When it comes to your springtime dinner parties, you can’t go wrong with a juicy brisket. Be sure to dazzle your guests with this wine-braised brisket recipe. It’s the perfect centerpiece to your meal and it pairs well with a cabernet sauvignon or a merlot. Here’s what you’ll need to get started.


1 beef brisket

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

5 cloves garlic, peeled

1 onion

1 1/2 cups dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc

4 cups low-sodium chicken broth

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Start by preheating the oven to 300 degrees. Using a pan on the stove, marinate the meat. Cover the brisket in a healthy dose of salt and pepper and add it to the pan of olive oil. Cook the meat on both sides until browned on both sides and then set the meat aside. In a clean pan, cook the 2 tablespoons of oil, garlic, and onion for about two minutes. Add in the wine, chicken broth and simmer over medium heat.

Put the brisket in a baking dish and pour the broth mixture over the meat. Cover the dish and place it in the oven. Cook for about two hours.

Flip the meat over and continue to cook for 45 minutes or until tender. You’re welcome to add in a few vegetables to add to the dish. Potatoes, carrots, and turnips are all great options.

Once the brisket is done cooking, be sure to add in the lemon juice and if you’d like, a little more salt and pepper.

Cut and serve will a delicious full bodied red wine.
