Back to Blog

So, I've gotten some flack recently about my online presence (or lack thereof). I mean jeez people, I work at least 10 hours per day AND go to school full time AND do wifey stuffs. Gimme a break! I kid, I kid. I need to be better about blogging and therefore resolve to do so! Call it a Chinese New Year Resolution! (That's coming up, right?)

Since I haven't taken any food pics in a long time, I figured I would blog about a couple of my family recipes that I make frequently. The next time I make them, I'll post a pic and you all can ooh and aah over my culinary prowess. Cool?

Here are a few tried and true standards from my kitchen to yours. Enjoy!

Texas Style Beef Brisket
4-5 lbs Brisket
1 1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup vinegar (white)
1/2 cup or 1/2 medium onion chopped fine
1 tablespoon Worcester sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 bay leaf crushed
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Wipe beef dry. Rub with salt. Combine other ingredients. Place on double thickness of alum foil. Pour ingredients over brisket and wrap tight with foil.

Cook 300 degrees for 4 to 4 1/2 hours. For over 5lbs or more cook no more than 350 degrees for 5 hours.

Note: Brisket can be placed in pan and covered tightly with foil, since there can be a nice amount of juice.

My moms note: I mix about 2 cups of the juice with BBQ sauce to make my own sauce.

CB, I did not just C&P from your blog! I C&Ped from an email that my mom sent me 2 years ago. So there! :p

Besides, if it is my recipe, shouldn't I have it on my blog? ::smooch::
