Brisket, Red Wine-Braised (M)
Source: "Canadian Living Magazine," September 2002
Serves: 10

1 large onion, sliced
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 (4 pound) boneless beef brisket
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup beef stock
1/2 cup thawed cranberry cocktail concentrate
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 large cloves garlic, minced

Place onions in large roasting pan. In small bowl, combine salt, pepper, rosemary, and cayenne pepper; rub over both sides of brisket. Place brisket on onions, fat side up.

In separate bowl, stir together wine, stock, cranberry concentrate, flour, soy sauce, and garlic; pour over brisket. Cover with foil and refrigerate for at least 12 hours or for up to 24 hours.

Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven, basting every 30 minutes, until brisket is falling apart tender, about 4 hours. Uncover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Cover and refrigerate for at least 12 hours or for up to 24 hours.

Remove brisket from pan; slice thinly across the grain. Skim fat from surface of gravy; arrange slices over gravy. Cover with foil and reheat in 325°F (160°C) oven until piping hot, about 1 hour.
