This beef brisket was cooked in recognition to the festival that is the Passover.
I wanted to cook inline with the traditions held to the festival, which essentially brings the Jewish people to only eat certain foods.
This dish was delicious. A slightly different take on my own beef brisket, which was cooked a little while ago. I searched online for ideas and came across this on finecooking.com. I adjusted the ingredient quantities slightly and was very impressed with the flavours that came through. Although this dish was to be braised in the oven I used my slow cooker as my family and I had a great day planned enjoying the spring sunshine.
The beef after 6 hours in the slow cooker was just melt in the mouth delightful. The sauce was velvety with this sweet taste from the orange and then a little but not too much kick from the chilli. I served this with a thyme potato boulangere and some roasted root vegetables, which brought the dish together nicely.
