Braise your brisket in tomatoes and brown for a sweet and savory flavor.


  • 4-5 lb brisket
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 2 onions, halved and quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp Schnucks Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 28 oz Schnucks crushed tomatoes
  • Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F
    2. Combine flour, salt and pepper and evenly coat brisket with flour mixture. In large heavy-bottom pot or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat and sear brisket on all sides for about 5 minutes per side until a golden crust forms.
    3. Transfer brisket to large plate or platter and add onion and garlic to pot. Stirring frequently, scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of pan and cook onions until translucent. Stir in Cajun seasoning and smoked paprika.
    4. Add brisket and juices back to pot and nestle on top of the onions. Add brown sugar and crushed tomatoes, making sure to coat the brisket. Cover and braise in oven for 2 hours.
    5. Carefully remove from oven and transfer brisket to cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice brisket into ΒΌ-inch slices making sure to cut against the grain. Place brisket back in pot and spoon the tomato braising liquid between slices.
    6. Cover and reduce oven temperature to 325°F and cook for another hour or until brisket is fork tender. Remove from oven and let rest for 20 minutes before serving.
    7. To serve, remove brisket from pot and arrange slices on platter. Drizzle with braising liquid or serve sauce on the side.
