Smokey Beef Brisket Sandwiches… TO DIE FOR

18 Oct

A couple of weeks ago for Sunday night supper, I made a delicious beef brisket in my crock pot. I then toasted wheat buns, put the shredded meat on the bun, topped with bleu cheese slaw from whole foods, and white barbecue sauce from BB’s. The combo of all these things made these sandwiches mouth watering! These were great served with baked beans and my home-made sweet potato fries (recipe coming tonight)!


Beef Brisket Recipe:

makes 8 servings

1 beef brisket, about 3 lbs.

1 tablespoon of smoked paprika

1 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of black pepper ( I doubled this)

1 large onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, chopped ( I used more)

1 can of stewed tomatoes (I used diced)

1 can of reduced sodium beef broth

1/4 cup of cider vinegar

1/4 cup of brown sugar

8 hamburger rolls

coleslaw (again I used Whole Foods Bleu cheese coleslaw)


1) Coat slow cooker bowl with cooking spray.

2)Season the brisket with paprika, salt, and pepper. Place in slow cooker. Scatter onion and garlic over brisket. Combine tomatoes, broth, vinegar, and sugar. Pour over brisket.

3) Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 hours or LOW for 9 hours.

4) Remove meat from slow cooker and cool slightly. Slice or shred and stir into sauce.

5) Remove brisket with a slotted spoon and serve on the rolls with pickles and cole slaw if desired.

Festive Caramel/ Chocolate Apples

18 Oct

Okay so I totally admit that I stole this idea/ recipe for Caramel/Chocolate apples from my friend Lanesia.

Last Saturday their family came over to watch the Auburn game (War Eagle), and we had an AMAZING feast! I made Bacon Swiss dip as an app, and a Bartlett Red pear salad with home-made raspberry vinegarette dressing. Lanesia and her husband David bought an entire beef tenderloin and had it cut into the most delicious steaks. She also brought twice baked potatoes and amazing caramel apples. (She definitely outdid herself!)

I didn’t get an actual recipe from her, as far as step by step instructions.

Her apples looked like they came from a gourmet chef, mine looked like they came from a 5 year old, but at least they tasted just as wonderful! (I should have taken a picture of hers! 🙂  BTW- my caramel didn’t go on as thick for some reason… I am going to do more investigating about this and figure out a remedy! Pictured below: my copycat apples…


Melt 100 caramels with 4 tablespoons of water. This will make 10 apples.

Cover apples in the caramel. Let set up for an hour on wax paper in the fridge.

Heat chocolate on the stove in a double boiler (careful not to scorch). I used Ghiradelli morsels.

Dip half of the apple, and cover in sprinkes. Allow to cool in fridge…Voila!

Lanesia’s tip was to use Granny Smith apples if you like the sour/sweet combo, and use red delicious if you like a more traditional caramel apple!
