Over the last ten years or so I have spent a lot of time in the costume shop at the high school. One of my favorite things about it is the opportunity it gives me to meet some of the other moms of my children’s friends.
It never fails, when moms get together, the conversation always makes it around to…
“So what are you having for dinner?”
I love to ask that question. I have gotten a lot of great new recipes by asking it.
Today’s recipe is one that I got that way! One day my friend Cindy mentioned she needed to get home to finish up dinner. I of course had to ask – “So what are you having for dinner?”
She described to me a quick, easy and yummy brisket!
Since Tessa and I are off to Texas next week for a family wedding and my parent’s 50th anniversary party I thought it was very appropriate to share a brisket recipe! What is more Texan than brisket? I hope to eat some great brisket while I am there.
I have said before I am not a huge fan of meat cooked in a crock-pot but I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe.
This dish is so simple you really don’t need a recipe!
So here it goes:
Place your brisket in the crock-pot – mine was probably 3-4 lbs. Actually I don’t really remember….
Squirt mustard over the top – I used a Spicy Brown Mustard but Cindy used just regular old yellow mustard. I just squiggled it over the top
Mix one package of Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix with one cup of water and pour over brisket
Cook on low for 8 hours!
It is great served with mashed potatoes (or so my family tells me as I don’t eat them – texture issues!)
Per Cindy’s recommendation I shredded up the left over brisket the next night and added some barbecue sauce to make sandwiches. That was until I smelled it and realized my barbecue sauce had expired two years ago! Yuck! It went in the garbage and we had pancakes for dinner!
Tip: Always read the expiration dates on your bottles BEFORE you add the contents to food!!
