I love Brisket!
Brisket fried rice combines my love for two amazing foods. I mean I love beef in all shapes and forms but there is something special about brisket. Perhaps it’s all the American BBQ videos I watched that romanticized the brisket for me. Perhaps lots of cross section shots of brisket oozing juices. And probably from watching Aaron Franklin’s masterclass as well. The brisket is right up there in my top 3 ways to eat beef.
Now unfortunately brisket was hard to come by in India. However the barbecue scene in India has started to grow and we have a whole bunch of people across the country smoking meats. I’ve eaten brisket in Bangkok and Vietnam and recently some home grown places. This particular brisket I got from Smoke Culture by Steve from Kochi. Of course when I say beef I mean waterbuffalo or whatever is legal in my state.
Anyway I had a lot of brisket and I had some left over rice and so I created this brisket fried rice.
Fried Rice for days!
You can turn anything into fried rice. It’s a great way to use up left overs. Of course it’s not considered a healthy food but that’s not true. I’ve made this epic anabolic, high protein fried rice that you can eat everyday. It’s about finding the balance between the protein, fat and carbs. At home you get to control the calories and macros based on your dietary needs.
