Left Over Brisket.... What do you make?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Last Weekend Marty smoked a 13 lb Packer Brisket, Smokie Okie Style, and wow was that good!! http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8956

Well I wasn't really sure what to make last night so I decided to do the same thing that I do with left over buffalo roast that we make. I warmed up the brisket in its own juices and used a plastic 2 prong fork to break the bigger pieces... which wasn't really needed... the stuff just falls apart. Then made up some gravy and mashed potatoes. So we had hot beefs... I mean Hot Smokie Okie Beef's. That kicked the butt out of the buffalo roast and that was darn good. Marty was going to post this last night but he had to helpings and was sleeping in about 15mins after he finished.

I like to cut the big hunks of fat off and use it in pinto beans. Also shred some brisket and throw it in there too. MMMMmmmmmMMM. I always make pintos the day after a brisket smoke.

The wife and I make Taco's or Burritos with left over brisket or smoked chuck roast.
Also forgot, I made some stuffed poblano chilis once with leftover Brisket and Chihuahua cheese. Sort of like a giant ABT' They were great!

Somewhere around here I have posted a recipe for Shredded Beef Enchaladas. I'll find the link and post it here.



1 chuck or arm roast (4-6 lb.)
2 envelopes enchilada sauce mix
1 lg. onion, diced

2 small cans of diced green chilies
1 tbsp. oil
2 doz. flour tortillas (8" size)
1 lb. shredded Colby cheese or Colby/Jack cheese
1/4 cup water (if using option #2)


  1. Season roast with salt and pepper and smoke to an internal temperature of 180 deg. F. or until beef shreds easily. Shred beef and set aside.
  2. Sauté onion in oil until tender and then stir 1/2 of the onion into shredded beef. Add green chilies to the beef.
  3. Prepare envelopes of enchilada sauce mix according to directions. Stir 1/2 of the sauce mix into shredded beef to moisten. Stir reserved onion into remaining sauce. Divide the remaining sauce in half (half of this sauce will be poured into the bottoms of the baking pan, and the remaining half of the sauce will be poured over the top of the rolled enchiladas).
  4. Lightly oil two 12X9 inch baking pans and evenly coat the bottom of the pans with the 1st half of the remaining sauce.
  5. Fill each tortilla with approximately 3 tablespoons of beef mixture. Roll and place seam side down in pans; 12 enchiladas per pan. When all are rolled, pour remaining sauce evenly over the tops of the enchiladas and generously cover with cheese.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. If using glass baking dishes, reduce baking time to 20-35 minutes, or bake at 325 degrees for 30-45 minutes.
Season roast with salt and pepper and smoke for 2 to 3 hours. (At this point you can refrigerate the roast and finish this dish several days later.) Place roast in crock pot with 1/4 cup water. Cook on low heat for 4-5 hours or until tender. Shred beef mixture.

Continue with Steps 2 through 6 from Option #1.

Enjoy!! icon_mrgreen.gif

Sometimes we make hash for breakfast with taters, onions and bellpepper. Right Mike and Joe?

Sometimes, we just have more brisket.

Our favorite is open face sliced brisket on texas toast and enough au jus to make the bread nice and gooey.

I came across a recipe called beirocks and made alot of changes. All they are are filled bread hand pies sorta like hot pockets or a pasty made with bread instead of pastry dough. You shred the meat and shredded cooked cabbage with onions let cool. Make a bread dough recipe I take 1/3 cup of dough and roll it out about 6" in Dia. and put some filling in and fold and seal real good. Lay em on a bakeing sheet and bake at around 350 untill brownish. ( I may have to look that up in my folder). I decided once to make a corned beef shredded it and added sourkraut and swiss cheese and filled the bread rounds there were a few other ones but I would have to look them up. I gotta try dutchs enchiladas I made his beans for my granddaughters fist birthday and people that dont even like beans really liked them now when we go out when you need to bring a dish to pass thats what everyone requests me to bring.
