I am braising brisket right now. In fact, this is the third 5lb piece of beef brisket entering my kitchen over the last ten days. No doubt this is another fine example of me overdoing things that I like (see my last entry on holiday cookies). Brisket #1 was gladly devoured by me and my friends at my Winter Solstice Party. I had merely one small slice of leftover. When the house was cleaned and back to its normal state, the feeling at home was unanimous: we needed more brisket. So off to the market I went to procure Brisket #2.
The first two briskets were prepared using the same Braised Brisket & Onions recipe from Slow Cooker Revolution. It was savoury, beefy, and melt-in-your-mouth tender. We ate it plain, we ate it between slices of challah, and we dipped the brisket sandwich in bowls of jus like a French dip sandwich. It was marvellous.
