Ingredients

  • 1 (3-pound) beef brisket, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cups vertically sliced onion (about 1 large)

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Preparation

  1. Rub brisket with salt and pepper. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add brisket to pan; cook 10 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove brisket from the pan. Add 1/4 cup water to pan, stirring to loosen browned bits. Add onion and parsnip; sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
