Brisket sandwich is a well known sandwich served in many fast food chains from Chicago, as well as other parts of the United States. The sandwich consists of beef brisket (sometimes it may also be called corned beef), garlic, onions, chilli sauce and buns (the most popular for this sandwich being the onion buns). The beef 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. Generally, it takes quite a lot of time to prepare the meat for the sandwich, the most common ways to do this being either by braising it or smoking it. Many times the meat can be simply sauteed for several minutes, then cooked in a slow cooker for several hours. Once the meat is cooked, assembling the sandwich is quite easy. The sandwich is great when served with coleslaw salad.
