bringing you another great recipe from the web :-)
When the weather turns cold like now in January sometimes all you want is comfort food. And if you are like me that means meat and potatoes.
Even Mrs. Wolowitz knows how to make a great brisket. You know Howard’s mother. The Big Bang Theory. If you know anything about briskets, you know they need to be cooked low and slow in order for them to be tender. (Maybe that’s one of the reasons why Howard never left home.) I digress…
This one is easy. All you need is a small 2 pound brisket, rice, beans, and some vegetables. You can even make chili out of the leftovers.
This is my version of a cowboy brisket cooked slowly in my favorite crock pot.
Layer the bottom of the crock with corn and chili beans. then add half a sliced tomato.
slice 1/2 an onion 1/2 a green pepper, and 2 cloves of garlic.
add salt and pepper to one side of the brisket, place it in the crock on top of the vegetavbles. Salt and pepper the other side. add some enchalada sauce, and a can of chili ready diced tomatoes.
Let smimmer on high for 5 hours.
meat should be so tender it falls apart.
serve with rice and beans.
