Did you know National Brisket Day is May 28th? Brisket is one of our favorite cuts, so in honor of the day we have compiled everything you need to know about this mouthwatering culinary delight.
Brisket is a cut taken from the breast. It lends itself to a wide variety of uses from braising to smoking to curing for corned beef.
Traditionally, brisket is cooked long and slow to ensure the tenderness of the finished dish. Lower-grade briskets have rather lean meat and a cap of fat that can vary in thickness. Lobel’s USDA Prime, Natural Prime, and Wagyu briskets are “packer’s cut” which means they have abundant marbling that bastes the meat from the inside as it cooks and a substantial fat cap that bastes the meat from the top down throughout the entire cooking process.
