The mere thought of cooking something slowly in the oven all day gets me excited!
This is my favorite type of cooking. I’m talking about cooking that is slow and that completely transforms food into something even more flavorful and delicious. This is comfort food kind of cooking. You need to love flavor and cooking for this — and you need to have a considerable amount of available time. This is what I love do — it’s cooking on the weekends!
Brisket is a tough cut of meat that needs hours to become tender. Once it does, brisket is incredibly delicious and it will melt-in-your-mouth.
My mom has been making brisket for as long as I can remember, and she always wings it. And she wings it perfectly! After years of interrogating her about her method (well, her method of winging it), I have come up with this scrumptious recipe.
While this Braised Brisket Stew is a brilliant addition to a Hanukkah or another holiday dinner, it’s also perfect for a super cozy, casual dinner party. Serve it over rice, pasta, mashed potatoes, or — my favorite way — with a thick, crusty, slice of roasted garlic bread.
