This brisket is perfect, delicious and easily kosher for Passover. Serve with mashed potatoes, potato latkes or roasted vegetables.
The simple things in life are often the best. After watching Howard Wallowitz of Big Bang Theory fame lose his mind over his mother's Brisket I was inspired to create this dish. Its not easy to make this dish in Australia. The cut is usually used for corned beef. Having a butcher associate custom cut and roll a brisket for me, I was ready to start. This recipe lept out at me. I love braising in a dutch oven I make chilli, pork and beans and braised steak and onions regularly. There's nothing to this dish, just make sure to check it regularly so it doesn't catch. I'm sure Howard's mother wouldn't mind a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce in it either. - 06 Jun 2012
Needs more -- vegetables, carrots, celery, onions -- for a rich pot liquor. Don't use water -- use a rich beef stock. For an excellent piece of meat, be certain to buy a FIRST-CUT BRISKET!! - 04 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I am a first time cook of Beef Brisket, not to mention, that I don't often cook too much of anything else either, but I longed for the Beef Brisket Sandwich you get in a good Jewish Deli without going all the way to New York The Brisket turned out great; the flavor was exactly what I was aiming for. I thought that I had drown the brisket, as some of the other's did, the pot size is very important in proportion to the size of the piece of brisket, but as the recipe directed, ‘after removing the Brisket from the pot’, I simmered the broth with the Pot Lid ajar, until it reduced (about 1hr) to a fine delectably tasty gravy. Yes this recipe will be well used and some of the hints in the other reviews as well, But, let us not forget this was and is the only recipe that I found that met my requirements for a Delicious mouth-watering Brisket of Beef sandwich. My Gratitude and Appreciation to you FriendlyFood for submitting and sharing your Mothers Recipe. Note: This was the first time since my Mother passed that I used her old seasoned & blackened (Dutch oven), I think that’s what it’s called? Anyway it brought back many fond memories of her in the kitchen cooking her favorite recipes such as pot roast or turkey & giblet gravy. Thanks & Regards RECIPE NOTES: • Be careful with the pepper (Don't over season, you can't change after it is cooked and too much pepper will make the Brisket inedible. If your not sure(try dusting off excess pepper before cooking) • Be sure to N - 20 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
