Braised Brisket and Creamy Wild Mushrooms
Braised Brisket and Creamy Wild Mushrooms (Tyler Florence)
4 hrs., 15 mins.
4 large garlic cloves, smashed
1/2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
4 sprigs fresh rosemary, needles striped from the stem and chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 (4 pound) beef brisket, first-cut
Freshly ground black pepper
4 large carrots, cut in 3-inch chunks
3 celery stalks, cut in 3-inch chunks
3 large onions, halved
2 cups dry red wine
1 (16-ounce) can whole tomatoes, hand-crushed
1 handful fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 bunch thyme
3 bay leaves
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 lb. mixed wild mushrooms (oyster, portabello, crimini, shitake),
3 cloves garlic
3 Tbsps. horseradish
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup brisket stock (strained brisket jus)
4 sprigs of thyme
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 325 F. On a cutting board, mash the garlic and 1/2
teaspoon of the salt together with the flat side of a knife into a paste
form. Add the rosemary and continue to mash until incorporated. Put the
garlic-rosemary paste in a small bowl and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil;
stir to combine. Season both sides of the brisket with a fair amount of
kosher salt and ground black pepper. Dust brisket generously with flour.
Place a large roasting pan or Dutch oven over medium-high flame and coat
with the remaining oliveoil. Put the brisket in the roasting pan and sear
to form a nice brown crust on both sides. Lay the vegetables all around
the brisket and pour the rosemary paste over the whole thing. Add the wine
and tomatoes; toss in the parsley, thyme and bay leaves. Cover the pan
tightly with aluminum foil and transfer to the oven. Bake for about 3 to 4
hours, basting every 30 minutes with the pan juices until the beef is fork
tender. Remove the brisket to a cutting board and let it rest for 15
minutes. Strain the stock and spoon out some of the excess fat. Meanwhile,
prepare the mushrooms. Heat up a large saute pan and approximately 2
tablespoons of olive oil. Add the chopped garlic, the mushrooms and thyme.
Cook until a nice light brown color develops then add brisket stock and
continue to simmer and reduce -- mixture should be thick enough to coat
the back of a wooden spoon. When thickened, finish with the horseradish,
sour cream and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
To serve, slice the brisket across the grain (the muscle lines) at a
slight diagonal and top with the creamy wild mushrooms.
