Joey's Grandma Esther's Brisket

Chef Joey Altman's great-grandma Esther was a fine cook. Nothing extravagant, but everything was delicious. Her vegetables were always soft and would be considered overcooked by most people, but the more she cooked them, the more the flavors intensified. Her brisket recipe is the epitome of that phenomenon. It makes a soul-satisfying main course for a Passover seder. Spaetzle is the perfect accompaniment (see related recipe at left).

This was sensational. I used a corned beef brisket to make this and the meat turned out perfect, juicy, and rosy as it should. My husband raved about it and my 3 year old asked me for second and third helpings. The veggies came out very soft but so flavorful. Used the rest of the meat for Reuben sandwiches. Will definitely be making this recipe again. Note to self for next time: Not long to prepare but long to cook and "marinate"! :)
Pros: Yield, Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Adaptable, Will Make Again
