Brisket of beef is a cheaper cut of meat that requires slow cooking and when I say slow cooked I really mean it! Yes 12 hours in a slow cooker is what's needed to get perfect melt in your mouth beef. I'd never cooked brisket before and fancied it would be rather nice cooked in a spicy tomato based sauce. The result we perfect and well worth the wait.
Once done, simply pile onto soft warm tortillas and top with a corn and black bean salsa.
If you cook a bigger piece of brisket than I did, once cooled it can easily be popped into the freezer making this meal perfect for an informal dinner party with friends or family.
I recently bought a fridge freezer from Argos and find it really helps cooking more than you need and freezing the rest – it makes the next meal easy, fast and stress free.
