Tacos are the first thing that comes to my mind. Brisket tacos can be made in just a few minutes by dicing up the meat, shredding up some cheese, lettuce, whatever you want to top them with, dicing up tomatoes or avocados.
Use whatever you have around the house to top a taco. You can serve them on steamed corn tortillas or even flour or top some chips for nachos. Tacos are up to your interpretation, but any way you make them they are delish!
And these leftover meat quesadillas can be whipped up in minutes and everyone loves them. Crispy tortilla on the outside, tender and flavorful meat on the inside. Super easy too.

Leftover brisket chili
A leftover brisket chili would be a snap to make. Chop up an onion, put a little fat in a large pot and cook the onion in it until it’s tender. Next, drop in the brisket, some diced tomatoes and some chili seasoning.
You can add a can or two of beans if you like beans in your chili. I personally think it’s not chili without them. Then cook and stir until everything is combined and mixture is at a simmer.
Add a cup or two of beef stock and cook it low and slow until the flavors meld together.
