Sweet and Sour Brisket

This is a classic and extremely delicious Jewish Kosher dish, and definitely where Jewish cooking influences Polish cooking. This tangy tomato topped brisket is so elegant when served thinly sliced on a tray. It is unbelievably easy to prepare and just melts in a bite! Mom made this for my daughter’s baptism.

Ingredients:
1 c. water
1 c. ketchup
1/2 c. vinegar
2 lg. onions , diced
cl. garlic, minced
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 T Kosher salt
4 lbs. beef brisket, trimmed

Directions:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Combine water, ketchup, vinegar, onions, garlic, brown sugar and Kosher salt in a bowl. Place the brisket in a large baking dish, pouring the ketchup mixture over the brisket. Cover (I use parchment rather than foil) and cook in the oven for 4 hours.

Remove brisket from oven, carefully release steam,and let sit 10 min. before slicing. (Or, if preparing the day ahead, refrigerate. On the day of the party, warm, then slice.)
