It may have also had some type of tomato sauce or paste in it. The juices were a reddish brown; and like I said, a lot of sliced onions. Anything close, I'm sure will be great!
I can't add the link but a wonderful recipe was just posted the other day in "genius recipes" for Nach Waxmans beef brisket. I plan on making it and it looks amazing. It uses a ton of onions. Look in features, genius recipes and you will see it.
I think this is the recipe you're looking for: http://food52.com/recipes...
Thank you sdebrango! I'm going to give this link posting thing another try -- let's see how it goes: http://food52.com/recipes...
Trying it Sunday too. I think it hits all the high points.
Ruth Reichl, the noted American food writer, published her mother's recipe for Corned Beef Brisket on the pbs website. I'm not sure we're able to put links in these posts again, so I'll give it to you this way: pbs.org slash food slash recipes slash brisket-miriam-reichls-corned-beef-ham I'm not sure why the word 'ham' is included because there's no ham involved. Looks delicious!
There is also what you could call a 1950/60's semi-classic, brisket made with Lipton's onion dip. I think you lay the brisket on a sheet of aluminum foil, dump the dip packet contents over it, and wrap it up. Roast in the oven until done. Very popular in its day, and probably still widely made.
Susan, the Lipton's onion soup version was the first recipe I used on brisket. It was good, despite the soup-from-an-envelope!
Go to FineCooking.Com and look up their brisket. The family were humming throughout dinner in happiness when I made it.
Here are two recipes for brisket...one sweet and one savory, but both delicious!
