1. Chadol Doenjang Jjigae (Soybean Stew)
Chadol doenjang jjigae is a delicious and hearty Korean stew made with beef brisket, doenjang (fermented soybean paste), and vegetables. It is perfect for a winter meal! It packs loads of veggies into one dish, and the beef brisket is so tender it melts in your mouth. Serve with gochujang sauce (similar to sriracha) and kimchi, or even make a variety of banchan (Korean side dishes) to compliment the stew.
2. Loaded Fries
Loaded fries and brisket are sure to please any crowd, no matter the occasion. So take your favorite fries and load them up with all the fixings. We like to top ours off with shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, green onions, and plenty of juicy brisket. If you want to get creative, you could even add a fried egg on top. Now that’s a meal fit for a king or queen!
3. Brisket Burgers
Another fantastic way to enjoy your brisket is by making burgers! This is an excellent option if you have leftovers from a cookout or barbecue. You need to shred the brisket and add toppings of your choice. Sour cream or guacamole would be great additions to these burgers!
Have you ever enjoyed a Shake Shack burger? Then you’ll have already enjoyed this dish, as their burgers are famous for containing brisket. According to Serious Eats, the Shake Shack burger is 50% sirloin, 25% chuck, and 25% brisket.
Everyone loves tacos, and brisket tacos are no exception! Brisket is perfect for taco nights because it’s packed with flavor and can be easily shredded.

A little bit of chilly powder or cumin in the brisket rub adds an extra depth of flavor that takes these tacos to the next level.

5. Vietnamese Noodle Soup
This is a traditional soup made with brisket, but it can easily be adapted to suit your taste. The broth is usually made with beef stock, onions, and ginger. You can add any vegetables you like, such as carrots, celery, or mushrooms. The noodles are cooked in the broth and then topped with thinly sliced brisket and green onions. This soup is hearty and filling, and the brisket gives it a unique flavor that you won’t find in any other soup.
Yes, you read that correctly. Pizza topped with brisket is a heavenly combination. The fatty goodness of the brisket pairs perfectly with the tomato sauce and cheese on a pizza. Give it a try next time you’re in the mood for something different!
7. Frito Pie
This dish is popular in Texas, and for a good reason. It’s a deconstructed chili dog with Fritos instead of a hot dog bun. To make a Frito pie, layer some Fritos in a bowl, top with chili, and add your brisket. Or you could use the brisket meat in place of ground beef in my Walking Taco Casserole recipe.
