Having made Cook's Illustrated Online's very elaborate brisket (which was great, by the way, despite my skepticism), I am left with some really really tasty gravy. Meat, of course, is all gone.
Any suggestions for what to put it on or on that won't be totally overpowered? Gravy is made up of meat juices and fat plus lots of onions, some red wine, herbs and spices. Really full-flavored --- which is why I'm kind of stuck for a vehicle for it.
Put it on some roast beef sandwiches on crusty bread or a nice baked potato...you could also use it in a beef stew.
Use it as a base for a soup. Add veggies, crushed tomatoes, canellini beans and stock. Simmer. Add some ditallini. Voila! Pasta e fagioli.
My wife would make hash with ground beef, diced potatoes, diced green bell peppers and garlic. Your gravy already has the onions.
I might make risotto with it. That may sound crazy, but I belong to the "What if...?" school of cooking specializing in "Cuisine Impromptu."
YO, I JUST NOTICED THAT THE ORIGINAL QUESTION WAS POSTED A YEAR AGO...2009!
