What is beef brisket?
Beef brisket is a cut which comes from the chest area of the cow, and which boasts a winning combination of rich, robust flavor and melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. Brisket as typically found in the UK and Ireland is subtly different from the American cut, which is perhaps better known internationally. Whereas in the USA, brisket is defined as coming from just above and between the forelegs, the brisket you’ll find in this product is from a little further down the cow’s chest, behind the forelegs.
Thanks to its mild, wet climate and rolling hills, Ireland’s terrain is perfect for raising cattle. This results not only in milk, butter and cheese which are world-renowned for quality, but also outstanding beef. Lecale Harvest’s use of locally reared, grass-fed beef is just the first step in making this beef brisket truly outstanding.
The next, equally important factor is the Irish stout sauce! The beef brisket is marinated in this mixture of beer, carrots, onions and herbs, and that’s the key to making this joint of meat so tender. The malty flavour of the stout is the perfect compliment to the hearty beef, and together they’re an unbeatable combination.
Irish beef brisket of this quality deserves to be prepared with patience and skill, and that’s exactly what you’ll find here. The beef is soaked overnight in its sauce to tenderise the meat and allow the flavours to really soak in. It’s then slow-cooked to perfection, allowing the collagen-rich fibres to break down gradually, resulting in a tender and succulent final product.
The beauty of Lecale Harvest’s Slow Cooked Beef Brisket is that most of the hard work has been already done for you. Preparation time is minimal – all you need to do is reheat and serve, either in the oven or by boiling. Each pack contains two portions of beef brisket. Just add some spuds and veggies and you’ve got a quick, simple and absolutely delicious meal for two.
