Beef brisket, sourced from the breast area of a cow, is a tough cut of beef that, with enough care and attention, can yield fantastic flavour and texture. One of the more inexpensive cuts, it contains less fat and more connective tissues than other cuts, meaning the meat should be cooked correctly for optimal tenderness.
With that in mind, it’s important to understand how to cook brisket to get the very best results…
There are quite a few winning ways to cook beef brisket, but there’s one method that stands head and shoulders above the rest; the slow roast. Allowing this cut of beef to cook over a long period of time ensures that the meat will turn out mouth-wateringly tender. It’s a slow roast that’s most certainly worth the wait.
In the same vein, braising also works well with beef brisket. Simply sear the meat in a frying pan over a medium to high heat, remembering to season well with salt and pepper. Once completely seared, you can begin the process of slow roasting alongside any number of ingredients. It works well alongside carrots, onions and celery, and is complemented well by thyme, bay leaf, rosemary and parsley. For added succulence, red wine works a treat.
Brisket can also be put to great use in casseroles, provided you stick to the general rule of long, slow cooking to gently tenderise the meat.
