Talk about a delicious sandwich! This is a Rachael Ray recipe that I love! Wait until the Superbowl crowd sees this. This is made mostly in a crock pot - so you can start it in the morning and forget about it until you're ready for lunch or dinner. Enjoy!
Place a large skillet over medium heat with about 1 tablespoon EVOO. Add the bacon to the pan and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan with a slotted spoon and reserve on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Return the skillet to medium high heat with the bacon fat. Season both sides of the brisket with salt and pepper, and sear on all sides until golden brown, 3 - 4 minutes per side
While the meat is searing, add the reserved bacon, onion, garlic, bay leaf, mushrooms, beefstock or broth, thyme, Worcestershire sauce and honey to the crock bot. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Add the seared meat to the pot and cover. Cook on high for 5 hours or low for 7-8 hours, until the meat is tender.
Thinly slice the brisket. To serve, dunk bread into sauce and top with brisket, Swiss cheese, cooked veggies and more juice.
