Beef Brisket with Black Pepper and Vegetables
This is a fabulous meal for Shabbat. If you like Beef this one will become a favorite.
1 5-6 lbs. boneless Kosher Beef Brisket, cleaned
1 tbs. coarsely Ground Black Pepper
½ cup Soy Sauce
½ cup Apple Juice
½ cup of Kosher Israeli Wine (Any dry Kosher Wine will work.)
½ cup Vinegar
1 small can (8 oz) Tomato Paste
1 tsp. Sweet Paprika
5 cloves Garlic, crushed and minced
1 lb. New Red Potatoes cleaned
1 lb. New White Potatoes cleaned
2 Carrots sliced
4 Onions Quartered
2 Red Bell Peppers chopped
2 Green Bell Peppers chopped
2 stalks Celery chopped
1 lb. Mushrooms a mixture whole, quartered and cut in half
1 tbs. All Purpose Flour and a little water used as a thickener
Marinate the Brisket in a mixture of garlic, paprika, soy sauce, vinegar, apple juice, wine and tomato paste overnight in a covered container. Turn the meat a couple times.
Remove from the marinade and sprinkle the a little black pepper on the brisket. Turn to coat all sides with the pepper. Combine remaining ingredients. Place brisket in a covered roasting pan and pour marinade over meat. Cover the pan and roast everything together at 300 degrees F for 3 ½ – 4 hours, or until tender.
Remove the meat and the vegetables from the roasting pan and drain the combined juices into a sauce pan. Heat over a medium heat until it begins to boil and whisk in the flour and water combination to make a thickened sauce.
Slice the brisket, place onto a platter, spoon the vegetables around the brisket and slowly pour the sauce over everything. Serve with a salad, a fresh vegetable, a little fish and a cup of soup.
Scrub the kids, add some Challah, light a couple Candles, pour some Kosher Israeli Wine, (I really like the Kosher Israeli Merlot wines.) Remember it was Hashem that provided you with everything that you have. Make this Erev Shabbat special and add a few prayers over the Wine, the Challah, your Family, the Jewish People and the State of Israel. Don’t forget to bless the children and your all set for Shabbat.
This is your day. Keep it Holy, forget the problems of the world, I guarantee you they will be there after Shabbat. Most importantly reconnect with your family and enjoy Shabbat.
A special note. Whenever possible please purchase Kosher items that come from Israel especially those products that originate in Judea and the Shomron.
