Whether served as barbecue, corned beef, pastrami, braised beef, or pot roast, brisket has staked a permanent place on the American menu. With great crossover appeal, it can easily make an appearance in other culinary cultures including Korean, German, Thai, British, Pakastani, and Vietnamese cuisine. With St. Patrick’s Day and Passover soon approaching, now is the perfect time for operators to beef up their menus with this versatile product.
