Beef Brisket Recipe Ingredients:
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 (5 to 6 pounds) beef brisket, rinsed and patted dry
* Kosher salt and freshly-ground pepper
* 40 large cloves garlic, peeled (about 3 to 4 heads of garlic - see Notes)
* 1 large sweet onion, sliced and separated into rings
* 1/4 cup red wine or balsamic vinegar
* 2 to 3 cups beef or chicken broth
* 2 teaspoons dried oregano, crushed
* 1 teaspoon dried basil
Beef Brisket Recipe Instructions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Season beef brisket liberally on both sides with kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper.
Heat a large Dutch oven or heavy, deep-sided, oven-proof skillet with a lid over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to coat the bottom. Sear both sides of brisket, beginning with fat-side down, until golden brown. Remove to a platter.
Add garlic cloves and sweet onion rings to the remaining oil in the pan. Cook and stir until garlic begins to turn golden and sweet onions are limp.
Add red wine or balsamic vinegar and deglaze the pan, stirring for 1 minute while scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add beef or chicken broth, oregano, and basil.
Bring back to a simmer, then turn off heat. Move garlic and onions to the side and return brisket to the Dutch oven or skillet. Spoon garlic and onions over the top of the brisket, cover tightly, and place in the oven.
Bake beef brisket for 1 hour at 325 F. Reduce heat to 300 and bake an additional 1-1/2 to 2 hours, or until brisket is fork-tender. Remove brisket to a platter and cover to keep warm. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Remove half of of garlic cloves and most of onions to a bowl.
Skim off excess oil from the pan gravy and discard. Blend pan gravy and garlic until smooth. You can add a flour or cornstarch slurry to thicken gravy, if you wish. Return reserved whole garlic cloves and onions to the gravy.
Slice beef brisket diagonally across the grain. Serve with pan gravy..and its ready to serve ! Enjoy the beef brisket !
