Leftover Magic: Brisket Sammiches

As promised, a leftovers revamp of Tuesday night’s Oven Roasted Brisket.

Since the brisket had tons of flavorful cooking juices in the pan, my first thought on how to utilize the leftovers was roast beef sandwiches with au jus sauce.

I saved the cooking juices in a small container and refrigerated them until dinner last night. The fat had solidified at the top, so it was really easy to skim off — reducing some of the fat in this meal! Heat the cooking juices in a pan, if you did not have much left, you can always add a little chicken stock to the mix!

Toast the bread of your choice — I crisped up a hot dog bun from Gluten Free Houston, it was just perfect! I will definitely be using these hot dog buns as sandwich rolls again!!

Reheat your brisket (either in the oven or in the microwave), carefully shred it up and place atop your bread.

This sandwich was supposed to be topped with a slice of melted mozzarella cheese, but unbeknownst to me, the fiancé had eaten the last of it. Sooo, we sprinkled them with a little bit of parmesan cheese which worked out great as well. If you choose to top it off with some cheese, place your sandwich back in the oven for a few minutes to melt it into perfection!

You may find it helpful to wrap your finished sandwich in foil to help hold it together as you eat it.

Serve with a pickle spear and chips, steamed veggies or a salad!
