This is a different type of brisket recipe with an Eastern European Jewish influence. Unlike most briskets that are cooked in the oven, this brisket is simmered on the stove. Best prepared a day or so in advance. Freezes and reheats well.

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown brisket on both sides and transfer it to a deep pot.
  2. Stir in tomato paste, water, onions, carrots, mushrooms, garlic powder, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until meat is tender, about 2 1/2 hours. Transfer to a baking dish, cool, and refrigerate overnight.
  4. About 1 1/2 hours before serving, preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Skim off fat residue from sauce and slice brisket across the grain. Layer beef, vegetables, and sauce in a baking dish.
  5. Cover pan with foil and bake in preheated oven until hot, about 1 hour.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!
