Slammin' some Beef Sandwiches with Dead Rappers

The Meal: Shredded Beefwhich with Gangsta Slaw
The Soundtrack: Dead Rappers Playlist
The Drink: Sailor Jerry's

Last weekend while I was out camping, the topic came up about dead rappers.  There are a lot of good rappers with punched tickets.  Apparently it's a tough business.  At least it was, back when to be a rapper with any cred, you truly were a gangsta and lived the life.  Bullet holes, heart attacks, HIV, even if you managed to live through the 90's it appears that the high living seems to have caught up with a bunch of them.
So I put together a play list with some of the best starting with my personal favourite: Big Pun.  At over 500lbs, his heart just couldn't support his 'crushing' lifestyle, even though he wasn't a playa.  Biggie, Pac, Eazy-E, Nate Dogg, Jam Master Jay and new addition MCA are some of the highlights.
Last week, the playlist wasn't a big hit at 2am when the crowd desperately wanted more pop dance tunes, but tonight it was fully appreciated by all!
Sweet Sailor Jerrys

Another fine note for the evening, Sailor Jerry's Spiced rum was on sale at Coop today.  Couldn't turn that down and what a delicious drink that makes!

I did eventually eat tonight too, although as you can tell from the post, it was quite late.

Spice Rub

Shredded Beef Ingredients:
4.5lb Roast
3 Cloves garlic, crushed
Chopped Veggies
2 Tsp Paprika
2 Tsp Garlic powder
Dried parsley
1 Tsp Ground black pepper
2 Tsp Chili powder
2 Tsp Cayenne pepper
1/2 Tsp Mustard powder
1/2 Dried tarragon
1 Bottle Beer
Worcestershire sauce
1 Onion
1 Red pepper
2 Jalapenos
Beef roast with Rub
 So the recipe I got from this website with a few of my own modifications. All of the spices get blended together in a bowl and then rubbed onto the roast.  The onion, red pepper, and jalapenos get chopped.  The beef goes into the slow cooker with the spices, the diced go veggies on top and then the pot gets filled up with beer.  The beer didn't quite cover the roast so I added some cola to make sure the whole thing cooked for the 10 hours I left it on low.

Once the meat was cooked, I took out the roast and shredded it with 2 forks.  If its properly cooked, it should just fall apart with ease.  The liquid seemed far too runny, so I boiled it down on the stove and then added it to the beef.

Coleslaw Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Miracle Whip
1/3 Cup Sugar
3 Tbls Oil
1 Tbls Vinegar
1/2 Tsp Poppy Seeds

Mix it all together and then add to a selection of cabbage and carrots.  Chill before serving.There's really nothing gangsta about it, but it made for a more eye catching title.

The Beefwich is exactly as it looks.  Bun, beef, slaw, bun. Delicious!!
