Gear Up For Game Day

Spicy Braised Brisket Sandwiches

(Family Features) - On game day, the food is almost as important as the game itself! So treat your hungry halfbacks to a menu that will win cheers all around.

Serve-yourself sandwiches score high with famished football fans-especially when beef is the star player.  Spicy Braised Brisket Sandwiches team up with beer and chilies to make a zesty filling with just the right amount of heat.
Because brisket is a less tender cut, it needs to simmer gently in a tightly-covered pan until it's fork-tender.  No peeking allowed, or you might be called for a penalty!  Each time the lid is lifted, steam escapes and slows the cooking process.  To get a head start, the beef can be cooked a day in advance, then reheated just before it's time to tackle the sandwiches.

Your game day game plan is a cinch.  Simply shred the cooked beef-easy when it's so tender.  Set up the fixings-crusty rolls, cheese, giardiniera and Roasted Red Pepper Mayonnaise.  Bring out the chilled beverages and get ready to score a touchdown with family and friends!
