Tyler Florence Fridays: Braised Beef Brisket

My first ever Tyler Flore Fridays, introduced to me by fellow blogger and long distance friend Megan, and really, I think the pictures speak for themselves.

I mean seriously, look at all those lovely ingredients, waiting to meld together in the oven. The star, beef brisket, ready to be braised with carrots, garlic, celery, onions, tomatoes, herbs and half a bottle of red wine.

My only complaint (aside from the cost, but I found a source for local, organic beef and it was worth it!) is that this needs more veggies. I plan to make this again in the future, but will more than double the veggies. Especially since I ended up freezing a generous amount of the meat and sauce and still could use more veggies.

Unfortunately, I pulled this recipe off of Food Network's website and it seems to have disappeared since then. I can find one there, this one, but this isn't the one I had pulled off. The one I had suggested a parsnip puree with it, but this is fairly close.

So find some good brisket and try it!

Oh, PS to Megan - I didn't just buy one book - I BOUGHT TWO!!!!!

Brisket is a great cut - so flavourful! I agree that many recipes don't come with enough veggies.
Love a recipe that calls for half a bottle of wine - that means the other half is for the chef, right? ;)
So happy you are joining us!
