I am, however, hesitant to share this recipe (or even count it as a recipe) because as you are about to see, it's so easy. To make up for that, I'm going to tell you how I cooked the entire dinner in hopes that makes things tad more impressive.
The Boy from Texas Ranking (brisket only): 5/5
The Boy from Texas Comments: We should have this more often. Throw this in with some eggs and wrap it in a tortilla and we'll be talkin' for breakfast.
Claude's brisket sauce (buy it in the BBQ aisle)
Thaw brisket. Trim fat. Put brisket in roaster pan. Pour Claude's brisket sauce over brisket. (I don't know exactly how much.....be generous.) Place in fridge overnight to marinade. Cook in oven on 300 degrees for 6 (or more) hours.
Russett potatoes (I usually do about 1 potato for each person)
Sour cream (optional)
Grated cheese (optional)
Peel potatoes and boil until soft. Drain and return to pan. Add milk and butter---you just sort of have to eye ball this, but remember, you can always add more, you can't take it out. Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Beat with mixer for 1-2 minutes until creamy and smooth. Serve with your favorite toppings (I like just a bit of sour cream myself, but you can add in anything---cheese, bacon bits, chives, whatever).
Corn on the Cob
Ears of corn--1 per person. (My mother in law brought us fresh sweet corn she picked from the field that morning....I'd highly recommend that)
Shuck corn. Place in boiling water and boil until kernels are soft (doesn't take long, less than 5 minutes). Serve with butter, salt and pepper.
