Make-ahead Monday: 1 classic beef brisket, 3 divine dinners

Here's the great irony about brisket: it may be one of the least tender cuts of beef, but when you braise it or roast it slowly, it comes out soft, tender and juicy.

Plus, it's incredibly versatile, meaning it lends itself perfectly to being used in leftovers.

Food and lifestyle expert Jamie Geller is here to help home cooks create a classic brisket that will leave your entire family clamoring for more. And more. And more.

So what's the biggest mistake people make when tackling a brisket? According to Geller, they rush the process.

"Cook it slow and low," said Geller. "It’s a tough cut of meat that turns melt-in-your-mouth soft after a low and slow braise. It’s a comfort food that spans generations, seasons and cultures."
