Beef Brisket Recipe

When cooking meat, we often assume that the more expensive cuts of meat will always be the most delicious. True, the better the cut, the more easily the meat will become a tender and delicious part of your meal. But, even though these prime meats seem superior don't ignore less-expensive cuts as well. Some have the potential to become just as good as higher-cost meats.

Beef brisket is a cut of meat that comes from the chest area of cattle. This spot holds a lot of connective tissues, and can be quite tough. For this reason, beef brisket is a less-expensive option. Although the idea of tough meat probably does not appeal to you, the right cooking method can produce beef brisket that is soft, tender, and delicious.

The key to cooking great beef brisket is how long and slow you cook it. Ideally, this meat cut should be allowed to cook for a long period of time at a somewhat low temperature, allowing the tough connective tissues to soften for more tender meat.

There are several ways to successfully cook beef brisket, and all create a unique end result. One idea would be to use a large slow cooker. You can place the brisket in the cooker, add sauce or water, and allow to cook for about 10 hours on the low setting. This is a nice, slow way to cook this meat cut, and an easy method if you want your dinner to cook while you are away at work for the day.

Another possible way to make beef brisket is to boil it. With this method, you will need a large pot and water. Put the meat in the pot, cover with water, toss in some spices and seasoning, and let it simmer for 2 or 3 hours. If you like, you can add vegetables to the pot in the last 30 minutes or so, such as carrots, potatoes, or cabbage.

Another method is to roast the meat. Put the brisket in a roasting pan, add some sliced vegetables, and pour some water into the bottom. Let this cook in the over, covered, at 300 degrees for about 5 hours. You can try different variations with the vegetables, and experiment with spices and flavorings to create a unique meal.

Beef brisket can be delicious in many recipes and prepared in various ways. Try making this cut of meat for your next meal and enjoy its amazing taste.
