This is my favourite joint of beef. For beef like Grandma used to make (1950s/60s) I usually cook it in my pressure cooker with 2 cups of beef stock for 60 minutes. So succulent, cooked to perfection.
I buy the largest size available on most of my orders. I use the large slow cooker - the one with 3 heats..low/medium/high. I just drop the brisket into the cooker, and cook for 6 hours on medium heat. The knife goes through the middle easily. Makes a lovely meal, and any leftover for sandwiches.. Very very good quality, and a lovely beefy flavour. There is absolutely NO waste.
never disappoints.....brisket is a really flavoursome cut of meat but does need to be cooked long and slow either in oven or slow cooker...can't understand the bad reviews...
Do not waste your money
8 hours in slow cooker and still inedible. The saying 'tough as old boots' comes to mind.
Excellent if cooked properly
This is excellent brisket but you have to know how to cook it properly. I use a slow cooker and leave it in for a long time (at least 8 hours and preferably longer). If you do that then the results will be excellent, with lovely and tender meat. But if you try and cut corners and cook it more quickly you will of course end up with a horrible lump of tough meat, fat and gristle.
NEVER GAIN would I buy this grizzly 'meat'
Do not buy - full of grizzle, could not eat over half the joint. I am putting in a complaint about it as I just threw over £7 in the bin by wasting my money on this.
This joint was absolutely wonderful. It was so tasty and melt in the mouth it was so tender I do not have anything negative to say about this joint I would definitely recommend this.
IT WAS GOOD QUALITY BUT THE SIZE AND WEIGHT IS FAR
IT WAS GOOD QUALITY BUT THE SIZE AND WEIGHT IS FAR TOO SMALL . I NEED ABOUT 3 - 4 KILO IN JOINT FORM
Here’s the fair and honest review you need.
A lot of mixed reviews so I’m going to give you the fair and honest take. Brisket from supermarket is not my sort of thing. Much like burgers, I’d always prefer to go to a butchers. This was a 1-off supermarket brisket. Marinated then fried in an oven safe dish for 10 minutes. Both sides seared. Slow cooked in oven for 4 hours. Served with sweet potato wedges. Results were overall impressive. Flavours were excellent. The majority of the joint was tender and juicy. There was fat and there was tough sections. I would say that I would be comfortable serving/eating 75% of the brisket. The fatty and chewy bits are more suitable for the dog. The parts that were edible were fantastic. Full of flavour. Based on everything, it’s probably around 3.5 stars. But we’ll have to be nice and give it a 4. I’d recommend buying 0.8kg for 2 people. This will guarantee both get generous portions of great quality. If you try and serve this to a family of 4-5 people are not going to be happy and I get that.
not enough to feed a family and its full of fat all the way through the meat its gone in the bin awful
