My mom’s brisket

Comforting, warm classic Ashkenazi brisket that melts in your mouth and makes your house smell like your Bubbie’s. My mother is legendary among family and friends. The best part is that it is very easy, with time being the most important ingredient. It’s a perfect dish to let sit in the oven while you work. There is a reason it’s been comfort food for generations! I doubled her original recipe because I like it extra saucey.
