Mexican Beef Brisket Tacos
Make every day a taco day! Mexican tacos are one of the most popular go-to foods for everyone. This dish is loaded with savory and smoked flavors that will definitely satisfy your Mexican food cravings. To make this tasty dish, you need to start by marinating the beef brisket with spices and leaving it overnight. The next day, cook it in a slow cooker. If you don’t have a slow cooker, don’t worry because you can cook it in the oven. All you have to do is preheat it to 315 degrees until you can shred it with two forks. Once done cooking, you can add your favorite toppings like sour cream, cheese, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro to complete the meal.
Roasting is a great way to get that smoky flavor without having to invest in a smoker. All you have to do is preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, place the brisket on a roasting pan with some carrots and onions, pour beef broth over the top of everything, cover with tin foil, and roast for 3-4 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 200-205 degrees Fahrenheit. Serve hot over mashed potatoes or rice—so good.
Braising involves cooking the fresh meat in liquid over low heat for an extended period of time—it’s perfect if you want tender meat that just falls apart when touched. To braise beef brisket, simply season it with salt and pepper before browning it in oil over medium heat on both sides (about 10 minutes total). Add in some carrots, celery, onions, garlic cloves, bay leaves, thyme sprigs and enough stock or broth so that it covers half of the meat (about 2 cups). Bring mixture to boil before transferring everything into a Dutch oven (or slow cooker). Cook on low heat for 4-6 hours or until tender; add more broth as needed during cooking time if liquid evaporates too quickly. Serve over egg noodles or mashed potatoes—yum.
Barbecue Beef Brisket Sandwiches
Who doesn’t love barbecue? For this recipe all you need is 1 1/2 pounds of trimmed brisket rubbed with your favorite dry rub seasoning mix; some store-bought barbecue sauce; buns; and coleslaw (optional). Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit; place seasoned brisket on baking sheet; cover tightly with tin foil; bake for about 2 1/2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 185-190 degrees Fahrenheit; remove from oven and let cool slightly before slicing against grain into thin strips; warm up some barbecue sauce in a saucepan over low heat then add sliced brisket strips; serve on buns topped with coleslaw if desired—a delicious sandwich sure to please any crowd.
