Sometimes It's Story Time

Ok, I know I promised a bean recipe this week, but it's been a strange one and I haven't had much energy for writing. But here is an odd story about a brisket.

This brisket. I made it with the usual oven method that I've been using since I got the cookbook it's in. But it never got tender. Ever. I cooked it for hours, it tasted great, but it was, well, hard. I wound up cutting it in cubes and braising it with some beans and bbq sauce but it never achieved that fork tender thing you want brisket to do. What's up with that? I am going to suggest that the brisket was a jerk and was trying to start with me. Fortunately, being a brisket it was without movement, so I won. Locomotion, ftw!

Briskets can be total jerks!

Sometimes you just get a bad piece of meat. It doesn't happen often but it does happen.
