Enjoyed in many parts of the United States, beef brisket can be cooked in a variety of ways. No matter how you serve it, making sure it’s seasoned and properly cooked can make or break your brisket meal.
What is Brisket?
Cut from the lower pectoral area of a cow, brisket can be tough because it’s an area that has a lot of muscle development. Don’t let that stop you; slow cooking a brisket helps break down that tough meat creating a cut so tender, you’re able to cut a slice with a fork or easily tear with your hands.
Used throughout many cultures, brisket makes an appearance in pastrami, corned beef and cabbage, pho, barbeque, and in casserole dishes. Another great way to enjoy a beef brisket is smoked. The Rational iCombi Pro makes perfectly smoking your brisket as simple as the touch of a few buttons.
