Make this gourmet cooking recipe for your next picnic, outdoor barbecue, or tailgate party. Cooked for long hours in a crock pot until they become so tender they almost melt in the mouth, beef brisket is seasoned with tomato sauce, molasses, cider vinegar, dark brown sugar, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chili powder, red onions, garlic, salt and pepper to make an unforgettable dish. Served in sandwich rolls, these spicy and saucy pulled beef barbecue will be the talk of the party. These are especially wonderful served with beer or soft drinks.
Brisket is one of the least tender cuts of beef but cooking it slowly in the crock-pot turns this though cut of meat into tender mouthwatering barbecue that is simply irresistible. With the proper cooking method, you can turn this inexpensive cut of meat into something luxurious that will be the hit of any feast. One of the best things about the beef brisket is that it has tremendous flavor and is typically boneless. It is cut from the lower chest or breast of the beef or veal, behind the foreshank. It contains connective muscle tissues or collagen, which is what makes it tough compared to other cuts. These connective tissues need to be broken down to tenderize the meat. This is achieved through long and slow cooking. Beef brisket is a long piece of meat that is typically cut in half and sold in the market either as a flat cut or a point cut. The flat cut is leaner and healthier but the point cut has better flavor because of its extra fat.
Sweet and tangy, beef brisket barbecue is full of flavor and dripping with sauce so it can be a bit messy to eat. The mess is all part of the fun of eating this as a sandwich. Serve this with some French fries or potato chips for a real party treat.
you say it's cooked in crock pot but also say to cook uncovered...?? I've never cooked anything in crock pot that is uncovered...is this correct?
