A trusty beef brisket recipe is a good staple to keep around. What I love about it is that even though it takes a few hours, it’s a relatively low maintenance meal. It makes a good Sunday night dinner for the family or a good addition to a meal prep day being you can do the rest of your prepping for the week while this is cooking.
I always add BBQ sauce to it before I eat it but that’s just my preference. When I meal prep this Paleo beef brisket, I’ll usually separate it out into containers and add Tessemae’s BBQ to it before I stick them in the fridge. That way they’re already ready to go. Another way I eat the leftovers from this is to slice the brisket even thinner (as seen in the picture below) and throw it over a salad. It’s quick and easy on busy days. Plus, it gives me a break from the chicken salads I usually end up with.
When I make this for a big dinner I usually make a hearty, savory side to go with it. I made creamy butter & garlic Brussels sprouts and they were the perfect addition to round out the meal.
