Many, many years ago, I worked in Manhattan on the edge of the Garment District, where there were the most wonderful Jewish delis. I enjoyed treating myself to a brisket sandwich every now and then, which was something I had never tasted before. I enjoyed it so much that I had to ask how the brisket was made. This is the approximate recipe I was told. It can be served as a dinner, or sliced and served as sandwiches. Either way, it is a delightful meal. The brisket can be garnished with parsley, cherry tomatoes, pickled peppers, turnips, or stuffed olives.
