Braised beef brisket on a pizza?

I’m not always entirely sure what to do with left overs. But I do feel freer to experiment. Left over braised beef brisket and carrots, simple, throw them on a pizza. It tasted really good. The brisket was great on the pizza and the carrots added a bit of sweetness. 

Try a Persimmon, now!

I had my first Sharon Fruit or Persimmon. I spotted them in an Italian deli and asked what they were. What a revelation. They’re so damn sweet. So so delicious. They the feel of a tomato but the taste is amazing. Get some, get some quick!

Fab beef brisket and great value 😀🐄

Beef brisket, amazing! 

I was looking for a slightly cheaper ‘cook-it-low-and-slow’ joint of meat for a family party. I came across a recipe by Nigel Slater for braised beef brisket. 

First you roast the brisket for 25 mins, and then stew it for 4 hours in a broth with porcini mushrooms, carrots, shallots, black pepper corns, thyme and bay leaves. 

Remove the beef and reduce the broth. Slice the brisket and cover in the reduced broth. 

It was absolutely delicious. So succulent and melt in the mouth. The broth had a great earthy meaty umami taste. 

I had it with some roast potatoes, steamed green vegetables and the carrots and shallots cooked with the brisket. 

I’m definitely going to do this again. 😀🐄
