverse but balanced set of flavors while letting the tomatoes shine.  Typically a good dipping sauce like a remoulade or comeback sauce works great.  You could also try something like a black pepper or spicy buttermilk dipping sauce, whatever your preference is.  They are great on burgers and sandwiches and have a lot of applications making them a delicious and versatile palate pleaser.
