Braised BBQ Top of the Rib

We generally avoid using a lot of sugar in our cooking, but sometimes a good old-fashioned pulled piece of tender, BBQ meat is what you need (not to mention the cornbread, coleslaw, pickles, baked potatoes….) Top of the Rib is a nicely marbled roast that is a good stand-in for Second Cut Brisket (it’s marbling…

Instant Pot Corned Beef

Our lean, flavorful deckel makes an amazing Corned Beef.  We sell it already cooked (and even sliced!) but for those looking for a very easy roast to cook at home, it’s also available raw.  This is a delicious, easy cut to prepare, especially if you have an electric pressure cooker such as an Instant Pot.  If you don’t, we’ve included additional directions for oven cooking.

Wine Braised Brisket with Butternut Squash

Liz: Brisket really gets Jews talking. The mere mention of the word brings up stories of holidays past, aunts who can’t cook, aunts who can cook, grandmas force-feeding grandkids, etc. While beef was often very expensive in the old country, brisket became a symbol of plenty in North America, where it was more affordable but no less special. This brisket is braised for hours, just as many Jewish briskets are, but we incorporate white wine instead of the more typical red, and butternut squash instead of potatoes. This makes for a lighter, brighter brisket, if such a thing exists, so it’s a better fit for holiday meals served during the warmer months. Note that the second cut brisket we recommend for this recipe will not slice as thinly as the first cut. It’s softer and fattier. This doesn’t bother us. The meat will be so tender you could cut it with a spoon—who needs a thin slice? Also note that if you’d like to make this a more wintry brisket, you can swap the squash for potatoes and/or turnips and put the veggies in an hour earlier than the recipe calls for. Jeffrey prefers it that way, and once again, we agree to disagree.
