Beef cooking tips:

• The secret is simple: cook it long and slow, tightly covered. The steam created ensures fork-tender, moist beef.

• To determine doneness, insert a fork into the brisket; the beef is fork-tender when fork inserts without resistance and releases easily.

• Always carve brisket across the grain into thin slices.
