Roast Brisket Dinner

By McDonald, T.  |  Date 19th of September 2020 (1st of Tishrei 5781)

This is a great one for Rosh Hosannah or for the Gregorian New Year.  Usually served on New Years Day as part of the celebrations; nevertheless, it can make a great Sunday dinner in the UK or a great Gregorian New Years Day dinner.  


  • Brisket
  • Leaks to symbolise cutting of bad intentions against you.
  • Carrots
  • Pomegranate to symbolise many blessing
  • Roast potatoes
  • Gravy

Brisket is best cooked slowly and for a long time. I like to cook mine in the gravy. For the veg, I slice the leaks and carrots long ways and roast them in vegetable stock, butter, pomegranate and a little balsamic vinegar. The leaks and carrots are ready in about 30 minutes. It is worth noting that the veg should not be swimming in the stock. Interestingly, I like to coat the potatoes in flour and fresh rosemary before spraying with rapeseed oil.  Since it's a festival, I usually have Yorkshire pudding with it too.  For that little extra, I find horseradish source to be an excellent side condiment.
