Why is Brisket perfect for Pie?
Brisket is smoked at low temperatures for hours. This slow cooking method helps in penetrating the flavor of the rub you are using. We personally love the Texas-styled BBQ Brisket, and it is not just perfect as its own but also exceptional for the pie.
Since the brisket is fully cooked to soak in all of its juices to be tender and delicious, making a pie out of it is quick and easy. You do not have to prepare a lot for the pie since all of the flavors are already there. It just needs a perfect pairing like the flaky crust to complement the tender meat or melted cheese to cut through the juices of the brisket and the jalapenos and chilli to give that delicious flare that you were looking for!
Tips for making the best Jalapeno Chilli Brisket Pie
Making a Brisket pie is easy, but it still needs few tips to make it into perfection. Here are the few tips and hacks that will make the brisket pie easier for you to make, especially during the week:
- Use Brisket dripping to make the pie filling. It will elevate the entire dish without adding a lot. If not, we are already using beef stock.
- If the beef stock is making the filling too salty, add Worcestershire sauce teaspoon by teaspoon to control the saltiness.
- Feel free to use any vegetables you like but to make it quick, and we are using pre-cut frozen vegetables since they are readily available and require no hustle.
- If you do not have time to cut those notorious jalapenos and chili, but a jar of pre-cut of them. They are affordable and way better than the pain and itchiness of cutting them.
