When I gave a cooking demonstration at Chabad of Memphis, I visited the local sights with my friend Angie. We ate at the Holy Cow, located inside the JCC, where I ordered brisket fries. The owner, Shelley Ostrov, sat with me and we chatted about kids, recipes, and Jewish life in Memphis. I became obsessed with the brisket fries and when I got home, I developed my own version that would be perfect to serve to my family at a Shabbat dinner or even at a party.
Brisket Fries with Garlic Mayo

Prepare the Brisket
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a small bowl, mix spices together; sprinkle them all over meat.
Place onion slices into a roasting pan large enough to hold the meat. Place seasoned meat onto onions. Pour barbecue sauce over meat. Cover tightly; roast for three hours, until tender.
Cool slightly; using two forks, shred meat. Set aside.
Prepare the Fries
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with Gefen Parchment Paper; set aside.
In a large bowl, toss together potato wedges, oil, spices, and mustard until combined.
Divide potatoes between prepared baking sheets. Roast for 40 minutes, or until brown.
Prepare the Garlic Mayo
Whisk together all garlic mayo ingredients.
Assemble the brisket fries: Arrange potatoes on a platter. Top with pulled brisket; drizzle with Garlic Mayo. Serve immediately. If desired, serve with Spicy Slaw, as pictured.
