Sweet and Savory Brisket
with Mushrooms & Caramelized Onions

Surprising ingredients give this dish a wonderfully rich flavor. The brisket can be made two days ahead.

½ cup olive oil, divided
1 ¾ pounds onions, halved and sliced
2 pounds mushrooms, sliced
5 pounds brisket

1 ¾ cups chicken broth
¼ cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons Maxwell House
instant coffee
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon dried thyme

Pre-heat oven to 325°F.
Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in large skillet. Add onions and sauté over low heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Heat two more tablespoons of oil in the same pan. Add the whole mushrooms and sauté until they are brown and the juices have evaporated, about 20 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with onions. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the same pan. Season brisket with salt and pepper and add to the pan fat side down. Cook until brown, about 6 minutes on each side, and transfer to a plate.

Spread half of the mushrooms and onions in a large roasting pan. Top with the brisket, fat side up, and top with the remaining mushrooms and onions. Whisk together broth, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, coffee, flour, and thyme in a medium bowl. Pour over brisket and cover.Bake 45 min. or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Cut into 16 pieces. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
Bake for 2 hours and remove cover. Spoon juices over meat and vegetables, cover and cook for an additional
45-60 minutes. Cool brisket and slice across the grain and spoon over gravy and vegetables. Cover and chill or reheat to serve. Makes 20 servings.
