Apple-Braised Beef Brisket

By browning the brisket thoroughly before adding the apple cider, you introduce a delightful carmelization that pairs beautifully with the season's best apple cider. Serve with a nutty wild and brown rice blend and your favorite vegetable.
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 lb. flat-cut beef brisket, trimmed of visible fat
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. crushed rosemary leaves
  • 2 c. apple cider

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the brisket and cook until well-browned on all sides. Sprinkle all sides with the seasonings and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Remove the brisket to a roasting pan with a rack.

Add the apple cider to the skillet and cook and stir to heat and remove any bits of meat from the pan. Pour the cider over the brisket in the roasting pan. Roast the brisket for about an hour or until desired doneness is achieved. Serve with the pan drippings spooned over the sliced beef.
