Sunday supper just got a whole lot better with this collection of beef brisket recipes. Sure, you can stick with the standard weekend pot roast, but these flavorful briskets are also begging for a seat at the table. From oven-baked to slow cooker dinners, these recipes are cooked slow for a tender cut every time. You'll find that the leftovers for these mains will give you milage for the week ahead too. Try our piling your plate with Brisket Tacos with Summer Salsa or stirring extra meat into the next day's Chicken-and-Brisket Brunswick Stew. If you want to go with a classic corned beef brisket recipe or try your hand with the smoker, worry not. We've got a recipe for that, too. The moral of the story? It's hard to go wrong where brisket is concerned.
