Center Cut Brisket

craigcep Sep 1, 2013 05:40 PM


I bought center cut brisket a few months ago. It's been "aging" in the freezer for a while. We're putting it in the fridge tonight to defrost and then we plan on eating it Wednesday night.

Anyone have the best recipes for using center cut brisket? I'm open to roasting or grilling or any other technique.

Thanks and Shanah tovah!

    I will be making mine in a large tightly covered roasting pan full of tzimmes. Nice and sweet for the new year.

      I am smoking one. Putting it up very early Wednesday morning. When braising in the oven I cover it with Montreal Seasoning and cook it dry for about an hour at 400 then add some beef bullion and cover it and let it go at about 300 for another 4 hours.

        brisket tends to go very dry - unless you're going to smoke it or bbq it i'd braise it in a sweet and sour or red wine-beef broth mixture

          Shana Tovah to you and everyone as well.

          I wouldnt be doing any roasting or grilling with briskets I buy. Low and slow is the way to go. BBQ or braised would be my choices.

          For the holidays I would go wet. After a summer of bbq brisket its a pleasant change.

            Thanks for the response. Got a not-too-complicated recipe you can suggest?
