Tuesday: Beef Brisket

This meal is delicious and you are going to be using the brisket you make for THREE other meals!
I bought a brisket for $12.00, cooked it once, and have made three great meals with it so far. Well worth it.

What you will need:
Beef Brisket
Soy Sauce
Liquid Smoke
Lemon Juice (bottled or fresh)
1 carton of beef broth

What to do:

Step 1: 24 to 48 hours before you want to eat this meal combine the brisket in a large oven dish.
Step 2: In your dish add two cups of soy sauce, the beef broth, squeeze in a 1/4 cup of lemon juice, and a scoop full of garlic. Add two table spoons of liquid smoke. Yummy stuff.

Step 2: Cover with foil and let this all soak in your fridge for 24 to 48 hours. Oh, a good tip from Pioneer Woman is to put the brisket FAT side up.

Brisket must be cooked slow for a long period of time. It is recommended that you cook the meat 40 minutes per pound. Mine took three hours to perfection and let me tell you the entire time we were all salivating!

This time around I served the Brisket with steamed cauliflower and brocolli. We also sliced potatoes really thin and baked them for home made potato chips.
I used the leftover cornbread from last night's pinto beans as the bread for this meal.

Keep all of the leftover brisket. You are going to use it for Cowboy Nachos and you can freeze the rest for some yummy sandwiches on any given day.
