Aug 24, 2015 05:06AM ● Published by Family Features

(Family Features) Although brisket is generally regarded as a cool weather dish, you may be surprised how this ultimate comfort food works in delicious recipes that help you hang on to the fading days of summer.

A traditional Barbecued Beef Brisket prepared low and slow over a charcoal grill is sure to be a crowd pleaser for a backyard tailgate or a casual gathering with friends. Leftovers can help warm up a cool morning with a decadent serving of Barbecue Benedict, and you can look forward to a Grilled Greek Salad Pita with Beef Brisket for a tasty midday meal.

As any grill master knows, achieving grilling greatness begins with a charcoal fire. These recipes, created by world champion pitmaster Chris Lilly, showcase how Kingsford® Charcoal can help you achieve an authentic smoky flavor that will delight the taste buds of your family and friends. Each briquet contains natural ingredients and real wood for a delicious cookout every time.

Barbecue Benedict

Ingredients

  • 1 white onion cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • Onion Marinade
  • Barbecue Benedict Sauce
  • 3 English muffins cut in half
  • 1 pound leftover beef brisket
  • 6 poached eggs
  • Onion Marinade:
  • 9 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 6 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Barbecue Benedict Sauce:
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons of your favorite KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce

Preparation

  1. In small bowl, mix onion marinade ingredients. Pour marinade into resealable plastic bag and add onion strips. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. For sauce, place egg yolks, vinegar and water into stainless steel bowl and vigorously whip until mixture is thickened and doubled in volume. Place bowl over sauce pan containing barely simmering water (just below boil), making sure bottom of bowl does not touch water. Whisk continuously, making sure eggs don’t get too hot or they will scramble. Very slowly drizzle melted butter into mixture while whisking rapidly until mixture thickens and doubles in volume. Remove from heat and stir in remaining sauce ingredients.
  3. Build charcoal fire for direct grilling. Place onion strips in grill basket and cook directly over hot coals (approximately 450°F), stirring often for 5 minutes or until onions brown and start to soften. Remove onions from grill and set aside.
  4. Place English muffin halves directly over hot coals for 2 minutes or until toasted. Remove each from grill and top with leftover beef brisket, grilled onions and a poached egg. Drizzle with Barbecue Benedict Sauce.
