    Score the brisket, important to help the marinade soak in and break up the fibrous muscle strands

    Step 20

    Place brisket into marinade container. Let marinade for an hour, flipping half way through process.

    Step 21

    Step 22

    Heat up a grill pan over med-high heat. Sear the brisket on both sides

    That is just a beautiful piece of meat!

    Set it on low and slow

    Step 27

    Add marinade to crockpot

    Step 28

    Ready and waiting

    Step 29

    Add the seared brisket, cook until fork tender

    Step 30

    Ok, here's the chicken wing version. Same marinade and process.

    Step 31

    Set oven to 375 degrees, bake for 30 minutes, covered.

    Step 32

    This is after 30 minutes covered. Uncover and bake another 30 minutes.

    Step 33

    This is after 1 hour total bake time at 375 degrees. Yummy!!!

    Serve with some coconut milk jasmine rice. In a rice cooker put 2 cups Jasmine rice, 1 can of coconut milk and one can of water. Close and press the button! Creamy with a coconut aroma, yummy!
