Brisket with Kasha and Bowties

Brisket Will Improve Your Life

In The Brisket Book: A Love Story with Recipes, author Stephanie Pierson writes, “Some foods will improve your meal, your mood, your day, your buttered noodles. Brisket will improve your life.” Brisket has been a standard at my mom’s house for Jewish holidays. And most good barbecue joints also have a tasty brisket. These are on different ends of the brisket spectrum, but both have a tender, savory, irresistible quality in common. Having just had my mom’s brisket this week at lunch on the first day of  Rosh Hashana, I thought it would be a good idea to have a look at brisket recipes that ReciFoto users have shared, starting of course, with my mom’s! I’ve made her recipe a bunch of times and it is always delicious, but it never comes out as good as hers.

You may be asking yourself, what is brisket? According to Wikipedia: “Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal. The beef brisket is one of the nine beef primal cuts, though the precise definition of the cut differs internationally.” So, brisket is what you make of it.
