Rich & Smokey Slow Cooked Beef Brisket - thermomix recipe
Winter is the perfect time for slow cooking! And here’s a perfect free recipe for celebrating the chillier weather — a deliciously rich and smokey slow cooked beef brisket. Whilst living in the United States I found brisket to be a staple on restaurant menus and in supermarkets, but it seems to be a phantom cut of meat here in Australia (found only in corned beef) – which is so surprising as it is so delicious! It does take 6 hours to cook, but it is well worth the wait. Any leftovers that haven’t been frozen for next week’s dinner make a great filling for sandwiches, adding some variety to lunchtime.
