Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. beef brisket
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • olive or canola oil, for cooking
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 28 oz (796 mL) can San Marzano-style tomatoes

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 300˚F.

Pat the brisket dry with paper towel and sprinkle it generously with salt and pepper.

3.

Heat a drizzle of oil in an ovenproof shallow pot or braising dish set over medium-high heat and brown the meat on all sides. Move it to one side and add the onion to the pan; cook for 3-4 minutes, until starting to soften. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.

4.

Add the butter, tomatoes, wine, and thyme to the pot, stir to combine, cover and braise for 3 hours, or until the meat is very tender.

Pull the beef apart with two forks and serve with the pasta, topped with freshly grated Parmesan.
