What say the FDB?

Hmm... never would've thought about it. Experiment for us and report back.

It'll work. Add a pat of butter if need be as well and swirl all in over medium heat. Probably pretty nice addition to the brisket drippings. Just remove the fat from them, maybe a bit of water for balance.

1.) Use good, brand name (read: Philadelphia) cream cheese. Wal-mart brand does not seem to work too well.

2.) Probably would have been wise to soften/melt the cream cheese before putting it (cold, straight from the fridge) in the already reducing sauce.

3.) I could use an immersion blender--lots of little bitty white clumps of cream cheese now. Hopefully they will melt.
