Red Velvet Biscuits with BBQ Brisket

Juneteenth-Cookout-Takeover-Banner

In honor of Juneteenth I decided to make red velvet buttermilk biscuits with bbq brisket and collard coleslaw.

Red food dominates the dinner menu during the Juneteenth, whether it’s barbecue, red velvet cake, red soda, hibiscus tea, watermelon or strawberries. Southerners have many tales on the reason why red food is used during the celebration from the bloodshed of millions of slaves to rituals of the Asante tribe.

Red Velvet Biscuit Sandwich with Brisket & Collards

Red Velvet Biscuits with BBQ Brisket Cooking Tips:

You want to have a nice layer of fat on your brisket this will keep it moist and from drying out over the 5 hour cook time.

Can you make ahead?

Freezer: Red Velvet Biscuits: After biscuits cools off, store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the freezer for 5 months max. Thaw 12 hours before using.

Fridge: Red Velvet Biscuits: After biscuits cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.

BBQ Brisket: After briskets cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.

Collard Coleslaw: Place in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days max.

Reheating: Red Velvet Biscuits: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 5-8 minutes.

BBQ Brisket: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

Substitution Options:

You can use a plant based dye for the biscuits.

You can use any milk you have in place of the buttermilk but you’ll be sacrificing flavor.

You can use a vegan mayonnaise for the coleslaw.

juneteenth Cookout:

I’m participating in the 2020 Juneteenth Cookout Takeover. This initiative was established to encourage the celebration of Juneteenth – a jubilee of freedom to commemorate the end of slavery – and to amplify the food traditions of black culinary creatives.

Juneteenth (a merge of the words/date June Nineteenth) marks the date in 1865 that the last enslaved people learned of their freedom.  And for over 150 years since, Black American families, home-cooks, chefs, and culinarians have commemorated the summer holiday with a wide range of food traditions that tell a story of the perseverance of a people.

Red Velvet Biscuits with BBQ Brisket

Juneteenth is the celebration of the end of slavery. Red food dominates the dinner menu during the Juneteenth, whether it’s barbecue, red velvet cake, red soda, hibiscus tea, watermelon or strawberries. Southerners have many tales on the reason why red food is used during the celebration from the bloodshed of millions of slaves all the way back to rituals of the Asante tribe. To put my twist on it I’m using two of my favorite foods biscuits and brisket.
