When cooking a brisket in a household of only two people, the problem is you have meat for days. DAYS.
The initial meal can get you through at least a couple of nights. For the inaugural meal, I slow-braised the weighty side of beef in a pool of beef stock (with a healthy splash of Guinness) along with bobbing bits of onion, potato, multicolor carrots and pickling spices – classic pot roast style elevated by the substitution of savory, salty pink corned beef, you can feast on that for at least a day or two.
And then, the sandwiches begin.
I don’t know if 303 Day was just made up yesterday or if it’s been a thing for a while now.
But guys, with this blue-sky, sunny Colorado patio-weather day, I’m not complaining. We’ve got it pretty good here, and if Denver wants to celebrate, I say she’s earned it.
Let’s celebrate 303 style. Wanna crack open a beer with me?
