There’s something about an aromatic brisket cooking for hours and warming up the house on a cold winter day. Maybe it’s the joy that it brings to my tastebuds when it’s all done!
Here’s a very simple Recipe from Epicurious.com. I also add cubed yellow potatoes and sweet potatoes (just a few each) so that it becomes a one pot meal. Even my 14-month old loves it! Note that if you buy a large brisket (the one I made today was about 3.5 lbs), it can take up to 5 hours to cook. Brisket should be very soft when it is cooked so that it pulls apart easily with a fork and even shreds (for example, if you want to make a pulled beef sandwich). Make sure that when you take it out, it has a good browning on it — even burnt ends make it extra delicious! Yum.
