Big Bad Brisket Sandwich

By Mark Hinds | Updated November 29, 2023

The Big Bad Brisket Sandwich is one of those sandwiches so full of zesty flavors that you’ll dream about it long after your first taste.

This sandwich is all about tender brisket, tangy BBQ sauce, and pepper jack cheese getting together to have a good time on some Texas Toast.

You can use any good brisket for these sandwiches, but our favorite way to make them is using our Sous Vide Brisket recipe because it produces this supple, smoky brisket that is easy to slice thin.

Our favorite BBQ Sauce for the Big Bad Brisket Sandwich is Ancho Chili and Honey BBQ Sauce. The sauce’s complex smoky flavors have just the right amount of smoke and heat to compliment the brisket and satisfy the Texas Toast.

  • 2 slices Red onion

  • Add a little oil to a flat bottomed pan set over medium-high heat. Add in the sliced brisket and the onion, flipping them occasionally.
  • In the same pan toast the Texas Toast, trying not to get your tongue twisted. When the first side is golden brown, flip each slice over, and add the cheese.
  • Once the other side of the Texas Toast is toasted, remove the bread from the pan, pile on the brisket and the onion and top everything off with a good squirt of BBQ sauce.
