Frailty-Q Sliders and Slaw
By the Chef Reaper
You will need:
· Access to a copy of Frailty(Netflix, Pirate. One you own, stolen, whatever…)
· A Crock Pot(Or Baking dish and Aluminum Foil)
· 3-4 pounds of Pork Butt
· 2 small white onions
· 1 large bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (I use Trader Joe’s Kansas Style)
· 1 20 oz bottle of Cherry Pepsi(MUST be Cherry Pepsi)
· 2 Chipotles(optional)
· ¼ head of cabbage
· One large carrot
· 1.5 medium fuji or gala apples
· ½ cup Mayonnaise
· 1 tablespoonBalsamic vinegar
· 1 tsp Salt
· 2 tsp Sugar
· Slider buns(Or full size buns, I won’t judge.)
Thinly slice onion and line bottom of crock pot. Cut pork butt into 1-2 inch cubes, season with S&P. Place seasoned cubes over the onions. Pour 1 cupof BBQ sauce, followed by whole bottle of Cherry Pepsi. Set Crock Pot on low for 8 hours. After 8 hours, drain all liquid from Crock Pot, shred pork, sauce until desired consistency is reached.
Don’t have a crock pot? No problem. Set your oven for 250 degrees, use a baking dish covered tightly in Aluminum Foil for 6 hours.
Slaw: Shred the cabbage, peel the carrot, then make thin slices using the peeler. Using a knife, but the apple into matchsticks. Mix the mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and sugar in a separate bowl. Combine dressing with carrot, apple, and cabbage. Put in a sealed container to allow the flavors to marry for at least one hour.
Dress buns with desired amount of pork, and top with slaw.
Serve with Spiked Sweet Tea, or Lone Star Beer(If you can get it.)
Frailty. AKA Matthew McConaughey’s Good Movie, or Praise the Lord and Pass the Axe.
Bill Paxton can direct? The “Game Over” guy? What the fuck? I heard this story about James Cameron skidding into Paxton’s driveway, saying “You’ve got to see this movie Evil Dead II.” I guess some of Raimi’s genius rubbed off on Paxton. Holy crap, is this one good.
This little tale of Southern Gothic had me from the beginning, evoking small town Texas life in the late 1970s. I particularly enjoyed the Dukes of Hazzard conversation. This was written by Brent Hanley, who also wrote “Family” one of the Masters of Horror episodes (Find this one. One of the Chef’s Favorites) When trying to explain this film to people, I often fall into the trap of ‘Okay, see this one time Randy Beeman…” It’s kind of difficult to do, as the plot is a house of cards. Give anything away, and the plot unravels. It’s kind of a cult film, which I feel is wrong. I want to shout from the mountaintops about this film.“What do you mean you haven’t seen Frailty?” Southern just means BBQ to me, and it doesn’t get much better than this. This is a popular recipe. When traveling through the south you find cola reductions used in food(Glaze a ham with it, seriously.) The south has a lot of culinary traditions and several entire genres unto itself. Seriously folks, get a batch of this going. Call up some friends that haven’t seen it. Make it a good old fashioned barbecue, have some beers. Then put this on and watch minds melt and brains be destroyed. You’ll never see those work gloves out in your shed the same way again.
