I’ll be frank with you. There is almost never a time when I will pass on the chance to put beer in, on, over, and with anything that I cook. Brisket is no exception. In fact, I’m fairly certain that the first time I discovered how amazing cooking with beer is was when I made my very first brisket for Rosh Hashana.
Naturally, I pass along my simple and delicious beer brisket recipe to anyone who asks (and many do) so it seems timely to go ahead and share this with my fellow jew-ish readers. This recipe is quite easy and you can substitute the beer that I recommend with another if you have a preference. I would only warn against using a beer that is too light or overly hoppy, otherwise you will either not have much flavor come through (if you go too light) or add far too much bitterness (if you go too hoppy). Otherwise, go nuts and use whatever beer you love!
Cook Time: 4 Hrs
4 Hrs 10 Min (if you have a larger brisket, you may want to cook it longer)

So, the sad news is, the original video I wanted so badly to share with you all today was taken down:
But, never fear. You can still catch clips of this gem on YouTube in this exclusive (read: hilarious) interview with Shaun Sterling himself.
This kid had some serious matzah balls back in 1992.

A few years ago, while living in Jerusalem, I had the fortune to work with a professor of folklore at Hebrew University. One of her projects was a paper on bumper stickers. At the time, I thought this seemed sort of trivial. What do bumper stickers have to do with serious academia, ethnology and folklore?
As Hadag Nachash has proven with their hit song “The Sticker Song,” short slogans say a lot about Israelis. Curious, because we don’t have this culture in America to the same degree, and certainly not in the Jewish American community. For my professor’s project, an interviewee confessed that she made a game of reading people’s bumper stickers as she drove, and guessing what the drivers looked like. For instance, when she saw a right-wing sticker, she would predict a religious-looking driver, and so on.
While living there, I guess I couldn’t appreciate the significance of this cultural communication.…

After a brief cool-off in summer temps here in Seattle, we’re heating back up and, yet again, looking for ways to escape the oven and make some tasty dishes with our fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs. Here’s another simple, delicious summer side dish from Herbavoracious author, Michael Natkin, which incorporates green garlic and fresh mint. Potato salad is not only a winning addition to any summer barbeque, but making one that is unique and appealing (not a gloppy, mayonnaise-y mess) is essential.
This recipe is sure to accomplish your goal of avoid your oven and impressing your friends at any upcoming weekend barbeque. Happy cooking!
If you're out and about doing jew-ish kinds of stuff, whip out your phone and get some pix. Better yet, make a movie, then share it with us at email@example.com.
