Brisket is best suited to slow cooking. It comes from the chest and shoulder area of the cow, an area of hard working muscles which benefit from long, slow cooking. It has high percentage of fat which is marbled throughout this cut but the benefit of this is that it renders down to keep the meat moist and intensifies the flavour. Sold boned and rolled, brisket is commonly slow-roasted in the oven until the meat is falling apart and beautifully tender. It is often referred to as the beef equivalent of pulled pork. It is ideal for pot roasting or braising, but it can also be casseroled or boiled.
