Five Food Finds about Brisket:

Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal.

The beef brisket is one of the eight beef primal cuts.

The brisket muscles include the superficial and deep pectorals.

As cattle do not have collar bones, these muscles support about 60% of the body weight of standing/moving cattle.

This requires a significant amount of connective tissue, so the resulting meat must be cooked correctly to tenderize the connective tissue.

That's what the doc prescribed, so do it. So glad you are feeling better.

Whoops! Sorry dj, I just rewrote, combined and reposted.

Yes thanks, the meds have helped so much, and it's now 2 1/2 weeks on, that I haven't needed to use the heating pad. ☺ And I still have a week's worth of meds so I'm planning on taking them all the way to the end. That should fix me up!

Donnajames

Pat, somehow your post topped my post. I was asking You how you felt!

patsquire

Home sweet home, pussycat.

I've never tasted brisket but it sounds delicious. The Veteran's Administration health system never lets me stay with a doctor for very long. A couple of years and then they switch me. I've been with my present one 3 1/2 years, but just got word that I'm reassigned. (That's OK, though, 'cause I get to start over with my war stories!) I hope everyone starts feeling better! ☺ ☺ ☺

Donnajames

LOL!! And how are YOU feeling. Are the meds and heating pads helping?

Mischka

A LOT, I agree!

@hippo, have I told you that I made a move to England in 2015? A friend in Milton Keynes suggested that I live with him and we'd write books together. It didn't turn out well, the least of the reasons being that his house was unheated and I thought I'd die of the cold (a record-breakingly bleak October). I had health problems, including the fractures of my radius and ulna, and came armed with prescriptions written by US doctors. I was told that the NHS was terrific. I learned a lot about waiting in doctor and hospital waiting rooms, and heard patients screaming without relief. I moved back to Miami in November, thoroughly chastened and too humiliated to speak to my friends, who weren't ready to forgive me.

Thanks for dropping by, Royal Horse. I respect the hell out of you who deal with the NHS. I also know that everyone here will respect my privacy and not repeat to others my terrible story of moving to, as one friend said in astonishment, "the equivalent of moving to Cleveland, Ohio!" Lol.

Please, honey, stay well and stay out of hospitals. You'd be much better off with a vet. Or, at least this Yankee would have been. :-)

Thanks for letting me rattle on. I hope you're starting a splendid day.

Hugs, Fiona

Yes, don't know about the U.S. but some doctors are not so good when they get older in the UK. Younger docs may lack some experience, but at least they know much more about the latest advnces is understanding of the body and pathologies. And a LOT has been discovrered in the last 40 years!

Not as lucky as you might think. He has his moments .... LOL! Diz

Mischka

Great to hear from you, Diz! One thing about a younger generation of doctors is that they keep up with their reading and know all the new stuff.

You got lucky with your husband. :)

On the brisket: I found a couple of fabulous brisket recipes for instant pot. My husband looked at both recipes; mixed things up and ended cooking it differently (he turned what was supposed to be a rub into a marinade and then cooked it in the marinade while I was at work). End result - the most delicious and tender piece of meat ever! Yum! Diz

I feel your pain. My doctor (a female) is retiring at end of June. We have been passed on to the young lady taking over her practice. I met her a year ago when she was subbing for my doc. Hate it when they look like they are still in college! At least this won't retire before I exit this plane of existence ... LOL - Diz

Mischka

I'll just be making an appt tomorrow -- I don't know if they can X-ray me here in SoMiami, or if I have to go to the branch 20 mi south. But at last things are happening, for both of us!

Donnajames

We won't know until the 23rd? of June when he has his next appt. with the doctor. Actually he will be having 6 ultra sounds tomorrow and 2 more as soon as I can get the appt. Has to be done in two places because this place does not do all of them. Hopefully tomorrow I can set up the next appt. for the final 2 ultras. I will keep you informed.
When do you get your new X-ray of your hand? Keep me posted too. Love ya bunches!

Mischka

"Thorough" is the precise word I used for my doc.

I am so glad to hear about hubby's situation! I know he's been in distress since you and I first talked. I am crossing my fingers for all of us. 20 years of pain is too much for anyone. I keep thinking, "I'll talk, I'll tell you everything I know, just stop the pain!" :-)

We are lucky to live in an age of medical sophistication, more so every day. Please let me know tomorrow night how it goes. Love you!

Donnajames

Sounds like you found a good doctor. Do what she says to do. She will be a great asset later on. I hope she can do something about your hand now!
We found a good one and I think after around 20 years of hubby being in great pain in his legs at night, this doctor finally prescribed something that is actually working to relieve it!!!! We have never had such a thorough doctor. Tomorrow, hubby is getting some ultra-sound tests done on his whole circulatory system--head to toe! This doctor is the first one to request this in all these years.

Mischka

Wow! :) You know, I think I've had brisket only once. Shorty's BBQ, a few miles south of me, is a Miami landmark, one of those barn places with wooden picnic tables, and you sit down with strangers, and they offer a zillion bibs and napkins. Ribs, ears of corn, slaw, every kind of meat you can grill. I went there with a friend of my parents' and he ordered four dinners and ordered me to take home all the left-overs. I thought the BBQ sauce was a bit too sweet, but maybe it's supposed to be. I love picnic food but rarely eat it.

Btw, I went to the doctor today, a regular family doctor new to me, and she took one look at my left hand and said, "We need to X-ray that again. That isn't right." Lovely black lady about half my age with long thin braids and gold all over her hair. I told her about my high blood pressure (my dad and brother are both tall and thin, exercise every day, and are also medicating for high BP), and she said come back tomorrow, we'll do all the bloodwork. And since I'm unemployed, they charge me $3, bless 'em! I am so relieved, my wrist has been getting slowly worse since March.

Donnajames

Daniel HAD a very weird doctor for a short period of time. He only recommended eating horse meat!!!! I told him NEVER!!! And he was not kidding...he meant it! Notice I put HAD in all caps!!
If you smoke the brisket over a very long period, you have the most moist, tender and yummy piece of meat that falls apart and melts in your mouth!!!! Drooling!!!! :-))

I've been using National Calendar Day as my reference, though they do have some really strange things listed sometimes.

Mischka

@hippo -- I have no idea why cloned horses are included in the food history, and I promise you I would never eat horse meat. The idea!

Mischka

How did I miss that? Well, Foodimentary is compiled in some other English-speaking nation. They do have May as National Hamburger Month. :)

Also National Hamburger Day, so (veggie) burger for dinner.
