Beef Brisket With Fall Vegetables

Yield Makes 8 to 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (5- to 6-pound) beef brisket, trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 carrots
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 parsnips, peeled and sliced
  • 4 celery ribs, sliced
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 1 fennel bulb, cut into fourths
  • 1 (2-ounce) package onion soup mix
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Beau Monde seasoning
  • 1 garlic bulb, pressed
  • 12 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Garnish: fresh fennel fronds

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Cut carrots into 2-inch pieces.

  2. Cook beef in hot vegetable oil in a roasting pan over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Add carrots, parsnips, celery, onions, and fennel.

  3. Stir together soup mix, 1 1/2 cups water, and next 5 ingredients; pour over beef and vegetables in pan. Sprinkle with thyme and chopped parsley. Bring to a boil; remove from heat, and cover with aluminum foil.

  4. Bake at 350° for 3 1/2 hours or until tender, basting with juices every 30 minutes. Remove beef from pan, reserving gravy. Cut beef into slices; place beef and vegetables on a large serving platter.

  5. Pour gravy through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, discarding solids. Drizzle a small amount of gravy over beef on platter; serve brisket with remaining gravy. Garnish, if desired.
