As the author of “The Brisket Book: A Love Story With Recipes,” I was anointed “The Brisket Queen” on Twitter by Julia Moskin of The New York Times. A passionate brisket cook, eater and chronicler, and a keen observer of the brisket zeitgeist, I need no crystal ball to predict brisket’s future: Brisket is going small — in a big way.
The coleslaw adds welcome crunch and bright flavor to this mini brisket sandwich. Many supermarkets carry slider buns — and if you can find little brioche or potato rolls, all the better.
Slows Bar B Q’s chef and pitmaster, Brian Perrone, recommends barbecued brisket over braised for this recipe, but says that “braised will work, too. I just wouldn’t go with a brisket braised in red wine.” Beer-braised brisket worked well when the Forward tested these tacos. We also decided to make a miniature version, perfect for holiday hors d’oeuvres, by using a 3-inch round cookie cutter to make the tortillas smaller.
This is a great trick when you have some leftover brisket. If you have a little sauce or pan juice from the brisket, add it to the meat; then warm in the microwave before you top the eggs. They will be even tastier.
