Brisket has become a Jewish holiday favorite, with Rosh Hashanah being no exception. If you’re planning on preparing brisket this Rosh Hashanah, here are three recipes to give you a head start in planning your holiday meal. Each of these recipes many range in flavor, but all give you the time honored tradition of this delicious cut of beef.
For moist, sweet meat that can be enjoyed throughout the Rosh Hashanah holiday, Giora Shimoni's fragrant and festive Coca Cola Brisket is a crowd pleaser. While the addition of soda may seem strange, you’ll appreciate the sweet and savory flavor. Shimoni suggests preparing this dish the day before you plan on serving it, as the taste is enhanced after sitting in the fridge. This simple recipe includes Coca Cola, red wine, honey and onion, with several other basic ingredients. We think you’ll adore this sweet and savory brisket.
Braised brisket is common for Jewish high holiday meals including Rosh Hashanah. Martha Stewart has a delicious braised brisket recipe that’s sure to please everyone sitting around your table this Rosh Hashanah. Garlic, dry red wine, tomato paste and chicken stock are used to season and flavor the brisket. Thinly sliced against the grain, your mouth will be watering when it comes time to start the Rosh Hashanah meal.
One way to enhance the smoky richness of your Rosh Hashanah brisket is with the earthy bitterness of ground coffee. While, smoky, coffee flavor may not be a traditional take on Rosh Hashanah brisket, we think it may work it’s way into your holiday meats more frequently after you taste this. Onions, potatoes, garlic, smoked cinnamon, cardamon and of course ground turkish coffee or espresso make for a flavorful Rosh Hashanah brisket.
