Try this make-ahead recipe for simple braised brisket with a lemon-parsley garnish.


  • 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

  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth


  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped

  • 2 tbsp fresh bread crumbs

  • 1 tbsp grated lemon zest

  • 1 tsp garlic, finely chopped


  • 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 onions and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 5 to 8 min.

  • Add tomato paste, bay leaves and red wine, then stirring and scraping brown bits, cook and reduce for 5 min.

  • 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.
