Tomato Basil Brisket cooked in white wine sauce is really delicious, and totally different!
If you’re one of my Jewish readers, you’re probably kinda bored of holiday food. Rosh Hashanah, then the first days of Sukkot…the food feels like it never ends…am I right?
Well today I’m sharing a totally different brisket recipe. It’s one I came up with when I needed something different to serve, so I feel it’s pretty appropriate to share today, while you are probably contemplating food for the rest of sukkos. If you’re done cooking, no fear! Tuck this gem of a recipe into the corner of your brain, and pull it out the next time you need a delicious roast recipe.
And if you don’t have a brisket on hand? I originally made this with minute steaks. It would work with swiss steak, minute roast, or other cuts of meat that do well with a low & slow cooking method. Want to make it extra festive? Throw a couple of peeled pearl onions into the sauce before baking it.
- 2½ - 3½ lb brisket (I used second cut)
- Salt and pepper to brown
- 4 medium Spanish onions, peeled and diced
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
- 10 cubes frozen basil*
- 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup white wine (sweet or dry)
- Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium high heat.
- Sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides of the brisket, then sear until brown on both sides. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350
- In a medium pot on a low-medium flame, saute the diced onions in the olive oil for about 20-30 minutes, until translucent.
- Add the halved cherry tomatoes, basil cubes, salt, pepper and wine. Stir to distribute evenly among the onions.
- Bring the mixture to a boil.
- Place the brisket in a large roasting pan, then pour the onion mixture over it.
- Cover the pan with foil and bake for 2½ to 3 hours, depending on the size of the brisket. (For a larger brisket, you might need longer than that.)
- Serve hot. Enjoy!
*Note: if frozen cubes aren’t available, you can use finely chopped fresh basil instead – use about 3 tablespoons.
