What is brisket? Brisket is an old cut that’s been served and enjoyed for centuries. The Old English word for the cut is “brushk.” It was a delicacy that the Vikings enjoyed very much.

In today’s article, we’re going to take a closer look at the brisket, discover where it comes from, and the best ways to cook it.
