Cranberry Brisket with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Cranberry Brisket with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes Recipe

The sweet and savory brisket is a great compliment to the zesty potatoes in this recipe. The rich color of the meat makes it an elegant holiday option.—Rachelle Schaefer, Studio City, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 3 hours YIELD:8 servings

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
