Becky Church from the Minnesota Beef Council prepares dinner date meals perfect for you and your sweetie.
- Can make the herb cowboy butter in advance
- Keep it simple with a salt and pepper seasoning. The bacon and cowboy butter will add the flavor.
- Make sure the cast iron skillet is hot to get a good sear!
- Temp to 145 for medium.
- Save time by using a premade BBQ sauce
- Making in a pressure cooker only takes 2 hours versus 8 hour in a slow cooker or on the pellet grill – If using smoker or pellet grill, plan for 8 hours at 225 degrees
- What do you do with leftover brisket? Serve with roasted or mashed potatoes for Valentine’s Day, then the next day on a bun, in a bowl or with eggs for breakfast.
- Slicing against the grain gives you the best eating experience. Brisket is connective tissue, so that’s why we are cooking it slower and also making sure we slice against the grain
- Don’t over flip. Flip steaks once on the grill and rely on your thermometer to determine doneness.
