Jewish Brisket Recipe

Braised brisket is a classic meat dish to serve for Jewish holidays including Rosh Hashanah. This Jewish brisket recipe is comforting and delicious!

Here are the ingredients you need to make the most delicious pan of braised comfort food. The cranberry sauce, beer and ketchup are 💯.

Combine the ketchup, whole berry cranberry sauce and dark beer. Whisk to combine well and set aside.


In a large roasting pan, brown the meat and the onions. Start with the meat fat-side-down so it ends up fat-side-up for the oven.


Pour the braising liquid over the seared meat and onions. Cover the pan well with foil and place in a 350°F preheated oven.


One hour before it's done, take the meat out and slice it against the grain. This is crucial - if you cut with the grain, the meat will be tough.


Place the sliced meat back in the braising pan along with the carrots and potatoes and continue to cook for at least one hour.


When it's done, you can serve it right away or chill or freeze for later use. The flavor of brisket will improve on day two!
