Brisket Recipes

Brisket recipes are truly flavorful. Braising is our favorite way to cook brisket -- with red wine, beer, chili, and of course we adore slow cooker brisket. But perhaps the best thing about brisket is that this large piece of meat yields plenty of leftovers. Leftover brisket is never a problem neither are Reuben sandwiches.
