Beef brisket recipes

Looking for some beef brisket recipes? You've come to the right place. Brisket is one of the tougher cuts of beef you'll come across – as a result it tends to favour slow-cooking, but it's packed full of incredible flavour if you have the time to dedicate to it.

That said, it is surprisingly versatile, especially compared to other slow-cook cuts of beef like shin and chuck. You can braise brisket in a traditional way, as Alyn Williams does in his Maple brined and braised beef brisket with oyster emulsion recipe, but you can also pot-roast it and get a wonderful tender result – check out Food Urchin's Pot-roasted beef brisket for more on that.

There's plenty you can do besides just braising. In Vietnam, beef brisket is sliced super-thin and served raw in a bowl of pho so it gently cooks in the broth, as Thuy Pham displays with her incredible Beef pho recipe. Andy McLeish's Salt beef brisket with capers, gherkins and smoked mayonnaise is lots of work – Andy brines his brisket, then covers in a dry rub and smokes it to create wonderful slabs of tender salt beef.

Finally of course, there's a longstanding tradition of barbecuing brisket in the USA, particularly in Texas which is famous for beef brisket barbecue – check out our recipe for Burnt ends and Barbecue beef brisket for a handy guide to creating your own.
