Looking for a versatile cut of meat that can be slow-cooked to perfection? Look no further than a flavourful cut of beef brisket.
Famously cooked on Texas fire pits and Louisiana barbeques, brisket is the cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef. It’s a tough cut of meat loaded with connective tissues, but with proper care and attention (and a bit of slow cooking), brisket becomes juicy, tender and absolutely irresistible.
The is only one way to cook brisket
There is only one way to cook brisket, and that is slowly. If you rush cooking your brisket or take it out of the oven too soon, it will be tough and chewy. Because brisket is a tough cut of beef, you need to cook it long enough for the connective tissues to break down.
Although it can only really be cooked slowly, brisket is still hugely versatile. It can be braised, slow-roasted, stewed and even finished off on the grill for ultimate flavour.
How to cook your brisket all year round
For the colder months, braise your brisket in the oven with red wine, onions, and heaps of root vegetables for a comforting and heart-warming dish. During the summer, slow cook your brisket in spices and BBQ sauce, then finish off on the grill to create a mouth-watering, finger-licking meal for your outdoor event.
So, next time you are at the counter and fancy trying something new, go for brisket. You will not be disappointed!
