What happened yesterday? Well, my local boys aka the Houston Astros made history when they became the first franchise in MLB history to have won a pennant in both the NL and the AL, when they defeated the New York Yankees in the ALCS and went on to win The World Series!!!
What does that have to do with Zero Carb (ZC)? NOTHING!!! I thought I would just rub it in for all those LA Dodgers fans..........sorry...............not!!!
Rub? Well, now we are talking!!
How does that relate to (ZC) you may or may not be asking yourself right this moment. Well, as most of us know "rub" or "rubs" are related in a way to a Fatty Beef Brisket...........aaahhh music to my ears!!!
OK: so I made this oh so yummy Fatty Beef Brisket last night that was tender and tasty. I deviated from my regular recipe and tried something new, yet old.
Something "NEW" yet "OLD"........jeez what the heck is Dave talking about??? I think he has sniffed his brisket too deeply!!!
Sniffed indeed!!! OK, no more comedians please.
NEW: The Method
OLD: The Subject
LOOK IT: I usually cook my Fatty Beef Brisket in the oven on a high temp for a short time. That is my "Method" most of the time. Of course the "Subject" is as mentioned the Fatty Beef Brisket itself.
Yesterday I thought..........yes that could be dangerous........that I would change things up a little and decided to slow cook the Fatty Beef Brisket in the oven.
First of all I cut the Brisket in half. Saving the flat end to be ground up in the near future. The I placed the meat in a glass baking dish and covered it tight with foil. I did not prick holes in it.
I set the oven temp at 275 degrees and set the timer for 3 hours. Three hours later the house smelt like HEAVEN!!!!! BUT, the meat was TOUGH!!
YIKES!!! So I extended the cooking time for another 3 hours and that did the trick. It was very tender yet a little stringy. I tried to cut against the grain, but it was a little hard to do.
I did manage to cut up most of it in somewhat more or less in slices and some I just chopped up. It was very good if not GREAT!
I have to say that all in all I was happy with the results, but I will try again in the future and play with the temperature and cooking time. I thought I would share this with you.
More things to come soon:
NEW Oopsie Roll experiments: Really yummy with some surprising ingredients. That's it for now.
Have a great (ZC) day my friends and family. Stay Strong, Live Long and Always Battle On!!!
