12-hour barbecue beef brisket

"Texas is world-renowned for barbecuing a mean brisket, the flat and fatty slab of meat, cut from the cow's lower chest," says Stone. "Cooking a simply seasoned brisket low and slow on a smoker (or kettle barbecue when barbecuing at home), gradually rendering the gummy white fat while simultaneously infusing smoky flavour into the meat, is a labour of love. Although time-consuming, briskets are not difficult to cook. And while you'll note that this one takes a whopping 12 hours to cook, don't be alarmed if your brisket needs another hour or so - this timing is an approximation, and greatly depends on the size of your brisket and heat of your barbecue." The brisket can also be cooked in an oven (see note).

Coleslaw

"Store-bought and pre-cut coleslaws, and bottled dressings have given the humble slaw a lacklustre rep over the years," says Stone. "Taking a little time (just 10 minutes!) to whip one up yourself reminds us why this salad became popular in the first place. This creamy, crunchy coleslaw comes together in a pinch and can be piled atop a thick piece of brisket or served as a side."

Roast lamb loin with couscous and pumpkin


You'll need

  Lamb 2 rolled loins of lamb (about 600gm each) 1 tbsp thyme leaves 1 kg Japanese pumpkin, seeded and cut into 1cm wedges 2 tbsp olive oil 215 gm (1 cup) mhammas (see note) 2 tbsp currants 1 tsp ground cumin 3 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 2 cups firmly packed flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped 2 green onions, finely chopped 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp red wine vinegar   Yoghurt sauce ½ cup plain yoghurt ¼ cup firmly packed mint leaves, finely chopped 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Open up lamb loins on a work surface, sprinkle with thyme leaves and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then re-roll and tie at 5cm intervals with kitchen string. Place lamb in a roasting pan with pumpkin, drizzle with olive oil, season to taste and cook at 200C for 20 minutes for medium rare, or until cooked to your liking, and pumpkin is tender. Remove and rest, covered loosely with foil for 10 minutes.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, cook couscous in boiling salted water for 7 minutes or until soft, drain, then add currants and cumin and cool slightly. Add anchovies, parsley, green onion, extra-virgin olive oil and vinegar, season to taste and stir to combine.
  • 03
  • For yoghurt sauce place yoghurt in a small bowl, add mint and olive oil, season to taste, then stir to combine.
  • 04
  • Slice lamb into 2cm-thick slices and serve over couscous with pumpkin wedges, drizzle with yoghurt sauce.

Note Mhammas is a lightly toasted Tunisian couscous, larger than regular couscous but smaller than mograbieh (pearl couscous) and is available from Simon Johnson, The Essential Ingredient and other good delicatessens.
