Check out our three beef brisket recipes that are SUPER SIMPLE to make and will hit the spot when it comes to pleasing the whole family.
We’ve selected three, easy-to-follow recipes, including a nacho recipe, a cheesy BBQ bites recipe and a sausage roll recipe for you to try at home.
They all focus on beef brisket, a cut that comes from the breast section of the cow that includes the pectoral muscles. This means it’s full of connective tissue and can be tough, but this can be remedied with long, slow cooking to tenderise the meat.
Traditionally, beef brisket is synonymous with overnight cooking in a smoker or tendering the meat over an 8 hour cooking period.
To cut down on time in the kitchen (a lot!) and make cooking simple, you can use our 2 miunte ready-to-heat brisket range. It includes:
- Coffee rubbed pulled beef brisket, with an intriguing hint of coffee and spices
- Spiced pulled beef brisket, perfect for the easy nacho recipe
- Pulled beef brisket with red wine and thyme, ideal for the sausage rolls
Each of the in the ready-to-heat brisket range has been slow-cooked for hours, drawing out its rich flavour and giving the meat a melt-in-the-mouth texture.
Choose grass-fed beef and grass-finished beef
We only sell grass-fed and grass-finished beef because we know that it’s the best way to eat meat. Animals are free to roam just like they would in the wild and eat only grass, making their lifestyle as natural and stress-free as possible.
We don’t use antibiotics or hormones in our meat production — there’s simply no need as free-range, grass-fed cows aren’t raised in crowded spaces where they’re prone to infection, and we don’t hurry the growth process either. This means that the meat on your plate is as healthy and nutritious as it can be.
We also follow the “paddock to plate” way. This is about reducing the distance from the farms where animals are reared to your plate as much as we can. We use our specialised mobile abattoir that go to farms, rather than transporting animals, to minimise stress and food miles.
We don’t buy our beef from abattoirs or wholesale meat suppliers.
We buy livestock direct from local farms where the animals have been raised in a natural environment, fed a healthy diet, and treated humanely. Local farms that raise their animals in this way provide us with the highest quality beef, and we believe that it is important to support these farms.
If you believe in ethical, sustainable and healthy food choices, our grass-fed beef is for you!
Loaded beef brisket nachos
Provenir point end brisket is ideal for this recipe, a cut taken from the lower chest containing more fat that dissolves on slow cooking. This creates an awesome flavour, complemented by the sharp feta and creamy cheddar cheese.
Loaded Beer Braised Brisket Nachos
- Preparation: 2 h
- Cooking: 6 h
- Ready in: 8 h
- 300 g Tortilla chips (or corn chips)
- 200 g Cheddar Cheese (coarsely grated)

- Cheery Tomotes
- Green chilli
- Spring onions
- 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 0.75 tablespoon Brown sugar
- 0.75 tablespoon Cumin (ground)
- 0.75 tablespoon Coriander seeds (ground)
- 3 cloves Garlic (finely chopped)
- 1.5 kg Provenir Point End Brisket

- 400 g Crushed tomatoes (canned )
- 375 ml Lager
- Tomato passata
- 2 Chipotle chillies (finely chopped, or to taste)
Pico de gallo
- For beer-braised brisket, combine mustard, sugar, cumin, coriander seeds and garlic in a bowl and season generously. Rub mixture all over brisket, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
- Preheat oven to 150°C. Scatter onion in a roasting pan and place unwrapped brisket on top.
- Combine remaining ingredients in a jug, season to taste, pour mixture over brisket and cover pan with foil. Braise in oven until fork tender (6½-7 hours), then remove brisket and shred.
- Skim excess fat from the sauce, transfer to a container, add meat and refrigerate for up to 5 days. Warm in a saucepan over medium heat before serving.
Pico de gallo
- For pico de gallo, combine tomatoes and 1 tsp sea salt in a colander and stand for 25-30 minutes to drain.
- Combine in a bowl with remaining ingredients, season and refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Scatter corn chips in a large baking tray, spoon brisket mixture over the top, scatter with cheddar and bake until bubbling (10-15 minutes). Scatter with feta, radish, avocado and coriander, and serve with pico de gallo and lime wedges.
Cheesy BBQ brisket bites
These tasty bites are packed full of flavour and make the perfect party food. They’re really easy to make too, and you can cut down on prep time by using our ready-to-heat beef brisket range and pre-made puff pastry sheets.
CHEESY BBQ BRISKET BITES
- Preparation: 10 min
- Cooking: 15 min
- Ready in: 25 min
- Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly spray 2 24-count mini muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
- Unfold thawed pastries onto a lightly floured surface. Cut each pastry sheet into 36 squares for a total of 72 squares (I use my pizza cutter).
- Add two dough squares perpendicular to each other to 36 muffin cups as illustrated in above photo. (Note, they will fill only half of the second muffin pan).
- Top each dough cup with 1 tablespoon Beef Brisket followed by 2 teaspoons cheese and optional jalapeno slice.
- Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is golden. Wait 5 minutes then remove to a baking rack to cool slightly before eating. Enjoy!
Brisket sausage rolls
This is a delicious variation on the classic sausage roll recipe and is easy and fun to make too. If you’ve got a party or family gathering coming up, make sure these are on the menu!
Red Wine & Thyme Brisket Sausage Rolls
- Set the oven to 180°C. If you are using frozen puff pastry, layout 3 sheet to defrost.
- Place Pulled Beef Brisket with Red Wine & Thyme in the microwave for 1-2 minutes
- Remove the Pulled Beef Brisket with Red Wine & Thyme from the microwave ( careful it will be hot) and pour contents into a large bowl. Add panko bread crumbs to the brisket and mixture together.
- Layout the 3 sheet of puff pastry on a flat bench top.
- Add a third of the brisket mixture to each sheet of pastry in line towards the edge that is closet to you. The brisket should also be laid to so that it reaches each side.
- Roll up the pastry with the brisket inside and slice rolled pastry into bit size pieces.
- Place the sausage rolls on baking tray and cook for 30 – 40 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
- Once cooked, serve with sauce or relish
* We have used our Coffee Rubbed Pulled Beef Brisket, however, our other two ready to heat beef briskets can also be used.
