Whats For Dinner Next Week:Brisket & Vegetables

Oh my goodness...I am still so full from that wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. We were so grateful to have some of our family here with us. We had a wonderful day filled with good food and fellowship and for those who could not be with us this year you were in our heart and we missed you! Now we are ready to move past Thanksgiving and on to next week. I don't know about  you but I am ready for a good ole hamburger.

We have several friends that will be celebrating Hanukkah this coming week. 
We wish all of you a very Happy Hanukkah.

  1. Interesting twist to add veggies to the brisket, you usually just think of this with Pot Roast. Sound wonderful. We will be having spaghetti here today.

  2. sounds like a delicious way to fix brisket. We are going to relax with bison and beef burgers here today. Have a blessed weekend!

  3. I've never made brisket. How does it differ from just a roast? Sounds like a great meals!

  4. Hi Debbi,
    At one time the brisket was a less expensive cut of meat, because of the heavy grain it has to be cut across the grain. We think that it has a richer taste than just a chuck or arm roast. It is usually cooked as Bar B Que or Smoked. My husband loves the Brisket and Vegetables, it really does have a different flavor than the regular pot roast. Thanks for stopping by!
