Caramelized Broth Brisket with Beef Jam

Please note, there are no process photos here. The reason is that I never expected this would be on the site. But never underestimate Stacy’s love of some slow cooked beef!

For months now, Stacy has been acquiring beef briskets at a rapid pace. I think my freezer now contains four. Why, you ask?  Because of the nonstop hints that she’d like me to make the Primal Palate Braised Brisket recipe, which she had while visiting them and claims it was one of the most divine food ever.

Only one problem though, as I pulled this cut out of my fridge: Stacy isn’t eating tomatoes right now, so a recipe involving a whole can of sauce is out of the question.

In a pinch, I modified it for our liking.

Caramelized Broth Brisket (with BEEF JAM)

Ingredients

3 lbs. beef brisket (we used US Wellness Meats’ and it was perfect)
1-2 onions (yellow preferred), sliced
2 C beef broth (preferably homemade)
salt
pepper
Italian seasoning (or a combination of dried basil, parsley and oregano)

Instructions

  1. ♥ Add onions to bottom of shallow roasting dish (I used this but any braising dish will do just as well)
  2. ♥ Salt, pepper and season both sides of the brisket and place on top of the onions
  3. Roast for 90 minutes in a 350 degree oven to cook the onions
  4. Add the broth, cover and reduce heat to 325; roast for an additional 4 hours (baste the meat with the broth every 30-60 minutes, if you’re able, until it’s no longer a liquid)

Enjoy a rich and savory roast that will have you begging for more! The nutrient-dense bone broth will caramelize with the onions and make a sweet jelly-like sauce to spread over your meat. It’s BEEF JAM!

We served our meat with butternut squash and a salad – divine! And since your kids helped with the ♥ steps, they will be excited to eat it too. Trust me, Stacy had to arm wrestle the boys for who got seconds!

This is a perfect food for children who don’t particularly love meat – it’s sweet and soft to eat on underdeveloped jaw muscles.
