Brisket Tacos

Making brisket tacos is an excellent way to use up your leftover brisket.  We will usually make a brisket and serve it with all the brisket trimmings such as coleslaw and baked beans on the weekend.  Then, during the week, I will take the brisket and shred it to serve as the foundation for the tacos.  Just whip up some fresh pico de gallo, slice some avocados, and you’ve got yourself a great weeknight meal in less than 20 minutes!
