BBQ Scrambled Eggs is the perfect way to use some of your leftover brisket. The smoky rich meat is similar to bacon and really compliments a light fluffy scrambled egg!


  • Leftover beef short ribs (brisket)
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Scallions, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • Butter
  • Crema (sour cream)
  • Hot sauce
  • Texas toast (optional)


  • Take your leftover beef short ribs (brisket) in a vacuum-sealed bag and place them in a saucepan.
  • Fill the saucepan with enough water to submerge the beef short ribs completely.
  • Heat the saucepan on the stovetop, bringing the water to a gentle simmer. Allow the beef short ribs to heat up thoroughly until they become nice and tender. You can check the tenderness by picking up the bag and feeling the meat. Once it's tender, remove it from the water bath.
  • While the beef short ribs are heating, grate the cheese and chop the scallions.
  • In another saucepan, crack four eggs and add a knob of butter.
  • Place the saucepan with the eggs and butter on the heat. Using a spatula, constantly stir the eggs while moving the saucepan on and off the heat. This ensures even cooking and prevents the eggs from overcooking.
  • Continue stirring until the eggs reach a custard-like consistency.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the grated Tillamook cheese to the eggs. The residual heat in the pan will melt the cheese and continue to cook the eggs.
  • Stir in the cheese until it's melted and fully incorporated into the scrambled eggs. Cook the eggs to your preferred consistency.
  • Add some crema (sour cream) to the scrambled eggs and mix it in.
  • Take the warmed brisket (beef short ribs) and add it to the scrambled eggs, mixing it in thoroughly.
  • Plate the brisket scrambled eggs and top them off with an additional drizzle of crema.
  • Add a little hot sauce for some heat and garnish with burnt ends (if desired) and chopped scallions.
  • Serve the brisket scrambled eggs with Texas toast on the side.
  • Dive in and enjoy this hearty and flavorful breakfast or brunch dish!
