Ingredients

  • 4 lb boneless beef brisket pot roast , trimmed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 1/2 white onion , chopped
  • 2 tbsp garlic , finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups red wine

FOR LEMON-PARSLEY GARNISH:

  • 1 tbsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp garlic , finely chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Divide brisket into 4 evenly sized pieces; season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a wide, heavy pot over medium high. In batches, brown brisket on all sides, 8 to 10 min. Transfer to a plate. Keep 1 tbsp of oil in pot, discard remaining oil, and reduce heat to medium.

  • Add chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Return brisket and any accumulated juices to pot, meat side down. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook until fork-tender, 3 to 3½ hours.
  • Meanwhile, make the Lemon-Parsley Garnish: In a bowl, mix ingredients. Sprinkle over thinly sliced brisket and serve with sauce.
