I’ve been gone for far too long and have really missed keeping up with meals, being inventive, and just having a good time with food in general. For health reasons I have had to make a few changes to my menu at the house but really do feel better than ever. Usually my breakfast consists of two eggs, some kind of meat, and a couple slices of tomato but for some reason this morning I actually didn’t want breakfast food so I got a little crazy.
A while back I made a cajun brisket which turned out to be absolutely perfect, it was tender and delicious. Well, after I sent half of the brisket to my Dad he decided that he wanted to give brisket a try and I have to admit, I think my Pops has some freakin skill! This brisket turned out to be really good for a first shot at brisket and after chilling over night would make a fine meal the next day.
So, all of that being said, this is the crazy plate of doom that I created this morning and it was all I could have hoped for. This was just going to be brisket and mushrooms but I just kept adding stuff and it turned out to be really awesome.
I’m not gonna show the whole brisket process, I’ll save that for another post, just keep in mind if ya ever have brisket the next morning it’s great with eggs or even like this.
Here’s what ya need:
3 cups cooked brown rice (diabetes demands it be brown for me)
A few ounces of brisket sliced (I didn’t weigh it I just started slicing)
1 large tablespoon of “fake” butter (trying to be somewhat healthy here)
1 can sliced mushrooms
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup water
And what to do:
Melt the fake butter in a sautee pan, and add the brisket, all we are doing here is getting it warmed through since it should be all smoked up. The upside to doing this first is that it releases some of the flavor from the brisket into the butter, mmmmmmm. Ok, now add the mushrooms, tomatos, can of cream of mushroom soup, and water and bring to boil uncovered. Once boiling reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes which will help to thicken up the sauce around the brisket.
Place a healthy heaping over some rice and enjoy. If you use enough brisket this should actually feed 3-4 people if they are all focused on healthy portions like I have been forced to be haha.
