About

One thing that processed, industrialized food has going for it is that it’s always presented in an easy-to-consume package. A burger in a bun. A burrito wrapped in a tortilla. A pizza slice with sturdy crust. A sandwich between two slices of bread. Nothing to fall apart, to require a fork or to spoil quickly. No fuss, no muss.

Real food, on the other hand, isn’t as convenient. It usually requires a Tupperware, a fork, a pile of napkins. It spoils quickly and requires refrigeration. Not the most convenient for say a picnic or a packed lunch.

Today’s recipe breaks the stereotype – hooray! This Beef Brisket Sandwich is sturdy, packable, portable, and convenient


Serves 8

4 pounds beef brisket, trimmed, cut into 6 pieces

1 teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 can (12 oz) can Zevia Cola

1  (14 oz) can crushed tomatoes

Baby Arugula

sliced dill pickles


Directions
1

Wash and trim the brisket, cutting it into 6 equal pieces. Pat dry.

2

Combine the salt, pepper and chili powder in a bowl. Rub all over the brisket pieces.

3

Place the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, brown each piece of brisket, each side for 7 minutes. Place the brisket pieces in the slow cooker.

4

Deglaze the skillet with the can of zevia, then add to the slow cooker along with the can of crushed tomatoes. Cook on high for 6 hours.

5

Pour the juices into a 1 quart glass measuring glass. Once the fat has risen to the top, skim off and discard. Remove any fat from the brisket and shred the meat. Heat the juices in a skillet until bubbling. Remove from heat and add the shredded brisket, let it sit for 10 minutes, allowing the meat to soak up the juices.

6

Assemble the sandwiches on flat bread with arugula, dijon mustard and plenty of sliced dill pickles. Enjoy!
