The scoop on David's House of Brisket - Mystery Solved

Josh | Aug 6, 2001 06:00 PM

I was at David's last week and since I am an investigator I decided to find out how this man learned the ancient art of brisket making. After pressing the owner, he told me that he makes the brisket the European old-fashioned way. I asked him which country and he replied Romania. I asked him if he had been to Romania and he replied that he bought the business some 35 - 40 years ago from a Romanian Jew who taught him how to prepare deli, alway's steam the meat, he stated.

One thing always tell him to hand slice or you might get machine sliced meat.
