So the weekend is here and it’s yet again going to be a busy one for me. So it got me to thinking about what to plan for meals. Since I’m planning a wedding and constantly on a budget, but also have a very hungry man at home, I have to find something filling but not too expensive. Plus anything that could produce some leftovers would be good too. So why not beef brisket? I don’t eat a ton of red meat but I know my soon to be husband loves it. Meat and potatoes!
Well thankfully I’ve got the perfect collection of beef brisket recipes to choose from, all sorts of variations. Whether you’re looking for slow cooker (my favorite!) or in the oven, I’m sure you’ll find one of these to your liking. Check out this list of 10 Perfect Beef Brisket Recipes and see if you can find your perfect meal for this weekend.
To wet your appetite a bit here’s a teaser recipe:
Best Beef Brisket
Cooking Time: 3 hours
- 6-8 pound brisket trimmed of fat
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2-3 crushed dry bay leaves
- 1/2 can beer
1. Put brisket in 13″ x 9″ casserole. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour over beef. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
2. Tear off 2 large pieces of heavy duty foil, each larger than the brisket. Fold around the brisket, rolling edges tightly and leaving and opening on 1 edge.
3. Pour the marinade into the opening and roll to seal tightly. Cook on the grill about 3 hours at med-high heat (or in the oven inside at 325 degrees F for 3 hours). Turn the brisket every 30 min or so.
4. Open the pocket and pour off the marinade. Reserve. Sear the brisket on the grill for about 5 min per side at high heat to caramelize the sauce on it.
5. Thicken the marinade with regular BBQ sauce. Slice the brisket thinly and serve with sauce.
