I told you I’d have something a little bit more fancy from the Bais Yaakov Cookbook! This recipe popped out at me the first time I leafed through the Bais Yaakov Cookbook. I love brisket, and this recipe was so different than anything I’ve made before, I just had to try it.

And the winner is…

I’m used to meat with sweet foods. I mean, I eat kibbe cherry and use apricots and oot in my mechshi. But I really never use duck sauce. It adds a great flavor to the meat, with very little work. The hardest part about this? I thought it would be the rolling of the meat, but that wasn’t too bad. It was the slicing! I need an electric knife. It cooks for a long time, so make sure you have plenty of time when making this dish (candles are at 8:08 next week, so you’ll have some time).
