brisket sandwich

Merry Christmas Eve! Last week I posted a Christmas menu consisting of mushroom bruschetta, beer braised brisket with onion jam, and potato gratin. Now that the holidays are over if you’re looking for a way to use up leftovers, look no further! I have a dish that uses components from several dishes to create one phenomenal sandwich. I present, beer braised sandwich with melted provolone, sauteed cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and onion jam!

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

Just like Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches, this creation combines the best of Christmas dishes to make one tasty meal. If you didn’t prepare the beer-braised brisket, you can prepare it just for this sandwich, it’s well worth it! Follow the steps on the recipe up to step 2, up to the point where you braise for 4 hours. Shred the meat and use for your sandwich.

Now that you have your beef and onion jam, half of the sandwich is already done! Just top with the sauteed cherry tomatoes, provolone and leftover mushroom bruschetta. If you rather skip the mushroom bruschetta, simply saute sliced mushrooms and it will be just as tasty.

This braised brisket sandwich is the king of all leftover sandwiches! The brisket is incredibly tender already but paired with tart tomatoes, sweet onion jam, savory mushrooms and a melted slice of cheese…I drool just thinking about it! If you didn’t prepare the dishes required to make this sandwich, I suggest you prepare them just to make this creation, it’s worth it!
