Summer Brisket

Summer Brisket

 Beef Brisket  is a cut from the breast of the animal usually rolled and tied. Marbled with fat,  it is best suited to slow casserole cooking and so I have always counted as a winter joint for the depth of winter with carrots and onions.

So I was surprised when Nick said he had picked  up a Brisket joint from the butchers and curious how it could be converted into a dish more suited to the summer weather.  Luckily we are getting some summery vegetables in the vegebox, using fresh red peppers and tomatoes to the usual slow gave a sauce bursting with sunshine with no addition of water or stock. Next time I might add some butter or cannellini beans which might require the addition of water but this was delicious with some boiled new potatoes.
