A brisket might be considered a secondary cut of beef, but with Colin’s recipe, that cooks it to melt-in-your-mouth tenderness, it might become your favourite dinner. Combined with some fresh garden vegetables, lots of stock and cooked all in one pot, this dish is rich in flavour, easy to cook and great value for money.
