Brisket is a cut of meat with which I’ve never had a tremendous amount of luck; I’ve never made a transcendent brisket dish, and, frankly, I just don’t know a lot about the cut. The other day I came pretty close to justifying its existence (And cost–Have you heard people say brisket is cheap??? That is so weird.) I made a sweet-savory sauce with half the ingredients in the fridge door and served it over mashed potatoes/parsnips/celery root. It was tasty but nothing to write home about.
