Sweet and Sour Brisket

Today I chose to share with you the recipe for Sweet and Sour Brisket we just made for a Hanukah dinner. The protein content is wonderful as is the taste of this brisket!
Brisket has a long history in the United States. Brisket is the meat of choice for slow smoking barbecue in Texas, and is often considered the "National Dish of Texas".
In Britain it is generally not smoked, but is one of a number of low-cost cuts which historically may have been boiled with root vegetables and mild spices, or cooked very slowly in a lidded casserole with gravy.
In Germany, brisket is braised in dark beer and cooked with celery, carrots, onions, bay leaf and thyme.
In traditional Jewish cooking, brisket, is most often braised as a pot roast, especially as a holiday main course and on the Sabbath..
In Hong Kong, it is cooked with spices over low heat until tender, and is commonly served with noodles in soup or curry.
In Korean traditionally it is first boiled at low temperature with aromatic vegetables, then pressed with a heavy object in a container full of a soy sauce-based marinade.
It is a common cut of meat used in Vietnamese phở soup.
In Italian cuisine brisket is used to prepare bollito misto, a typical Northern Italy recipe.
In Mexican cooking brisket is used to prepare suadero tacos.
