I came up with this sandwich on a whim. I had leftover brisket, and I wanted a different kind of sandwich. After four tries this is what finally emerged from the skillet. The “secret sauce” is my own invention, but feel free to experiment with other spices and condiments. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

  • 2
    For this recipe, a good cast-iron skillet would be nice; however, and good frypan will do nicely.
  • 3
    Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  • 4
    In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the “secret sauce” together.
  • 5
    Fold in the brisket, and combine.
  • 6
    Add the butter to a pan over medium-high heat.
  • 7
    When the foaming subsides, add the brisket, and shape into a patty, the size of your bun.
  • 8
    Allow it to sit, undisturbed in the pan until a crust forms, about 3 – 4 minutes.
  • 9
    Carefully flip, and allow to cook an additional 2 – 3 minutes.

    Chef’s Note: The brisket will not be firm like a hamburger patty, so be careful when flipping.
  • 11
    Chef’s Note: What you will have is a brisket burger that is crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside.
