Our monthly meat box contains brisket this month and I've never actually cooked this partic joint. I remember my mum cooking it a few times and it being pretty tough so I reckon slow cooking is the order of the day.
I have a vague notion: some sort of aromatic (spices?) slow cooked (how long?) beef that I could shred and eat in pitta breads (with?)
Or maybe someone has an awesome fail safe recipe that is perfect for brisket...?
Mmmmm - all sound well tasty! Like the idea of having a wee chilli kick, however DS (3) not a fan and whatever I make with this will be a family meal, guess it's just as easy to leave it out. Love the idea of cooking it with horseradish, but feel like that's more of a winter frost-on-the-ground-cold-noses type dish. Will def give that a go at some point though.
I made Sauerbraten at Christmas with a piece of brisket. Its a German dish and uses aromatic flavours like ginger, cinammon and cloves. It marinates for 3 days then cooks slowly to produce a wonderful tender roast. (ask for it boned and rolled from the butcher).

Am also planning to buy another brisket and make salt beef with it. Google The Guardian for lots of great recipes for homemade salt beef
