“Bloody Mary Beef” from “Jamie’s Comfort Food”


In theory, we should have LOVED this, but it didn’t work out quite that way. We didn’t love it, but we didn’t hate it either. It was, in the immortal words of Nicholas, “In the middle.”

We love brisket. In fact, I made a the Beef Rendang recipe from “Save with Jamie,” which used leftover brisket. That brisket recipe was a winner. This one? Not so much.

I can’t really put my finger on what went wrong. The bloody mary mix, which serves as the gravy is delicious, though in my case it was a bit thin. The brisket was fine but wasn’t spectacular. Maybe in a nutshell that’s what’s wrong here: It’s Fine. But are you really going to go to the trouble of making something that’s simply “fine”? No.

Would I make this again? Maybe, but probably not. It’s definitely not going to make it into our usual Sunday Roast Lunch rotation, and I can’t see going back to it on the odd afternoon either.

If you’re curious what this is like and want to make it yourself, Jamie has helpfully posted the recipe on his website, which you can see by clicking through this sentence.
