At Schweid & Sons we grind whole muscles into ground beef using the most premium cuts available. One of those cuts may be familiar to you. The Brisket is probably the most well known of the beef cuts, and one of the most upward trending for Burgers. Today, let’s take a look at what Brisket is and how it’s most commonly used.
What Is Brisket?
The Brisket is one of the primal cuts of beef derived from the forequarter of harvested cattle.
Attributes Of Brisket
Brisket comes from the breast area, containing two main muscles, one of which is heavily marbled. It has a rich, buttery beef flavor that becomes very tender when cooked slowly at low temperatures.
Common Uses For Brisket
Brisket is most commonly used in smoked barbecue where the “low and slow” cooking style allows the meat to become incredibly tender while retaining tremendous flavor. The Brisket is also used for corned beef, pastrami, and burnt ends, among other dishes.
