Caramelized onions give beef and carrots great flavor. You'll be surprised to see just how easy it is to prepare this fork-tender brisket.


  • 1 fresh beef brisket (5 to 6 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 8 small onions, sliced and separated into rings
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and quartered
  • 2 pounds carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces


  1. Lightly dust brisket with flour; sprinkle with pepper. In a Dutch oven, brown brisket in oil on broth sides over medium-high heat. Remove and keep warm. In the drippings, saute onions until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Return meat to pan. Combine tomato paste, salt and garlic; spoon over meat.
  2. Cover and bake at 375° for 1-1/2 hours. Slice meat across the grain; return to pan, overlapping slices. Add carrots. Cover and bake 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours longer or until meat is tender.
