I have been cooking this brisket for 25 years. The only thing that has changed is the price of the meat. The recipe never fails!
2 medium chopped onions
1 3 lb brisket
3 crushed cloves garlic
1 tsp Sweet paprika
3 tablespoons crushed tomatoes
5 medium potatoes
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp flour
Sauté onions in Dutch oven with oil until golden brown
Add crushed tomatoes and minced garlic, salt and pepper to meat and rub in all over. I insert some cloves into the meat by making little holes with tip of my knife
Take remaining spices and flour and rub onto meat
Put meat into Dutch oven on top of sautéed onions and brown both sides (3-4 minutes each side on medium heat)
Add 6 cups of water (enough to cover meat) along with whole potatoes. Cover and let simmer on low for 1 1/2 to two hours. Take out and slice and return to pot. Allow to simmer for another 1/2 hour until meat is soft.
Take slices out of pan, serve on platter with sauce on the side.
