Sweetbread are a gland in cattle, and this is the way my husband and I prepare them. We like them in tiny pieces, but others make them in larger portions. This method of cooking and the taste remind me a little of chicken hearts, only better. One pound of sweetbreads makes plenty for 2 people using our method.
- 1 (6 pound) beef brisket, trimmed of fat
- 2 (16 ounce) jars dill pickle spears
- 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
Place brisket in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour dill pickle spears and pickle juice over the beef; add barbeque sauce.
Cook on High until beef shreds easily with 2 forks, about 6 hours.
