Brisket Grilled Cheese

Chef David Gauthier brings us some of his famous brisket from Smoky Rose to make grilled cheese sandwiches. 

Brisket Grilled Cheese

1 (3-pound) beef brisket, trimmed of fat
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer
3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). 

Season the brisket on all sides with salt and pepper, and place in a glass baking dish. Cover with a layer of sliced onions. In a medium bowl, mix together the beer, chili sauce, and brown sugar. Pour over the roast. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.

Bake for 3 hours in the preheated oven. Remove the aluminum foil, and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Let the brisket rest and cool slightly before slicing.
