We smoked a brisket the other day and have been cutting thin slices off the slab as needed.  I’ve been heating them in a skillet with a spoonful of water for steam.

I hate it when people tilt the camera like this.  It’s not edgy or smart.

Around here this cucumber and tomato salad with sweet onions is almost always in the fridge.  I added some blanched broccoli to this batch as a change of pace.  It’s in a simple vinaigrette of seasoned rice vinegar and oil with a sprinkle of garlic powder, onion powder, and thyme.

The gravy for this one is made with broth, milk, heavy cream and buttermilk.  The last two because I just had a little left of each and wanted to use them up.It’s thick – I think there is nearly 1/2 cup of flour in the roux.  I managed to collect the chicken fat from the roast chicken and that is what it took to make the roux look right in the sauce pan.
