So when I woke up this morning I knew it was going to be a lazy day (being my last day of summer vacation and all) so I decided to make the Braised Beef Brisket in my Crock Pot instead of in the oven. I used all the same ingredients and directions (except I cooked the potatoes and carrots separately as we don't like them mushy), I just cooked it on low for 8 hours instead of in the oven and it was delicious! Next time I will add a bit more tomato paste and garlic, and some onion soup mix, to amp up the flavor a bit...but I am fan of big flavors :)
Then because it was Sunday, I gave all our menu items some True Blood inspired names: Big Bad Wolf Beef Brisket, Lafayette's Hot and Spicy Potatoes, Get Away Vamp Garlic Bread, Sookie's Sweet Tooth and True Blood Champagne Cocktail (1/2 champagne 1/2 Raspberry Crystal Light). Check out the deliciousness below!
