My mother, Enid, always used the most marbled cut of brisket she could find to make this recipe so she'd get the most flavor. When she added carrots to the pan, she threw in some potatoes, too. —Ellen Ruzinsky, Yorktown Heights, NY
For a mouthwatering main dish to star in a summer meal, this brisket can't be beat. Baked slowly, the meat gets nice and tender and picks up the sweet and tangy flavor of the barbecue sauce.—Page Alexander, Baldwin City, Kansas
When I was a child, my mom would make her Holiday Beef Brisket on Jewish holidays and other special occasions. Everyone gathered around the table to enjoy the tender slices of meat alongside nicely browned carrots and potatoes. Those heart-warming meals evoked camaraderie and love for our family.
