Lisa’s Juicy Brisket with Deglazed Onion and Wine Sauce

5 Comments 14 September 2013

I’ve known Lisa Ades now for about 5 years. When I’m not sitting at my computer blogging for The  Jewish Hostess, or taking care of my family, (and maybe doing a little fun shopping), I have the thrilling  job of working with Lisa as we co-produce a couple of  historical documentaries for The Joseph J. Sitt  Sephardic Heritage Museum.

Besides being a top notch filmmaker, Lisa also cooks gourmet meals for her family.

I’m so glad she found a minute to write up her famous kosher Brisket recipe!

Of course this is a perfect  main course for  your Shabbat and Jewish Holiday menus!

Juicy Brisket with Deglazed Onion and Wine Sauce:

    • Buy a 4-5 pound brisket.
    • Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper and brown it well on both sides in 1-2 tbsp. vegetable oil (canola).
    • Remove brisket and sauté 6 onions, coarsely chopped or thickly sliced.
    • When the onions are lightly browned, add 2-3 minced garlic cloves and sauté for about a minute.
    • Then add ½ can of tomato paste and brown with the onions for a few minutes.
    • Deglaze the pan with about a cup of red wine, scraping up any brown bits, then add a bay leaf and about a quart of chicken stock (the stock should come up to about half way in the pan).  The onions and brisket will give off a lot of liquid.
    • For extra flavor you can add ½ packet of instant onion soup mix. Cover the pan tightly and simmer on a low heat for about 2 hours.  You can also cook the brisket in the oven at about 350.
    • Remove the brisket from the pan and let cool.
    • In the meantime, skim the sauce and then blend the onions and cooking liquid with a hand blender right in the pot or remove to a blender if you want a smooth and thick gravy.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    • When the brisket is cool, cut off any fat if you wish and slice against the grain.
    • Nestle the sliced brisket in the gravy, cover and cook for about another hour, until it is very tender.   Total cooking time should be about 3 hours.

    I made brisket for the first time using this recipe. It was heavenly. Was devoured in minutes. Would definitely do again. Instant hit.

    I did marinate the night before in slices and red wine to increase flavor before cooking.

    This was delish! I made it for the last 3 holidays and making it this weekend for rosh hashana! The brisket is like butter after you cut it and recook in the gravy. I also add mushrooms to the gravy after I puree and before I return to the oven the second time. Thanks for sharing!

    I made this brisket for Shabbat a few weeks ago and it was amazing! All my guests loved it. My only advice is to remember to cut the brisket into thin strips.
    I’m making it again this week!

    Any advice on freezing this dish? Or, do you recommend preparing a few days in advance?

    • Lisa Ades says:

      Either way – I usually prepare it a few days in advance but it does freeze really well too. The trick to very tender brisket here is cooking the sliced brisket in the sauce for a long time, so if you do freeze it, make sure not to overcook it so that it won’t fall apart once you thaw and reheat it.
