About this Recipe
Two ingredients, one wholesome meal. There’s something about dark meat and dark green vegetables that pairs really well together, don’t you think?
For this Sims Home Kitchen recipe, we decided to go back to the basics, and elevate them. You’ll need both your oven and your stove for this one, but we promise the results will be worth it. This is a meal that even the most inexperienced cook can handle, and it will quickly become one of your go-to meals when you don’t have many ingredients sitting around the house!
Our sweet and savory recipe below calls for a few tablespoons of honey to provide a sweet rub on the beef brisket. However, we know that not every home cook is a fan of honey. There are some healthy and organic alternatives that are just as delicious and can satisfy that craving for something a little less salty.
- Date paste
- Agave syrup
- Maple syrup
- Yacon root syrup
Corn syrup also serves as a good substitute for that bee-made sweetness, but it has higher sugar levels than the ingredients listed above. For this reason, we aren’t “officially” recommending it!
Beef Brisket & Asparagus Storage Options
Unlike most meats, cooked beef brisket can actually last for a little while in storage. You can keep it in the fridge for about 4 days until it needs to be thrown out. Asparagus can last in the fridge as well, but it will last even longer if it’s in an airtight container. If you want to freeze either of these two things, wrap them in foil or in a freezer bag to store them for a very long time.
