Celebrating Modern Jewish Living Through Food, Tradition, and Family
The Backstory: Brisket is something that I have eaten many times (and loved each and every time). Sure, I’ve had it on a plate and on a sandwich as a nosh. But the first time I had this sandwich, I could not believe what I had missed all the years. It was so different, yet it was brisket with a kick.More of the Backstory after the recipe…
…The Backstory continues: There was a deli in Staten Island, New York were I lived. I knew the family that owned the deli, and we frequented the restaurant often. Looking to try something different, I started to read the menu. The one word that stuck out was “garlic”. Anything with garlic is okay with me. I asked the waiter how is was prepared. I was sold as soon as he told me the process. Simple. of course I ordered it, and every time I went there it was my go-to thing. I could not believe it replaced my pastrami sandwich.
You can easily make this at home with leftover brisket and a sub roll or some leftover French bread. I encourage you to do so–it’s so simple and you will fall in love with brisket again. It’s worth picking up a few slices of meat from your local deli, just to make this sandwich. Just don’t forget to ask for some brisket gravy to go with it.
