Beef Brisket – A slow cooked meal to warm the heart!

One of the best ways to reduce time spent each night in the kitchen is to prepare a bunch on your weekends. And one of the best ways to do this is with slow-cooked meats, like this Beef Brisket! Considering there’s only about 1kg of meat you’ll quickly see just how economical this really is. It just goes so far. 

Because it’s the last week of winter, I wanted to give you some tasty, hearty options. You can use this as a base in my Shepherd’s Pie, or as part of a salad at lunch. Paired with a hot mustard and my grain free bread, you could make a killer toastie. 

Any way you have it, it’ll quickly become one of your family’s favourites too! Tip: Always reserve the cooking liquid. It’s full of nutrients and flavour, and can be used through out the week to make your sauces, stocks, and gravies!
