Smokey Beef Brisket Sandwich
Low and slow is the best way to tenderize this cut of meat. Take a peek to make sure there is plenty of liquid in the roaster all the way through cooking.

- 4 lb (2 kg) Ontario beef brisket
- 1 tsp (5 mL) steak spice
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil, divided
- 6 slices Ontario side bacon, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 cup (250 mL) beer, such as amber ale
- 1 cup (250 mL) barbecue sauce
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) brown sugar
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) apple cider vinegar
- 8 soft rolls, such as Kaiser buns
- 8 slices cooked Ontario bacon
- 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) prepared coleslaw
- Season the brisket all over with steak spice. Heat the 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in a large skillet set over high heat. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until well-browned. Transfer brisket to a roasting pan.
- Reduce heat to medium. Cook bacon, onions and garlic for 5 to 8 minutes or until softened. Add to roasting pan along with beer, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and 1 cup (250 mL) water.
- Roast, covered, in 325°F (160 °C) oven for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until brisket is fork tender. Check brisket in last hour of cooking to ensure there is liquid in the bottom. Add 1 cup (250 mL) of water, if needed. (There should always be at least 1-inch/2.5 cm of liquid in the bottom of the roasting pan)
- Remove brisket and let rest. Strain and remove fat from sauce. Simmer sauce for 10 to 20 minutes to reduce.
- Slice brisket against the grain. Layer in brisket, sauce, bacon and some coleslaw between rolls. Serve with additional coleslaw.
- For easy slicing, make a day ahead and refrigerate brisket covered. Remove any hardened fat and slice against the grain. Rewarm brisket at 325°F(160 °C) for about 30 minutes or until warmed through.
- If ordering brisket from your butcher, ask for the double portion of the beef brisket. Though it is less lean it is juicier when cooked.
