If you’re like me, you probably thought you could only eat it one way, and that’s from a slow cooker and smothered in BBQ sauce.

I’m happy to report that could not be farther from the truth! 

From pasta dishes to sandwiches, brisket has made a serious impression in the food industry.

You’ll notice it on almost every restaurant menu. It can be a meal that reinvents signature dishes or stands on its own as a barbecue-style powerhouse.

Now that we know brisket is here to stay, let’s talk about all the amazing ways to enjoy it!

1. Slow Cooker Beef Brisket with BBQ Sauce 

Let’s start with the original brisket recipe, because nobody says no to the meat sweats. 

This brisket starts in the slow cooker for 8 hours. Then, it browns up in the oven and is doused in barbecue sauce.

The sauce is made using the liquid from the cooking process.

Try this brisket with a homemade barbecue sauce that almost outshines the meat itself.

2. Onion-Braised Beef Brisket 

You know the old saying, “You are what you eat?” Well, if that’s true, I’d definitely be an onion.

This brisket is cooked over a pile of onions that caramelize, creating a creamy, sweet, and decadent gravy.

This recipe had me at French onion soup!

3. Baked Corned Beef Brisket 

Want to make a beef brisket that doesn’t get lost in the sauce? Try this baked corn beef-crusted brisket.

Utilizing a brine for the meat and roasting it in the oven creates a crunchy exterior while still achieving that must-have tender center.

4. Texas Smoked Brisket 

If your creations are a labor of love, this recipe is your perfect match.

Don’t let the simple ingredients fool you. This brisket packs in some serious flavor!

If you’re new to cooking brisket, this is an easy-to-follow dish that lets the beef speak for itself.

5. Holiday Brisket 

Nothing says celebration like this festive brisket! Inspired by Jewish traditions, this sweet and tangy dish will send your tastebuds on a magic carpet ride.

This kosher beef is stewed in a tomato base and complete with hearty vegetables in the oven.

6. Crockpot Brisket Sandwich Recipe 

Attention all sloppy Joe lovers, I think these brisket sandwiches will win your heart! 

If you’re too busy to tend to a pit in your yard, this Crockpot recipe will impress even the proudest Texan.

Try this smoky BBQ brisket served in a soft buttery roll to elevate your weeknight meal.

7. Brisket Tacos 

I’ve always been a steak tacos kind of gal, but then I tried these brisket tacos.

The melt in your mouth beef wrapped in a fresh corn tortilla is second to none.

More of a flour tortilla fan? This brisket is super versatile and works well in any Mexican-inspired dish, whether it’s a burrito, enchiladas, a bowl, or nachos!

You can shut me up with a good taco salad any day of the week.

8. Braised Brisket with Red Wine and Honey 

Ihis red wine and honey-infused brisket is honestly the stuff dreams are made of. It’s tender, bold, and delicious.

Not sold yet? Pair it with the truffled mashed potatoes suggested in the recipe for a truly gourmet experience at home.

9. Smoked Brisket Chili 

Before you set yourself in front of the fireplace, grab a bowl of this mouth-watering brisket chili.

I typically choose a turkey chili over beef because of the excess fat. But this recipe lets you enjoy the sweet satisfaction of red meat without the oily residue.

It’s perfect for leftovers, Sunday hangovers, and one-pot aficionados!

10. Smoked Brisket Pastrami Recipe 

Let’s take the corn beef brisket one step further with this homemade pastrami!

This unique spin on brisket puts out a killer brine that’s applied to a lean beef cut, so every inch cures to perfection.

After 7 days of marinating, add a generous helping of pastrami seasoning before it hits the smoker.

After a few hours of TLC, the result is an unreal deli-cut style beef pastrami.

11. Brisket Sliders 

The smaller the food, the more I can eat. That’s how it goes, right? These brisket sliders will have you unbuttoning your jeans at the dinner table!

Hawaiian-style buns are brushed with an onion and butter spread, stacked with smoked brisket, and drenched in a white barbecue sauce.

They’re perfect for your picky eater or too-cool-for-meatloaf teenager, making them a household favorite.

12. Instant Pot Korean Chile Braised Brisket

If you’re someone who keeps a bottle of Tabasco sauce in your purse at all times, this chile braised brisket is definitely your cup of tea. 

This dish is wildly spicy with the use of Korean chile paste.

Serve it with kimchi coleslaw or classic salad to cool it down and appease all your guests mild palettes.

13. Oven Braised Brisket with Vegetables 

This is an excellent alternative to a quick comfort meal or for family dinners. 

Not everyone has the time to brine a brisket for days. This dish is perfect for making a decadent beef dish in just a few hours.

14. Slow Cooker Beer Onion Brisket 

Do you look forward to beer brined turkey every year? Look no further! This beer onion brisket will hold you over till November.

Smothered in caramelized onions and garlic and doused in Worcestershire sauce and beer, this slow-cook brisket is worth a try for the drippings alone.

15. BBQ Brisket Burnt Ends 

There’s a fine line between burnt and charred meats, and this recipe is giving me charred to perfection! 

Originally a way to reserve leftover cuts, burnt ends have become a regular item in the BBQ world.

This recipe uses a technique true to Kansas City. There, the ends are cut first and charred instead of being used from a whole cut that’s already been smoked.

16. Pappardelle with Slow-Cooked Brisket

I’m ready to sit down and write my eat, pray, love memoir after eating this pasta.

It’s a good option after you’ve meal-prepped a large cut and plan to eat it the rest of the week. 

Whether it’s a store-bought noodle or you go the extra mile with homemade pappardelle, this ragu brisket pasta is amazing.

17. Sous Vide Smoked Beef Brisket 

If you’ve never heard of the process of sous vide before, this recipe will get your attention.

The method calls for vacuum sealing your desired meat and then submerging it in tempered water. 

The result is a tender, slow-cooked brisket with a rich dark color that showcases its deep flavors.

18. Oven-Roasted Beef Brisket with Bourbon Peach Glaze 

There’s nothing better than cooking fruit-infused dishes on a warm summer night with a margarita in hand. 

This dish is ideal for a night on the patio with your friends or a romantic dinner for two.

Enjoy this oven-roasted beef brisket that’s finished with a peach and bourbon glaze. 

Pair it with a citrus salad and roasted potatoes for a light but satisfying meal that leaves room for s’mores by the fire.

19. Brisket Nachos 

Need something quick and hearty for football Sunday or a friends game night? Nachos are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. 

Consider this recipe the more edgy and rebellious sister of barbecue pulled pork nachos.

Cooked in a cast-iron skillet, these ingredients are piled high for a loaded chip in every bite.

20. Coffee Rubbed Brisket 

Coffee isn’t just the reason you get up in the morning, it’s also an amazing aromatic and smart cooking ingredient. 

This coffee-rubbed brisket takes advantage of the bold flavors cultivated in coffee beans.

The result creates an earthy, smoky taste that tenderizes the beef flawlessly.

Couple it with a macaroni salad or eat it as a sandwich for a cozy and satisfying lunch.
