  6. Recipe for Passover Slow Cooker Beef Brisket

    Cooking

    First, there's the "What is it?" Jewish brisket is not corned beef. Nor is it Texas-style barbecued brisket or French pot au feu, although the cut is the same. One of the nine beef primal cuts, it's from the pectorals, and because cows don't have collarbones, this big muscle supports a lot of bovine body weight. (Read: …

  10. Cook hack: Peel garlic cloves using a jar

    Cooking

    Peeling garlic: As much as I love eating garlic, that's how much I hate peeling the cloves.
