Beef Brisket Sandwiches

Beef Brisket Sandwiches
Beef brisket is a tough cut of meat that benefits from long, slow cooking. Here, we accomplish this task by using a slow cooker, which produces juicy, exceptionally tender meat. To create the ultimate sandwiches, layer slices of beef between toasted sandwich rolls and drizzle with your favorite barbecue sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 1 beef brisket, 4 to 5 lb.
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1⁄4 cup beef grilling rub
  • 2 small yellow or red onions, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1⁄2 cup beef stock
  • 1⁄2 cup lager-style beer
  • 10 sandwich rolls, toasted
  • Store-bought or homemade barbecue sauce,
     warmed, for serving (see related recipe at right)

Directions:

Season the beef brisket generously with salt and coat with the grilling rub. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or refrigerate overnight.

Put the onions, garlic, stock and beer in a slow cooker. Add the brisket, fat side up. Cover and cook on high for 8 hours according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer the brisket to a carving board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let stand for 30 minutes.

Slice the brisket across the grain and fill the rolls with meat. Pour barbecue sauce into a bowl and pass alongside. Serves 10.
