Sometimes patience does indeed pay, especially in the case of this unctuous slab of smoky beef brisket. Once the tender meat has gently roasted, all that’s needed is the crunch of some tangy quick pickles and a few soft brioche buns.
Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 3 hrs 30 mins, plus resting
This worked brilliantly and tasted great. As did the pickles. Everyone loved it. My tip would be to not use the fan in the oven - I have found to my cost that however well you seal the pan the meat tends to dry out . Fortunately I had learned this from a disastrous slow cooked lamb leg (expensive mistake!!) and did not make the same mistake with this. The buns are great dipped in any remaining cooking liquor before loading up with thinly sliced brisket, pickles and mustard. A real hit with my son for his lock down 18th birthday with garden fireworks.
Delicious recipe. Ended up cooking the brisket in the slow cooker for 8 hours instead and that came out amazingly. Just fell apart and was super juicy. Pickles were perfect with it. We added some Monterey Jack cheese to the buns too. Docking one star because the auto-add shopping list has a nice white wine rather than the needed white wine vinegar!
