I work at a caterer's for extra cash on weekends, and I always end up with a few leftovers by the end of Sunday. This week, after trimming who knows how many pounds of brisket, they gave me a gallon sized bag of brisket trimmings.
I believe the idea was to give it to my pup, but before I go that far, I wanted to see if anyone has any brilliant ideas for what to do with it. Can I cook something else in it?

Priscilla, depending on fatty the trimmings are (i.e. are they all fat? Or scraps of meat?) we could imagine slowly rendering them in a big Dutch oven, then cooking some chopped root vegetables like sweet potatoes and squash with them. The meat would provide great flavor.
Readers, what would you do with a bunch of leftover brisket trimmings?
