What is Brisket?

Different Methods of Preparation
Brisket has historically been prepared many different ways across many different cultures. A staple of Jewish cooking, brisket is often braised like a pot roast in this style of cuisine. In China and Hong Kong, brisket can be cooked with spices and then used in soups as a tender beef component. One of the most common ways to prepare brisket in Southern United States is to smoke it on the barbecue, and rub it down with seasoning. The style and method of preparation is up to you but if you follow some of these tips, your brisket will be perfect every time!
First trim off all excess fat. To give your brisket some more flavor, first brown the meat in a little oil for 20 minutes on medium heat. Then place it into the braising liquid and let it simmer over low heat until tender.
Begin your process at night since it will take all night to cook. Use a meat thermometer! The highest temperature your meat should reach is 185 degrees! Another handy tool to consider might be a temperature alarm to make sure the meat does not exceed this temperature.
