Best Leftovers Ever
March 9, 2008
Did you miss me? Sorry for my brief absence (I told you I couldn’t keep that pace up), but between an ethics exam in the morning yesterday and a dinner party last night, yesterday was a leetle busy. But, the ethics exam is over (!) and the dinner party was a smashing success. So, it’s back to the blog.
One of the things we made for last night’s dinner was a brisket I’ve already blogged about. More on other aspects of the dinner later this week. But, for now, I can’t resist sharing photos of what could possibly be the best leftovers ever: a brisket sandwich.
(Click “more” for the rest of the story & more photos.)
I piled the leftover brisket onto thick slices of hearty bread. I topped that with a drizzle of the the brisket’s leftover zinfandel sauce and roasted onions and thick slices of sharp cheddar. A quick grill in the panini pan later, we had the perfect sandwich. The only bad news is that we only had enough leftover brisket for one sandwich. Kevin had to fight me for it, but he won. I am truly powerless against his puppy dog eyes.
The recipe for Zinfandel-Braised Brisket is here.
