Fall Brisket With Cider and Butternut Squash From 'The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home'

There are four brisket recipes in Nick Zukin and Michael C. Zusman's new cookbook, The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home—one for each season. All are pot-roasted in flavorful sauces and packed to the brim with vegetables. The fall version is the most streamlined, containing little more than butternut squash, red onions, and cider-wine sauce spiked with garlic and thyme. More

Richard Blais's Brisket with Coriander, Black Pepper, and Brown Sugar

With Passover right around the corner, it is the perfect time to perfect a roast brisket recipe. For something different than the standard salt, pepper, and go method, look no further than Richard Blais's Brisket with Coriander, Black Pepper and Brown Sugar. Hidden towards the back of his new cookbook, Try This at Home, this brisket is piquant enough to awaken any family member dozing in the middle of an hours-long dinner. More

Bring It On Beef Brisket

Fieri's brisket is seared and slowly braised with his homemade chili sauce that ends up being more like a tart, cooked salsa than that sweet jarred stuff. A pile of leeks, carrots, celery, and onion is placed over the brisket and cooked down to nearly melting. Once the brisket is pull-apart tender the sauce is skimmed and blended with the melted veggies, making a fresh, tangy, tomatoey gravy for a brisket so juicy it could easily be served on its own. In other words, bring it on! More

Brisket with Ginger, Orange Peel, and Tomato

The lemon and orange zest permeates the meat with bright citrus, the cider vinegar and white wine add a slightly sour note, and the ginger lends the tiniest kick. And like any brisket recipe worth its salt, it comes out of the oven exactly two and a half hours later fork-tender, ready to be sliced, sauced, and served with the sweet carrots that have been cooking in the braising liquid.

Cook the Book: Beef Sauerbraten with Red Cabbage and Pretzel Dumplings

This recipe for Beef Sauerbraten with Red Cabbage and Pretzel Dumplings is a mix of old world and new—fairly standard brisket in a sour and aromatic marinade, slow-roasted and served with melting sweet and sour red cabbage. The Franks' modern take comes in with the pretzel dumplings. Day-old soft pretzels are mixed into a rich egg dough, rolled into logs, poached, and finally pan-fried into something that I can only compare to a crisp pretzel bread pudding. When the super tender brisket, sweet cabbage, and carb-tacular dumplings come together they make for a knockout of a cold weather plate. More

Really Good Brisket

Bruce and Eric Bromberg, the brothers behind the now nine-restaurant Blue Ribbon phenomenon, have eaten their fair share of brisket. After many years of it at family holiday meals, they embarked on a personal quest to create an exceptional version that wasn't a dried-out, stringy mess. In this recipe (just in time for Passover) from their soon-to-be-published Blue Ribbon Cookbook, they turn the aromatic vegetables in the pot into a luscious, full-bodied sauce for the brisket (a special touch they learned from their mom).
