Beef Brisket with Beer
Yes, beef brisket is one of the toughest cuts out there, but it’s also the most delicious. As it turns out, the easiest cooking method for this cut is also the best: add it to your slow cooker with some sautéed onions and a bottle of beer, then return eight hours later to meltingly tender meat and a sauce you'll want to dunk everything in. Another brilliant addition? A shot of balsamic vinegar. It perks up the flavor and adds a little bit of sweet and tang to the sauce. Serve with any simply cooked vegetable or sliced and piled on a sandwich.
