Here is a brisket I made during the holidays. Again this was a first for me. We had dinner at a local barbecue place and Mr. Man ordered himself the brisket “platter” (he likes to eat). Sadly his reviews were less than favorable. So I decided maybe I should make one at home and see how it turns out.
Funny thing is by ordering the piece of meat I needed for the recipe I was told by the butcher: “well, you do realize that it would cost about $25.00?” I guess I should dress better when I go to the grocery, maybe coming directly from the gym all sweaty sends the wrong message.
Anyway, I had saved this from an old Martha Stewart magazine. So I pulled it out, read it careful (which in my case means I scanned it quickly) and went to work. This is not a difficult meal to prepare but it is time consuming. Don’t start at 5 thinking you will be eating by 6….won’t work and you will be serving PB & Js to your kids (not that there is anything wrong with that).
Here is the brisket coming out of the oven:
Here is a picture of Mr. Man’s plate from that night.

Note: I didn’t have parsnips and I used frozen pearl onions. Oh I almost forgot, I also added some small portobello mushrooms. It was delicious!
Please send me your reviews if you decide to make this.
