Inspired by Amanda's Essential NY Times Cookbook, I've set out to cook brisket in sweet & sour sauce for my first Rosh Hashanah. Recipes calls for 6-7 pound first-cut brisket. At my grocery, the largest brisket I could find was 2 pounds at $11.99/lb. Looks beautiful and we are having a small gathering so it should work. Then, shopping at a big box I see brisket at $2.38/lb and the smallest is nearly 10 pounds. Did I accidentally buy a really special cut of brisket at $11.99/lb and would it be very bad karma to prepare it with Coca-Cola as the recipe directs?
