Holiday Beef Brisket Recipe

Holiday Beef Brisket Recipe

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.
