Christmas Recipes – Beef Brisket For Hanukkah November 9, 2007


1 (1-oz.) envelope onion soup mix

1 1/2 cups Burgundy wine

1/3 cup orange marmalade

1/4 cup water

2 tablespoons flour

1 tablespoon dried basil

2 teaspoons dried thyme

2 teaspoons sugar

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 (4-lb.) brisket of beef, fat trimmed

1 lb. mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

Preheat oven to 300º

In a roasting pan, combine dry soup mix, wine, marmalade, water, flour,

basil, thyme, sugar, garlic and pepper. Add brisket. Spoon some of the sauce

over the top of the brisket. Cover and bake for 3 hours, basting with sauce

once each hour.

Stir in mushrooms and bake for 30 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.

Slice meat. Spoon fat from sauce and serve sauce with meat.

To make ahead: Prepare roast as directed above; do not add mushrooms. Remove

roast from pan; place on a piece of heavy-duty foil. Let roast stand 30

minutes to cool. Wrap in foil and refrigerate overnight. Pour sauce into a

bowl; cover and refrigerate.

To serve, preheat oven to 325ºF. Return meat and sauce to pan; stir in

mushrooms. Cover and bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until meat is heated

through (160°F) and mushrooms are tender.
