Default Trying something a little different...

Okay, typically I have some wasted bits and pieces after a cook that are either too dry or or too strong or hard as a rock, etc. I usually keep these for use in beans or sauces, but I wanted to try something a little different.

I made a brisket yesterday, and I had quite a bit of unusable pieces from the ends that were just absolutely like leather. Bad enough where I thought about throwing them out as I already have better "waste" pieces in the freezer. Then I decided to try something a little different.

I took half of a large onion, diced, along with four garlic cloves, finely chopped, and sauteed them over medium heat with a lot of butter. When the onions became translucent, I added my chopped up waste brisket and cooked with the lid on for a few to try and rehydrate the meat some:




It worked pretty well, so I tossed the whole mixture with a little sauce to coat everything and cooked for a few more minutes:




Looked pretty good, and tasted really good...but now what the heck do I do with it? I took a trip to the store to look for ideas, and I came across some egg roll wrappers, and it was on!








About 4 minutes in the fryer at 375 degrees:




Hmm...needs some dipping sauce (just Ranch with some of my rub mixed in)




Done just in time for Monday Night Football!




I was really happy with how these came out, and they were a big hit. Great finger food for the game. I need to get ambitious more often!

Though I'm not a fan of ranch, the rest looks like a great use of "unusable" brisket!
