I have been wanting to try Farmgirl Follies and put it in my “to make file” 10 months ago. Procrastination …no, not really! My usual brisket recipe is good, and it’s hard not to make it. At the same time, it’s fun to try new flavors with old favorites!. I see I printed the recipe off from
The recipe says 2 ponds of Brisket; I made 3 pounds. I also adjusted the liquid ingredients to one and a half times the original.
3 pounds Beef Brisket
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper or more if you like
1 large Onion, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
8 oz Chili Sauce
1 ~ 12 oz Beer – I used Michelob Light
1 1/2 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 1/2 T Brown Sugar, packed
Combine garlic and pepper; spread evenly over brisket.
Separate onion into rings; arrange over brisket.
Combine chili sauce, beer, Worcestershire sauce and sugar; pour over brisket and onions.
I worked up to this step the night before and let the entire thing sit in the fridge overnight.
The next morning I put the brisket in the oven at 225* and let it work its magic all day. My house smelled so good when I got home from work!
Transfer brisket to cutting board. Slice on the bias across the grain.
I didn’t get any pictures of my brisket, but the Farmgirl gave a great tutorial ofat her site.

I saw this recipe for Crusty Bread on Pinterest. Being the little bread baker I am, I had to give it a try as this recipe looked good and sounded easy.
What I was not ready for was the flow of “I LOVE this bread” comments I got from the Rancher. He wondered why I was holding out so long before making this kind of bread. The flavor tastes different from any other bread I have made before. The crust has a true crustiness to it and the inside is tender.
The first time making this bread recipe, I followed the directions exactly. I baked it in my 4 QT stainless steel salad master pot. Last weekend I tried the recipe again. I made one loaf vs. dividing the batter in half. It’s Monday and the bread is over half gone. I am excited to try some of the fun flavor suggestions. This bread pairs well with brisket and makes a great sandwich!
