Yesterday was Southern Day! Okay well at least in our apartment it was. I was cooking Sunday dinner for the apartment plus a couple others. We had BBQ Beef Brisket, cornbread, mashed potatoes, asparagus and peach pie. And when you are cooking southern food, it is practically required to speak in a Southern accent. This continued for at least a couple hours.
This was the first time that I have ever made beef brisket. I got the recipe from my best friend from back home's mother. Whenever they would be having it for Sunday dinner I would magically appear at their house or request a doggie bag.
Well I desire to share this recipe with you all because it is easy and delicious! Sorry I don't have pictures, I didn't think about posting this until after all of it was consumed.
BBQ Beef Brisket
Beef Brisket meat
1 Bottle of Italian Dressing
1 Bottle of BBQ Sauce
The size of the Italian Dressing bottle and BBQ sauce depends on the size of the brisket. I bought a 1.8 lb beef brisket and used a 16 oz. Italian dressing and used about half of a 18 oz. BBQ sauce bottle. So adjust accordingly. (This amount served 5 people)
-Put beef brisket and pour bottle of Italian dressing in crock pot on low overnight.
-Remove brisket from crock pot and separate with forks.
-Put separated brisket in pan on the stove at about medium heat and pour the amount desired of BBQ sauce in.
-Toss the brisket to evenly coat the meat with BBQ sauce, and allow the meat to somewhat caramelize the sauce.
I hope you enjoy it and if you make it tell me what you think!
