The meal was simple – slow-cooked beef brisket.
After ten hours in a crock pot filled with spices and marinade, the brisket was so soft a toddler could pull it into strips. The beef was juicy, flavorful and completely just dissolved in your mouth – phenomenal .
Now I would have enjoyed the meat a la carte, but a toasted bun is a perfect complement for the meaty goodness. The bread soaks up the juices so that every bite has both meat and sauciness. It also replaces the need to soil a fork
However, I had to use a fork anyway for the side dishes. Sean made an avocado/corn relish and Jenn made a salad from the produce we got at the farmer’s market. Both were good accompaniments to the main course because they were crisp and refreshing balancing out the richness of the beef.
A dinner party would not complete without a few bottles of quality wine. I don’t remember what I was consuming but I do know it went down smooth and I had multiple glasses. Maybe that’s why I can’t remember.
After that amazing meal, I am hooked and I want more. Hopefully, Sean will get another urge to braise his brisket relatively soon.
Strength and Honor,
