Balsamic Braised Brisket is the perfect way to wow and feed a crowd! The wonderful tang from the balsamic vinegar pairs delightfully with the rich flavors of the brisket. It can be served as a holiday dinner, weeknight meal, slow cooker meal, or for any occasion you can imagine! The brisket gets as tender as butter and melts in your mouth.
- 4–5 pound brisket
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- 3 cups beef stock
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place the brisket in a large Dutch oven and pour all of the other ingredients on top of it,making sure that some of the liquid gets underneath the brisket as well.
- Cover with a lid and braise in the oven for at least 3 hours and up to 4-5, or until the brisket is fork-tender. Remove the brisket from the pot and strain the sauce from the Dutch oven into a saucepan. Heat the sauce over medium heat and bring to a low boil. Allow the sauce to simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until it has reduced and thickened slightly. Serve the brisket with the sauce to pour over.
- To make the brisket a day in advance, follow all of the instructions and then submerge the brisket in the sauce before refrigeration. Heat the brisket in the oven in the sauce, covered, to make sure that it stays moist and tender. 350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes, or until heated all the way through.
