Request Pot Roast with Vegetables
1 3-4 lb. brisket, first cut flat end
4 lg Onions, chopped
Salt, pepper, paprika to taste
4 lg Potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks (up to 5)
5 lg Carrots, peeled and cut in large chunks (up to 6)
1 Green pepper, sliced - opt. for taste
1/2 lb Button mushrooms, sliced also opt.
In a large, very hot frying pan, braise the beef until well browned on both sides. Meanwhile, in a large pot (or Dutch oven) put half the diced onions. Put the meat on top of the onions. Season well with salt, pepper and lots of paprika (sweet!). Then put the remaining onions on top of the meat and add enough water to barely go up to the top of the brisket. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat, cover and simmer. Watch that you retain enough cooking liquid and continue cooking like that about 2 -3 hours, until meat begins to feel tender when stuck with a fork. DO NOT COOK THE MEAT COMPLETELY. Remove the meat, let cool slightly. Meanwhile, add the remaining vegetables and potatoes to the pot. Slice the meat according to preference (mine is thin) and place the meat as neatly as possible on top of the vegetables. Continue to simmer for an additional hour to hour and a half, until the meat is tender enough to cut with a fork.
