Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup pure olive oil
  • 6 pounds brisket
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 celery ribs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 carrot, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Fresno chile, halved
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 5 thyme sprigs
  • 3 anchovy fillets, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 head garlic
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

In a large enameled cast iron casserole, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Season the brisket with salt and pepper. Add half of the brisket to the casserole and cook over medium-high heat, turning on all sides until browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer the brisket to a plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and remaining brisket. Add the celery, carrot, onion, and chile to the casserole and cook over medium heat until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, until glossy, about 2 minutes. Add the thyme sprigs, anchovies, bay leaf, and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the stock, wine, and vinegar and bring to a boil. Return the brisket to the casserole, cover and braise for 1 hour. Drop the heat to 225 degrees F and cook 4 more hours or until meat is tender.
