Most Saturday mornings I sit with a cup-o-joe and watch cooking shows before my day gets started. Earlier this month one of the show's hosts made a slow cooker brisket. She then used the leftovers to create 2 more meals. Inspired, I have created and tested my own slow cooker brisket and then developed 2 additional recipes that use the leftover brisket in a unique way.
Recipe #1-Brisket, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans
Ingredients: 4-5 lb. brisket, 2 red onions, 4 carrots, 2 bay leaves, 1 Tbs. dijon mustard, 6 oz. tomato paste, 1 Tbs worcestershire sauce, 1 Tbs olive oil, salt and pepper.
Recipe #2- Brisket Quesadilla with Lime-Cilanto Sour Cream
Ingredients: Hunk of leftover brisket, tortillas, taco seasoning, couple handfuls of mozzarella cheese, lime, cilantro, sour cream, and salt.
Recipe #3- BBQ Brisket Sandwich and Blue Cheese Slaw
Ingredients: Your favorite BBQ sauce, leftover brisket, buns
Directions: Mix your favorite BBQ sauce with your brisket and slap it on some buns. That's it.
