Slow-cooked beef brisket with chimichurri
Try this RACV Club recipe on AFL Grand Final day, or any other day you want a family feast.
RACV Club Executive Chef Jason Camillo's recipe for slow-cooked beef brisket will turn your Grand Final viewing into a feast. Grab some fresh rolls, fill them with tender beef, coleslaw, mustard and pickles, and watch the twilight game in style.
"This slow-cooked American-style barbecue brisket is one of the best, depending on what type of barbecue you have," he says. "A Webber with wood chips and charcoal is ideal. I would use something like hickory as a wood chip, because it produces a great flavour. I am also a fan of lots of condiments: chilli sauce, barbecue sauce, and American mustard – I recommend French's brand of mustard – along with some great pickles."
Jason says a good relationship with your local butcher is the best way to get quality meat.
"A brisket may look daunting but is really simple, and doesn’t require a lot of preparation," he says. "I recommend doing the rub the night before. Put the brisket in the fridge overnight, then start the barbecue early in the morning."
