Wine-Braised Brisket

My wonderful daughter-in-law bought me this fabulous cookbook, THE GEFILTE MANEFESTO by JEFFREY YOSKOWITZ & LIZ ALPERN. I plan on trying to make as much of these recipes as I can. They all look very interesting and delicious. The first one I have tried is the WINE-BRAISED BRISKET WITH BUTTERNUT SQUASH. It uses a whole bottle of white wine which adds a lovely flavour. There is a lot of liquid in this recipe & the brisket is submerged in it the entire cooking time. This leads to kind of a ‘boiled’ soft brisket which we quite enjoyed. I had frozen butternut so I used that instead of a fresh one, also chicken broth instead of beef. We found the brisket had a subtle flavor, so different from the usual brisket recipes that I make.  I was looking for a link to the recipe and found one on Epicurious.com so I will include the link & also a link to THE GEFILTE MANEFESTO on Amazon. I hope you give this recipe a try!

I am not sure why my brisket isn’t as brown as the picture in the recipe, but it was good!
