Beef Brisket

On the grill or stove or in the crockpot, beef brisket requires long, slow cooking for the most tender results. These easy beef brisket recipes let you serve everyone's favorite flavors, including barbecued, corned beef, and Texas beef brisket.

How to Cook Beef Brisket

While anyone can wow dinner guests with filet mignon or another expensive cut of meat, a truer test of cooking skill is transforming a less choice cut, such as beef brisket, into a meal that is tantalizing and unforgettably scrumptious. Beef brisket is cut from the breast or chest portion of a cow or calf. It's a tougher, fattier cut of meat than what most of us might prefer, but slow-cooked and drenched in tangy barbecue sauce, beef brisket becomes extraordinary. Knowing how to cook beef brisket just right is a process that begins long before you heat your smoker, grill or oven.
