Growing up in my Italian family, sandwiches were our go-to lunch on the weekends. They are quick and hearty and the options for toppings are endless. Beef brisket is something that I came to enjoy later in life, so I am serving it here in a hamburger bun with pickles and coleslaw. Beef brisket has become popular so this cut of beef is now easier to find at your local grocery store. The cut is moderately priced and because it will be simmering away in the slow cooker for six hours, it has a lot of time to become fork-tender. After six hours of braising you simply use two forks to pull it apart. I save the drippings to make the delicious barbecue sauce to serve on the pulled beef brisket sandwiches. I highly recommend you do this step – this scratch barbecue sauce makes this sandwich a star that me and my boys have come to enjoy on the weekends!
Note to self (and you): the pulled beef brisket is also great in tacos and on nachos too, so, use it however you please!Print
