Have you ever had a brisket taco? I had one on a trip we took out west a few years ago and absolutely fell in love with them. No other taco compares since.

The full-flavor of this super simple dish makes people think you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen for the whole afternoon, when in reality, you just stick the brisket in the oven and let the oven do all the work for you. Add some fresh and delicious toppings and they’ll never guess you have a total of about 10 minutes hands-on time with this meal.

Here’s how I make it.
