Beef brisket is a very tasty joint and ideal for slow cooking. The brisket is from the breast of the animal and tends to have a milky flavour. The meat will cook beautifully when slow cooked as it will not go dry and hard like the more expensive prime cuts but will be soft, moist and tasty.
TOP TIP: Place brisket in a casserole pot or slow cooker with carrots, potatoes, 2 x clove garlic whole, shallots, barley, large glass red wine, 250 ml of beef stock and cook for 3 hours on a low heat. (Longer in a slow cooker; just put it on low in the morning and when you return home it will be cooked)
