I’d like to say that I have a clear winner between this brisket and the last one I tried. But I’ve got to say, I don’t have one. I think it depends a bit on time. I think the first one I did was simpler upfront, although there was more chopping simply because you roast vegetables with it (which is a perk). This brisket is hands off once it is in the oven, which is handy, although it still roasts for a long time so you need to be home for much of the day. But maybe the clear winner is just dinner, since I didn’t realize how much I like beef brisket until recently.
My birthday is always interesting as an adult/mom/wife. I enjoy cooking, so it can be fun making food for my own birthday. But, I also don’t want anything that would be exhausting or boring. So, this past birthday I was flipping through my cookbooks and came across this recipe. I’d never made anything with brisket before, but wanted to try. It seemed so easy but seemed potentially good. I consulted with my dad and M since they had cooked brisket before. The recipe was a bit different from what they’ve done before but they said it sounded like it could work.
And it did!
