A cross between cornbread and biscuits, these buttery-crumbly sandwiches are our new favorite way to enjoy classic brisket. 

Brisket and Biscuits
Yield: 6 servings
Write a review
  1. 1 2⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1⁄3 cup plain cornmeal
  3. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  4. 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  5. 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  6. 1 cup whole buttermilk
  7. 1 pound sliced smoked brisket
  8. 6 slices Cheddar cheese
  9. Dill pickle slices
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces of butter remaining. Add buttermilk, stirring just until moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 4 or 5 times. Roll dough to approximately 3⁄4 inch thick. Using a 3-inch round cutter dipped in flour, cut dough, without twisting cutter. Place 1 inch apart on prepared pan. Gently reroll scraps as needed.
  4. Bake until golden brown, approximately 12 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes. Split biscuits horizontally; set tops aside. Divide brisket and cheese evenly among bottom halves of biscuits.
  5. Bake until cheese melts, approximately 2 minutes. Top with pickles and biscuit tops
