Moroccan Brisket
Ave. Rating is 3 (2 ratings) Add Your Comments and Ratings

Posted by:  

Brisket is a common holiday dish -- it is easy to make and serves a large group. This Sephardi version is a wonderful variation on the traditional brisket typically made by families in the US. My father, from Morocco, taught me to appreciate cooked olives -- they add a wonderful flavor and taste quite different when cooked.

6 lb Brisket of beef
2 cloves garlic, halved
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. ginger, grated
2 large Spanish onions, diced
4 tbl. celery, chopped (with leaves)
1 small carrot, sliced very thin
1 lb green olives, pitted
16 oz stewed tomatoes, canned
1 lemon, for juice


  1. Season brisket with salt and pepper and rub with garlic (you can supplement with garlic powder).
  2. In a heavy roasting pan, sear meat on all sides using some of the olive oil. Remove and set aside.
  3. Add remaining olive oil, turmeric, ginger, and onions and saute until onions are translucent.
  4. Add celery and carrots and continue sauteing.
  5. Add tomatoes and mix thoroughly, then set aside 1/3 of the mixture.
  6. Return brisket to roasting pan. Place set aside mixture over brisket, cover and bake at 350 degrees (F) 3 hours.
  7. While brisket is baking, place olives in pot and add just enough water to cover.
  8. Bring to a boil and drain. You may repeat to remove saltiness, if desired.
  9. After three hours, let the brisket cool enough to slice (against the grain).
  10. Return brisket and mixture to a heavy pot and add olives.
  11. Reheat at 350 degrees (F) for 1/2 hour, and serve.

Good flavor. We used "Hollywood cut" brisket, which is less expensive than a regular brisket. Just remember to cut out the strip of fat when slicing it!
