Beef Brisket and Corn Bread

Our week in Texas came to a close with an authentic meal, some fun “kid-inspired” decorations, costumes and an old familiar tune.

 

 

 

Tallinn made some little signs

Austin Week Dinner Menu

Oven Roasted Beef Brisket

Skillet Corn Bread

Texas-style Caesar Salad

We all loved the beef brisket spices and enjoyed dipping our meat into the juice that was left over.   We make skillet corn bread quite often, typically with sage and honey, but this standard version,  which we adapted a bit, was also a hit.  And the salad, amazing!  I absolutely loved the cilantro caesar dressing that accompanied it and next time would possibly add some homemade cornbread croutons to the mix.

Tallinn had a soccer game shortly afterward so we didn’t get to enjoy a dessert round, but if we had, a pecan pie would have been a great addition to this delicious meal.
 
Thank you Austin and Texas for a fun week learning about
cowboys,
 
This was a fun way to use some leather scraps I’ve been saving for just such an occasion.

 
rodeos (lots of fun videos to watch on Youtube)
 
and a lot of Southern fun.
 
For more learning resources on Texas we found a great site with lots of printables perfect for children who are reading and writing. (Tallinn loved doing these pages!)
 
Enjoy!

  1. You’re so creative and you have such a nice family! If it’s not too much trouble, you should post the recipe links for the foods you make!

  2. Hopefully the links are working. Check in the paragraph section of my description….click on “standard version” for the cornbread and “salad” for the salad recipe. For some reason I can’t find the recipe for the beef brisket that we used but there are several beef brisket recipes on the food network to choose from. I’ll look again :).

  3. Okay Paula,
    I figured out what the problem was. The links should be available now.

  4. cool, thanks!
