Pot Roasted Beef Brisket with Vegetables

Beef Brisket

Had a lovely walk out to the Dundas butchers  at Breaston , its a tiny little  shop but we got a gorgeous piece of beef brisket . We also picked up some haggis for Burns night tommorrow night .

Beef Brisket

Brisket  is a rolled piece from the breast of the cow , its a fatty cut of meat and we all know fat adds flavour . I have never cooked brisket, but the butcher was resassuring that a slow cook with plenty of vegetables works best .  He was right we had  melt in the mouth sweet beef delicious vegetables and a tasty glossy gravy . A delicious  winter dish.

I might add beer next time, replacing half the stock,  to add more depth of flavour but the beef-stock worked pretty well
