Brisket becomes ultratender when braised in red wine and beef broth. It makes the perfect centrepiece for a holiday meal. If the brisket has the fat attached (which is ideal for maximum moistness), place it fat side up in the roasting pan.

Ingredients

  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 beef brisket boneless pot roast (about 4 lb/1.8 kg)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 2 cups sodium-reduced beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Method

Stir together garlic, rosemary, 2 tbsp of the oil, mustard, onion powder and pepper; rub all over brisket. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Sprinkle brisket with salt. In large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; brown brisket all over. Transfer to large roasting pan.

Stir wine with broth; pour into pan. Cover and braise in 325?F (160?C) oven until fork-tender, 3 to 4 hours. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 10 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain.

Meanwhile, strain pan juices through fine sieve; skim off fat. Return juices to pan and bring to boil. Whisk cornstarch with 2 tbsp water; whisk into pan and cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Serve with brisket. (Make-ahead: Let brisket and sauce cool for 30 minutes. Return brisket to sauce; cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Thinly slice across the grain; arrange in sauce. Cover and reheat in 325?F/160?C oven until hot, about 1 hour.)
