Beef Brisket Tostados with Spicy Peanut Slaw

Ingredients

2-1/2 to 3-1/2 pounds boneless beef brisket

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 jar (12 ounces) tomato sofrito

8 corn tortillas (6-inch diameter)

Vegetable oil

Chopped roasted salted peanuts (optional)

Spicy Peanut Slaw

1 package (16 ounces) coleslaw mix

2/3 cup roasted salted peanuts, chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

Salt (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325°F. Place brisket on large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle both sides of brisket with pepper and spread with sofrito; wrap tightly in foil. Place in a 13X9-inch baking dish; cook in 325°F oven 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until fork-tender.

Meanwhile, combine Spicy Peanut Slaw ingredients in large bowl. Season with salt, if desired. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Add oil to medium skillet until approximately 1/2 inch deep. Heat over medium heat until oil reaches 350°F. Fry one tortilla at a time 1 to 2 minutes or until crispy, turning once. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Remove brisket from foil, reserving cooking liquid. Skim fat from cooking liquid; keep cooking liquid warm in large saucepan. Trim fat from brisket. Cut into 4 to 6 pieces; shred with 2 forks. Stir shredded beef into reserved liquid; heat through.

Top each tostado shell with 1/2 cup shredded beef. Top with 2/3 cup cabbage mixture. Garnish with chopped peanuts, if desired.
