Last time I placed an order for grass-fed beef (for the BEST grass-fed beef you’ve ever tasted, order from Little Creek Ranch!), I found a brisket in my box! I had not ordered brisket, so I took a look at the invoice. I saw a note from Ronnie (he owns Little Creek, and I think he’s fantastic!)… it said “See what you can do with brisket!”
I really appreciated the free hunk of meat AND the challenge… Thanks Ronnie!
After looking through some cookbooks, and hunting through some online recipes, I decided to try Smoky Brisket Without The Smoker from Paleo Comfort Foods. The picture looked tender and amazing, and the instructions were pretty simple.
Without giving away the entire recipe (you should buy the cookbook – it’s worth $1,000, if not more!), it involves lots of garlic, cayenne, coconut aminos, liquid smoke, brewed coffee, beef stock, and MORE! You cover it tightly with aluminum foil, and bake for over 4 hours at 250 degrees.
When we removed it from the oven, our house was smelling AMAZING, and the meat was so tender that it fell apart when we stabbed it with a fork. We did not have the jalepenos for which the recipe called, but we didn’t need them! In fact, I might use 1/2 the cayenne next time… it was spicy and smokey and juicy! We ate over half of the hunk for dinner, and my husband devoured the rest of it for lunch the following day. He absolutely loved it.
I served the sliced brisket with the onions from the baking dish, and sautéed some rainbow chard and mushrooms as a side dish.
We loved our dinner, and I will TOTALLY be ordering more brisket when we place our next beef order from Little Creek!
