Expert Tips

If desired, substitute a rump roast in place of the brisket.

If desired, serve sliced brisket on split and toasted buns for hearty sandwiches.

Freeze any leftover brisket for another meal. Seal in a freezer container, label, date and freeze. When ready to use, thaw overnight in refrigerator, then heat until hot and meat thermometer reads 165°F. Beef, if sealed airtight, can be frozen for up to 4 months.
