Week 27 : Whiskey BBQ Stuffed Baked Potatoes

1/2 onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic
3/4 cup whiskey
1/2 tea black pepper
1/2 tea salt
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 Tbs liquid smoke
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
hot sauce to taste
1 beef brisket
3-4 baked potatoes

In a saucepan over medium heat, simmer garlic, onions and whiskey until onions are clear.  Add remaining ingredients to saucepan and simmer for about 10 minutes.  Place brisket in Crock Pot and pour sauce over top.  Cook on LOW for about 8 hours.  Top baked potatoes with cheese, sour cream, brisket and sauce.  Enjoy!!

This sauce is a wonderful find for me!  If you are interested in saving a little time, you could certainly use a bottle of your favorite sauce from the store.  But, if you want to try something different, this is definitely worth the extra 10-20 minutes.  (Be sure to sample the whiskey during cooking as well!)  It does make a lot of sauce though, so maybe halve the recipe or save half the sauce for another day!  Again, you can save time by throwing the potatoes in the microwave for a few minutes or just start the potatoes in the oven about an hour prior to the brisket being finished.  This is a very easy, filling meal.  Of course, the brisket would be great alone served with corn on the cob and sliced watermelon!  A great recipe to kick off the summer season!!
