How to Make Oven Brisket

How to Make Oven Brisket

Are you craving a tender, juicy brisket but don’t own a grill or a smoker? Don’t fret, I have just the recipe for you! This recipe’s is technically from my significant other’s grandmother, but over the last year or so I’ve added my own flair to this incredible oven brisket.

Required items

  • Brisket, duh. This recipe tends to turn out better with corned-beef brisket, but a normal beef brisket will work just fine.
  • eight to twelve ounces of ketchup
  • Worcestershire sauce (to your taste)
  • Soy Sauce (to your taste)
  • One Container Beef Broth
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Oregano
  • Liquid Smoke or Smokey Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Tin Foil
  • A Roasting Pan, preferably four to five inches deep (for the oven)
  • A Mixing Bowl
  • A Basting Brush

Oven Brisket Steps

  • 1 – Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • 2 – Open your brisket and place in whatever your roasting pan.
  • 3 – Season both sides of the brisket with a mixture of oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder. No need to rub the seasoning into the meat, but I always try to!
  • 4 – Place the roasting pan into the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes (don’t forget to set a timer here!).
  • 5 – While the brisket is cooking, mix the ketchup, a splash of Worcestershire, and two splashes soy sauce in your mixing bowl. Remember, this is all to your tasting! Feel free to adjust these amounts here.
  • 6 – Once 45 minutes have passed, remove the brisket from the oven and carefully place on your counter.
  • 7 – Pour some beef broth into the roasting pan. This will create steam and is crucial to creating that tender brisket your heart is patiently waiting for.
  • 8 – With your basting brush, paint the complete top of the brisket with the ketchup concoction from step 5.
  • 9 – Pour liquid smoke or Smokey seasoning into the beef broth. If you have the seasoning, you could simply season the meat, but I prefer to allow it to smoke with the broth rather than actually adding more seasoning to the meat.
  • 10 – Cover the pan with tin foil two to three times to ensure optimal levels of steam/moisture remain within.
  • 11 – Poke a few small holes into the four corners of the tin foil for safety.
  • 12 – Place the roasting pan back in oven for four to five more hours. Be sure to check periodically and add more beef broth if it evaporates.
  • 13 – Remove from oven, cut against the grain, and enjoy!

Voila, a masterfully crafted brisket straight from the comfort of your own home’s oven. To really bring out the flavors from this brisket, pair with some mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, or green beans. It also pairs quite nice with dressing (or stuffing) around the holidays. So don’t be afraid to whip out this recipe next thanksgiving, friends-giving, or Christmas. This is one of my favorite recipes, so be sure to let me know how it turns out!

How to Make Pineapple Teriyaki Pork Tacos

For those of you in search of a luau/Hawaiian themed meal, look no further, I have a pineapple teriyaki pork taco meal just for you! This was something I experimented with earlier this year and it is now hands down one of the top three meals that I make. It’s also an extremely simple recipe, so head below to learn how to make some delicious pork tacos!

Ingredients & Necessary Items

  • Pork Tenderloin (Teriyaki Flavored preferably, but you can also just soak a plain chunk of meat in your own teriyaki sauce)
  • Pineapple
  • Garlic
  • Oregano
  • Taco Shells
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Other Optional Items: Sour Cream, Salsa, Additional Teriyaki Sauce, Hot Sauce, or whatever you may prefer to have on top of your tacos.
  • Non-Food Items: Cutting Board, Sharp Knife, Non-stick Pan/Skillet or Griddle

Steps

  • Remove the pork tenderloin from its packaging and place it on the cutting board
  • Turn stove or griddle onto medium heat
  • Begin dicing the pork into tiny chunks (think about the size of a quartered cherry tomato) or shredding if you have the ability too.
  • Once the pork is diced, place in a pan or skillet to begin browning
  • Begin dicing the pineapple up into similarly sized chunks as the pork
  • Once the pork is almost finished cooking (10-20 minutes depending on your temperature), turn the heat to high, drop the pineapple into the pan, and add a spoonful of garlic to the pork
  • Let both the pork and the pineapple crisp in the pan (5-10 minutes, completely your preference) and sprinkle in a touch of oregano as they do.
  • Warm-up your shells (if you went with soft shell) and enjoy!

It’s as easy as that. I personally prefer my pineapple teriyaki pork tacos with a touch of shredded lettuce and a small amount of sour cream. The sour cream works wonders with the sweetness of the teriyaki and the lettuce adds an extra crunch to the taco. I also would recommend soft shell tacos here as it can become messy depending on how much extra teriyaki you may have added, but hard shells would still pair incredibly with this meal. These delicious tacos prepare in just about 30 minutes and I 10 out of 10 recommend you make them as soon as possible!

How to Griddle French Toast

How to Griddle French Toast

There’s nothing quite like a perfectly crisped piece of French Toast to begin a relaxing Sunday morning. I recently re-discovered my love for French Toast after acquiring a griddle for my new house, and boy did I forget how much I loved it. However, I’m very much a minimalist when it comes to this breakfast delicacy. I don’t need mass amounts of sugary fruits or a half a bottle of syrup. I keep it quick and easy when making my French Toast, and below you’ll learn just how I do that.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

This list is extremely small, yet your French Toast will still be exploding with flavor!

  • One loaf of bread (Your choice, but I prefer a medium sliced Brioche).
  • Eggs (I typically use 5-6 for an entire loaf of bread).
  • A splash of milk or half and half (again your preference, but I’ve found that the half and half produces a tastier French Toast).
  • Powdered/Confectionate sugar.
  • Cinnamon Sugar.
  • Syrup of your choice (My favorite is a small batch blueberry syrup that only needs a half spoonful on each piece of French Toast).
  • Butter.
Step 2: Turn on Griddle

The griddle should be on medium-high heat for the perfectly cooked French Toast, but don’t be afraid to heat it up to high for 10-15 minutes before lowering back down to the recommended temp. Be careful to not have the griddle too hot as it will quickly burn the underside of your bread!

Step 3: Preparation

As the griddle is warming to its desired temperature you may begin the prep on the bread.

  • You will crack however many eggs you require into some sort of container that easily allows for the dipping of bread (I recommend something square/rectangular rather than circular).
  • Next, add your splash of milk or half and half and whisk the concoction until most of the egg yolks have broke and are mixed evenly throughout.
  • Sprinkle in some cinnamon sugar and whisk some more.
Step 4: Griddlin’
  • By now your griddle should be at its ideal temp, so open your bread and begin dipping it into the milk/egg concoction.
  • After each piece has been dipped on both sides, gently place it on the griddle and listen to that sizzle that will make your stomach rumble!
  • By the time you have all of your bread on the griddle, it will probably be time to start flipping. So rotate back to your first piece and start to flip over your perfectly bronzed bread.
  • Let the other side cook for 1-2 minutes (maybe more if you’re more on the medium side rather than the high side of heat) before flipping one final time.
  • This last step is crucial, yet also all based on personal preference. In my opinion, the perfect French Toast is almost burnt on one side and perfectly golden on the other. So I typically let the toast sit another minute or two before taking it off.
Step 5: Final Touches

Once the French Toast has been crisped to absolute perfection, you will add the final touch of a minimal amount of powdered sugar that is topped off with your syrup of choice (I’m telling you, gotta try that blueberry one from above). ANd from here, plate your delectable French Toast and enjoy!
