I was not ready to add this easy recipe for braised beef brisket to the blog today. But, I have had so many request for the recipe over the past two months, I could not wait for better pictures, lol! This was my dishes to share with a special group of women that I have grown to love and admire. They are volunteers and community leaders here in my small town. Every Friday we share a special community lunch. But it’s more than that. I have made some real and lasting friendships over the past two years. And making new friends, good friends, over a special meal is priceless. This is an easy recipe for beef brisket out of your oven. The key is making sure you do not let it overcook. If you don’t have one in your kitchen, please go out and get a meat thermometer. It’s an inexpensive, but valuable tool when preparing roast, steaks, pork tenderloin. It’s a must in my kitchen. Along with the juicy brisket, I shared a big pan of enchilada rice. Go to the end of the blog post to see tips on how to prepare that dish! #foodforacrowd #brisketrecipes

Anytime I prepare brisket, whether it’s on the smoker or in the oven, there’s bound to be tacos at point.
