Garlic Barbecue Beef Brisket Recipe & A Delallo Giveaway!

Okay, so you may have noticed my last two Pinspiration in the Kitchen posts have been inspired by pins from the Delallo Pomodoro Fresco Pinterest board.  (Oh, you didn't notice?  Click here for the Chicken Cacciatore with Pomodoro Fresco Tomato Basil sauce.  And here for the 1...2...3 Cheesy Baked Ziti with Pomodoro Fresco Marinara sauce.)  

All of this hype has been leading up to this moment...  A fabulous giveaway sponsored by my wonderful friends at Delallo Italian Marketplace!
A few weeks ago, these lovely jarred sauces came to me in the mail...
These are the Pomodoro Fresco sauces, Delallo's newest pasta sauce line.  These sauces retail for $8.99 each, but you could be the lucky winner of all five of them this week! :)
Yep, that is right.  The entire Pomodoro Fresco line can be yours for free!

Most of you know that I love to make my own pasta sauces from scratch.  But these sauces have changed my mind about jarred pasta sauces (well, at least about Delallo's pasta sauces ;) ).  Look at the ingredient label here for the Delallo Pomodoro Fresco Tomato Basil sauce...
See anything you can't pronounce? ;)

But first, let me share with you all my recipe for Garlic Barbecue Beef Brisket I made using the Pomodoro Fresco Roasted Garlic sauce...
What you will need:
2lb beef brisket or roast
Salt & pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
For the BBQ sauce later:
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp ketchup
A couple of dashes of hot sauce

Start by seasoning the beef brisket with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet.  Brown all sides of the brisket.  Place the chopped onions in a slow cooker, and then all of the rest of the ingredients through the 1/4 cup of brown sugar.  Mix well. 

Add the browned beef brisket fat side up in the sauce in the slow cooker.  Placing the fatty side of the brisket facing up will ensure that the oils from the fats will baste the brisket as the meat slowly cooks in the slow cooker.  Ladle some of the sauce over the brisket.  Cook on Low for 6-7 hours, basting the meat with the sauce every hour or so if you are able to.

When the brisket is finished slow cooking, add 3-4 ladles of the sauce from the slow cooker into a small sauce pan over medium-high heat.  Whisk in the Dijon mustard, brown sugar, ketchup, and hot sauce.  Continue cooking, whisking frequently until the BBQ sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes.

Next, remove the brisket from the slow cooker and place on a large cutting board.  Shred the beef using a knife and fork, and then return it to the sauce in the slow cooker once shredded.

I served our shredded Garlic Barbecue Beef Brisket on thick crusty bread and topped it with a generous amount of the homemade BBQ sauce and slices of pickle.  

Now are you ready to win all five of the new Delallo Pomodoro Fresco sauces??

    1. I agree! I usually make my own sauce for that very reason. But I was so excited when I read the ingredient labels for all the Pomodoro Fresco sauces- no weird preservatives or chemicals at all. I was pleasantly surprised, and all the sauces have been so delicious too! :)

  17. These sauces look amazing! I like to make my own sauces (but sometimes I'm lazy and I buy the jarred sauces) but these look like something that I wouldn't mind using on a regular basis! I think I'd be most excited to use the roasted garlic or spicy sauce! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! :)
