Sweet and Sour Beef Brisket | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on September 29, 2011

This is a Cupboard Drawer Recipe that combines the east and west in a wholesome tasty treat. That is a stick to your ribs favorite of mine on a winters eve. My Mom, Dorothy would serve this with garlic new potatoes and peas, and my wife Zena would do so with Fried sliced potatoes and cabbage, or along with a rice pilaf with green beans and corn mixed in. No matter how you decide to make this stove top favorite, Do Enjoy!

2 ½ - 3 lb fresh Beef Brisket

1 can (16 oz) stewed Tomatoes

1 can (8 oz) Sauerkraut, undrained

1 cup  Applesauce

2 tbsp Brown Sugar

2 tbsp Cold Water

2 tbsp Corn Starch

Parsley sprigs

  1. In a 10 inch skillet (w cover) uncovered, over medium high heat, combine the Tomatoes, Sauerkraut, Applesauce, and Brown Sugar, Bring to a boil and reduce heat.
  2. 2. Add Brisket, spooning some of the sauce mixture over the meat. Cover and simmer at low heat for 2 ½ to 3 hours or until Brisket is tender; spooning sauce over meat occasionally. Transfer Brisket to a serving platter and keep warm.
  3. Skim off excess fat from pan juice. Combine Cold Water and Cornstarch; stir into the Tomato mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 mins past that point. Carve the roast Brisket and spoon some sauce over the meat. Pour remaining sauce in a serving dish.
  4. Garnish platter with parsely and serve Meat and sauce home-style. 

Yield 8 – 12 Servings

      Aye, sounds good! I'll have to try an adaptation of this with Elk brisket. You've got a good mix of sides to choose from as well.

      The brisket sounds delicious. I always loved creamed new potatoes and peas together. They made a meal of themselves.
