Our Best Ideas for Brisket

A true crowd-pleaser, brisket is a tender cut of meat that's worthy of any celebration— whether that be Rosh Hashanah, Passover or a summer backyard BBQ. It tastes best when cooked at a low temperature for a long time. You can braise it, smoke it, grill it or let your slow cooker do the heavy lifting for you. In this recipe, we add everything to the slow cooker, then walk away for 4 hours. Right before serving, we sear the brisket in the skillet to caramelize the crust and maximize flavor. (Do not skip this step!)

Pomegranate-Braised Brisket with Sweet-and-Spicy Zhug

Try this rich pomegranate-braised brisket for Rosh Hashanah to honor a sweet and prosperous New Year. Pomegranate is a prevalent ingredient in Israel, where my family is from, and here the juice and seeds bring flavor and color to this version of the holiday classic. I’ve also added fresh apples and dried cherries to bring more sweetness to the autumn celebration. It's topped with a drizzle of zhug, a spicy Yemenite condiment made from chiles and herbs that here gets a sweet hit of pomegranate syrup.

Braised Brisket with Root Vegetables

Baby potatoes, carrots and parsnips sit beneath the brisket during braising, soaking up juices from the brisket and wine as it cooks. The root vegetables will taste so delicious, they may just steal the show.
