Brisket MUST Be Cooked Slow !
Brisket - cook it SLOW and LONG!! BEST TASTING and EASIEST JOINT IN THE WORLD TO COOK. 5 hours or 8 hours or even 10 hours ! - in the slow cooker on low with a mixed 'Beef and Ale' cook-in mix and it is fantastic! Tender Tasty, and as good a taste of beef as you'll ever get. Chuck in a Casserole Vegetable Bag half way through and it becomes a stew. Potatoes slow soaked in beef gravy, also fantastic!. Frequently disappointed with more expensive cuts fr flavour and they are a pain to cook correctly. Cooked quickly like an expensive cut of beef and Brisket is as tough as old shoe leather or worse!!
Tough as old boots
I was very disappointed with this brisket. I used it in a stew and it was tough as old boots, luckily I had bought another brisket from morrisons for back up, that was tasty and fell apart. Don't waste your money.
I bought this piece of brisket to cook as a Sunday roast.I cooked it for the required time, on a slow temperature but the end result was very disappointing. The meat was dry and the gravy tasteless? I have cooked this joint before without a problem so I don’t know why this particular piece of beef was different?
Leave Well Alone
Terrible quality, cooked in slow cooker. Meat so tough unable/impossibe to eat, threw it all in the bin. Not much fat on it, unusual for brisket!
Best cut of meat,makes superb gravy.
Quality good,but brisket needs to be cooked slowly on number five,then it is fa
Best beef i have ever tasted.
I'm not a great fan of red meat generally but I was sick of eating chicken so I bought this product for sunday dinner, it was absolutely lovely. My whole family commented on how nice it was, I cooked it for the exact time stated on the packaging and it was perfect. I prefer it carved wafer thin and next time I will get a bigger one as it would be lovely for sandwiches for lunch in the week. It reminded me of sunday dinners at my grandparents in the 70's when meat used to taste like meat. I bought another one for this week mmmmm. I hope its still for sale at Christmas time.
Excellent for Sunday Roast. Slow cooked 3hrs. Love
Excellent for Sunday Roast. Slow cooked 3hrs. Lovely flavour and melted in the mouth. Great value.Made 6 good portions from smaller joint.
This is the second beef brisket joint that I've purchased from Tesco. The first was excellent; this one was of abysmal quality. The first one was lean, with little fat; this one was at least 50% fat but cleverly rolled to hide it. By the time I'd trimmed a 900g joint, I was left with just under 450g of meat. Unacceptable.
Fantastic quality brisket. So tender and delicious, I can't recommend enough.
Very disappointed with last joint. Very tough and
Very disappointed with last joint. Very tough and impossible to carve. Usually very tender cooked in slow cooker but this one was tough.
