1 lb. Smoked Brisket, cooked, sliced
8 shishito peppers
1 tsp. olive oil
⅛ tsp. coarse sea salt
8 slider buns
2 cups arugula
2 cloves garlic
½ cup packed fresh cilantro
½ cup packed fresh parsley
¼ cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. freshly grated lemon zest
¼ tsp. crushed red pepper
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat for 5 minutes. In a small bowl combine peppers, olive oil and sea salt; toss to coat. In a single layer, arrange peppers in pan, cook without disturbing, 2-3 minutes or until skins are blistered and slightly blackened. Turn peppers, cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until charred all over. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
To prepare chimichurri sauce, place garlic in food processor container. Cover; process until finely chopped. Add remaining sauce ingredients. Cover; process until well blended.
Place arugula on the bottom of buns, top with brisket and chimichurri. Close sandwiches and top with a single shishito pepper pierced with a toothpick.
