What To Make With What’s On Sale: Beef Brisket

It’s Friday — time for What To Make With What’s On Sale!  This week at Albertsons, beef brisket is $2.99/lb.

Beef brisket, when cooked correctly, is a moist and fork-tender cut of meat.  The key to preparing a tender brisket is cooking it low and slow.  Here are five recipe ideas for using beef brisket!

The Pioneer Woman’s Beef Brisket recipe calls for marinating and oven-braising the meat in a beef consomme/lemon juice/soy sauce mixture.

Brisket can also be made in a slow cooker.  This Busy Day Barbeque Brisket uses simple ingredients and takes eight to ten hours to cook (based on a 3-pound brisket.)

Here’s another slow cooker recipe with international flair: Slow Cooker Moroccan Brisket with Red Onions and Apricot Couscous.  Many reviewers agree that this recipe is tasty but a tad sweet, so it might be a good idea to reduce the amount of honey and add more at the end if necessary.

If you’re looking for a classic brisket recipe (and you have a smoker), try Bobby Flay’s Texas Brisket.  The meat is coated with mustard and a spicy rub, then smoked for eight to ten hours.

This recipe for Barbecued Beef Brisket Sandwiches is delicious.  It includes Emeril Lagasse’s barbecue sauce recipe, but I’ve used bottled barbecue sauce to save time and it was still great!

Do you have a tried-and-true method for preparing beef brisket?

    I’ve had something like this before that was made with jackfruit from the asian market. Just put it in a crockpot with your favorite BBQ sauce for 4-8 hours and it tastes just like BBQ.

    I use Claude’s Brisket Marinade (Albertson’s carries it) and cooked in a foil pan sealed with foil at 300 degrees for 3-4 hours. OMG delicious smokey meat!
