Brisket Leftovers?

What can you do with leftover smoked brisket besides sandwiches?

We had our family gathering on Saturday to fit with everyone’s schedule. Now I’m left with a bunch of brisket and we are tired of brisket sandwiches.

Does anyone know of a recipe that uses leftover smoked beef?

Hash - like corned beef hash or roast beef hash or red flannel hash (made with added beets). It's a mess of diced left over corned beef (for example), potato and onion seasoned and browned in a skillet or cast iron pan. It's a common breakfast here in the northeast served with a couple of poached or fried eggs on top.

When I make hash browns I bake my potatoes the night before and stick them in the frig.

The next morning I cube them while I sweat my onions and peppers in some bacon grease and when the vegetables are soft I add the potatoes, turn up the heat and cook them until they are warmed though and are getting brown around the edges.

Is this how you cook hash or is it more like a stew?


Edited to add: I made Flautas tonight as LadyCook suggested and they were very good.

I have enough left for maybe one more meal…I may give the hash a try.

Yum! I love hash of any kind. Red flannel is tasty. Any hash I've ever had has been medium-moist, not dry. It's especially good with a poached or sunny-side-up fried egg on top as Andy M. mentioned. I could eat hash for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Betty, check out this Food Network recipe for hash. You could adapt to your purposes.

Thank you Miss Katie for the recipe link; that explains very well how to do it. I'll definitely give this a try...this sounds like something DH would really like. He's a real meat and potatoes kind of guy.

I'm very happy to be of service. Hash might just become a "favorite" in your household. It is in ours, especially for breakfast during the cold weather months.

Fritters are pretty popular at our house
Diced brisket, diced onion, diced tomato in a thick batter, shallow fry or grill in spoon size lots

This is a good thread for me.
I was just looking at two big briskets in the freezer a couple days ago.... then I asked myself, what will I do with all the leftovers?

Guy Fieri makes a bbq sushi at Tex Wasabi; I did a variation of that, and it's very well received.

Get sushi rice and tapioca paper (spring roll wraps). Lightly wet the tapioca paper to soften it, and put a layer of sushi rice on it. Place chopped brisket in the middle, and roll it all up. Cut into 3/4" pieces and top each piece with a dollop of barbecue sauce.

It's good, and you actually eat less meat that way; 1-1 1/2 ounces is enough for the whole roll.

Use for filling for some sort of the dough things. Like Ravioly, Won Tons, Pirogy, Knishes.
There is another Ukrainian dish, mashed potato filled with ground meat and then fried. Yum.
