No, nothing will replace your grandmother's brisket. It's tender and juicy. It falls off the bone and it is an instant-nostalgia manufacturer.

But, as brisket season infiltrates the calendar (the dish is a Rosh Hashanah staple, and warms our stomachs sometimes for eight crazy nights when Hanukkah rolls around), Bubbe's recipe might benefit from a little pizzaz. Before you let the guilt settle in your stomach, try a couple of these inspiring takes below. Your grandma may not have ever thought to mix her brisket into a plate of nachos, but she'll admire you for your moxie.
