This fork-tender recipe for flavorful brisket of beef is a perfect make-ahead. Not only do we get the bonus of extra time, but the leftovers make for sensational sandwiches!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 (3-pound) boneless beef brisket, well trimmed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 3/4 cups beef broth
  • 1 pound carrots
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces (1-1/4 cups) pitted dried prunes

What to Do

  1. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add the brisket and brown on both sides. Add the onion around the brisket; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until the onion is tender.
  2. Add the beef broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover tightly, and simmer 2 hours.
  3. Add the carrots, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt, and pepper; cover and cook 45 to 60 minutes, or until the brisket is fork-tender.
  4. Uncover, add the prunes, and cook about 5 more minutes, or until prunes are tender.
  5. Slice the brisket across the grain and serve topped with the carrots, prunes, and sauce.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I usually roast my brisket in the oven (covered & with carrots, onion, catsup) for about 1-1/2 hours, chill, remove hardened fat, thinly slice, cover with foil and roast another hour in the juices. Very tender and flavorful. But, I think I will try this recipe. Sounds great!

Love this recipe! Great for company over, or any time!
