Brisket in the Crock Pot
Yesterday didn't go as I expected, time-wise. I had some errands to run after I dropped son #3 at his driver's ed class. Then, I had an appointment at 11:30, which as it turned out, was 1/2 hour behind schedule. I then got on the phone to ask son #2 to please prepare the brisket and get it in the crock pot for me; it was the planned item for dinner. I'm getting ready to do some "Mom bragging" here...it was the best Corned Beef Brisket that I've ever eaten!
Blake had rinsed the piece of meat off with cold water and seasoned it with salt and pepper. He then wrapped it tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil and put it in a dry oval-shaped crock pot on high for 1/2 hour, and then turned it to low for the rest of the day. It was so moist and tender. He had never fixed a brisket before, so he didn't know to trim the little cap of fat off of it-but I think that added to the flavor! Way to go, Blake! Dinner was a success.
I will be joining these fine swaps today:
