    Hello Amy: This is my first time to your blog.

    I have never had brisket done in the oven.

    I’m Canadian with British roots on one side and Newfie roots on the other.

    We put our brisket in a pot of water and boil it for 3-4 hours (replenishing water).

    If it isn’t in a pickling mixture already, then we pickle it before cooking.

    When it is almost done we add our root veg and cook until they are done.

    Serve with Mustard or as I do with a ginger honey thickened vinaigrette.

    The corned beef flavour comes out lovely.

    Your brisket looks so lovely and I think that I have to try it.

    Also do you know if they sell the Nektar in Canada??

    Have a Joyful Day :~D

    OK, confession time…I hate brisket. Husband will eat it, but not his favorite, either. This recipe looks great, though…I’m thinking beef tenderloin for us non-Kosher folks? The succotash looks beautiful!

      Haha it’s okay! This is a judge free zone. You could totally do the succotash on tenderloin or even salmon too! Maybe you just haven’t had good brisket? I love it smoked even better than braised!

    Best brisket ever: order an untrimmed whole one with the “nose” still attached; that is the think end. Only a real butcher shop has access to those. HUGE FLAVOR DIFFERENCE! I rub mine with any beef seasoning, sprinkle dry lipton onion soup over it, then spread one to two cans of cream of mushroom soup on top of that. Then add one inch of water, put in a 200 degree oven till almost done, around 6-7 hours, covered. Every hour check to remove excess fluid so you always have just around one inch remaining. This prevents the roast from boiling and getting tough, it gently steams it to perfection. When almost done, take it out of the oven, let cool slightly and slice with an electric knife across the grain, around 1/2 inch slices. this way the juice runs in between each slice and you can either put back in the oven for the last hour or wait until the next day to finish. When you serve it; reheat gently for an hour or so! Always tender, always delicious!!! Serve with sliced mushrooms & gravy on the side and Kasha with shells!! The thicker, fattiest end is the most flavorful…brisket needs the fat on it to be its best!!
