Brisket is served as boiled brisket, corned beef, pastrami and BBQ. BBQ being the last method of brisket.

Really, DREW, a food tab - you could optimize the ad revenue from culinary sponsors.
think about it.

I really had no idea about the origins of the cut.

My grandmother made the best brisket. That and the fresh horseradish was the high point of Passover.

another vote for a food tab

I agree. A food tab, (or at least a tag -- Om Nom Nom Nom) would be welcome.

Because I grew up in Manhattan, I knew this from the time I was old enough to talk to my Jewish friends' bubbies.. My Yiayia made lamb BBQ as a compromise between old world and new (York).

So anyone want to hook this Gentile up with some recipes?

CSB:

For Passover one year, my mom was making a brisket. She got everything going, threw it in the oven, set the timer for 4 hours, and lay down to take a nap (Passover prep in an Orthodox house is INSANE. Think "obsessive-compulsion meets germophobia meets Monk/Felix Unger").

She woke up 8 hours later, pulled it out of the oven, and assumed it was overcooked crap (and almost tossed the whole $70 cut). However, once she tasted it, she knew that melt-in-your-mouth goodness would become a staple of Passover meals in the Dreidel house. And so it came to pass.

// you've never had meat that fell apart like that
 
2014-01-24 05:28:15 PM  
BBQ is pork! Pork, dammit! Anything else is grilled meat.
 
2014-01-24 05:34:13 PM  
This just in. Jewish Spaniards came over to the New World very very early. They have been in the Americas since the 1500s.

Seems their fellow Spaniards were too busy wiping out the Native populations to worry about the you know who's among them.

Nonsense - brisket is only good for my famous home made beef jerky. CSB - bought 20 pounds this morning, slowly freezing so I can slice it up when it gets semi-hard, marinate for 24 hours and dry it out over the weekend.

Only bad thing is after smelling it for two days I can't eat any, have to store it for a week before I can go crazy on it..

Dog hates me for two weeks, sorry 'nothing for you'

Texas brisket has nothing in common with jew brisket.

Yeah, the top part of Texas brisket is fatty as hell. Don't know why, but it's pretty repulsive.

I'm just the opposite. Everytime I make jerky, I eat it all at once. It doesn't matter how much I make. I eat it all straight through.

/I used to use Kroger's Jamaican Jerk marinade when I was in a hurry. That made amazing jerky for just pouring something out of a bottle into a bag of sliced meat...

May as well blame the Irish. Apparently pickled brisket (corned beef) was the steerage class food.

I don't know who you are, and I don't know where you live... but I hate you for the latter right about now.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gid_hanasheh
Gid hanasheh (Hebrew: גִּיד הַנָּשֶׁה) is the term for sciatic nerve in Judaism. It may not be eaten by Jews according to Halacha (Jewish Law). The laws of prohibition regarding the gid hanasheh are found in Masechet Chullin (Hullin) Perek 7.

The Torah (Genesis 32) recounts that Jacob fought with an angel (according to Rashi this was Esau's guardian angel) who could not beat him. At the end of the fight, the angel moves a nerve in Jacob's leg causing him to limp. The verse then states: "Therefore the children of Israel (Jacob) do not eat the gid hanasheh until today."

The removal of the gid hanasheh and chelev (other forbidden fats) is called nikkur. Since it is labor intensive to remove all the forbidden parts of the hind-quarters of an animal, the entire hind quarters are usually sold to the non-kosher market.

When I was in my 20s, back in the 80s, a coworker's brother did some ethnic thing where they buried a pig and roasted it underground.  I and a few of my co-workers got invited to the party.  When they dug it up and I saw the whole pig I almost puked :(  Got a plateful of what was prolly very tasty pig, couldn't eat it.

/ this was before I learned to cook
// first time I touched a raw steak I almost puked :(
/// could pretty much butcher a cow nowdays

My version of Jewish brisket

preheat oven to 350

put down a decent layer of oil in a large roasting pan; put empty roaster in the oven to heat the oil
slice an onion
add the onion to heated pan, covering the bottom, and put it back in the oven
coat brisket with ketchup or tomato paste
flour brisket all over with garlic, salt, and pepper to taste
as soon as you notice the smell of cooking onions retrieve the pan from the oven
put the brisket into the pan fat side up
reduce oven to 300
add a glass of Coke or Pepsi to the roaster
put brisket in the oven
cook a long, long time

let it cool
slice the brisket against the grain.

I remove what's left of the fatty layer and discard it since I hate fat. If my wife gets there first, she keeps it.

Not kosher for Passover.

So, "Jews" and "Brisket" are two words people have never before associated with one another?

I just drooled on my keyboard.  Have 2 barbeque joints nearby though, and decided about lunch while I was reading TFA.

Rather like reading the Politics tab, just because you can do something, does not mean that you should.
