Halal Barbecued Beef Sandwiches (Iftar in a Crock Pot)

Okay, I've got to tell you that we served these halal sandwiches for up to about 30 people last night for iftar. It was my every intention to get a pic, but after salat my mind went straight into serving mode. However, considering the fact that there wasnt one sandwhich left I'd have to say they were extra yummy! I got a half of a sandwhich and had to act fast in order to get that.

This sandwhich was adapted from a book called Art of the Slow Cooker By Andrew Schloss. We added our halal flair to the recipe and it proved to be a hit. Alhumdulillah!

3 pounds of halal roast beef (doesn't need to be exact)
2-3 Tbsp Beef Rub Seasoning (recipe to follow)
1 cup of Barbeque Sauce, homemade or purchased (make sure it has no corn syrup)

Halal Beef Seasoning
1 Tbsp sea salt
2 Tbsp paprika
1/4 rapadura or succanot (all-natural sugars)
1 tsp Hot Cayyene Pepper (African is Hot)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Mix and store


Season the beef with the spice rub and add to crock pot. Cook beef on low. When the beef produces a lot of juice, about 4 hours into the cooking, drain off ALLthe juice and add the barbecue sauce in with the beef. Allow beef to cook for approximatly 7-8 hours, or until beef is very tender and easily pulls apart.
Place barbecued beef on whole wheat buns or bread of choice with fixings of choice and enjoy!
Ramadan Kareem!

*This recipe serves 6. We had to adjust it to serve a crowd.
