Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, begins in just two weeks! I’ve always, always wanted to celebrate Hanukkah. I’m a fan of pretty much any and every holiday, especially one with beautiful, sparkly decorations, glowing candlelight, and incredibly delicious food.
Speaking of delicious food, this slow-cooked garlic brisket is a long-time family favorite and would be perfect for Hanukkah dinner. The recipe was given to my mom decades ago by a woman at church, and we’ve made it ever since when we need something a little more special than our usual pot roast. It is simple to make and tastes fantastic, as all good recipes should. Happy Hanukkah!

Roasted Garlic Brisket
5-6 lbs. beef brisket
4 cups beef broth
4 cups water
1 Tablespoon Kitchen Bouquet (a little brown bottle with a yellow-and-red label, available online or at Walmart)
2 whole garlic bulbs, cloves separated and peeled
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 250°F. Place the brisket in a large cooking bag and place the bag in a 9 ” x 13″ baking dish. Pour beef broth, water, and Kitchen Bouquet over brisket. Scatter garlic bulbs evenly over brisket, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and seal bag. Poke 2-3 small holes in the top of the bag, and cook in the oven for 8-10 hours. Remove pan from oven, open bag, and carefully remove meat from bag. Place on a cutting board, loosely cover with foil, and let sit 5 minutes before cutting and serving. Strain au jus and serve alongside the meat.
