Wow, this is some brisket recipe. Searing the meat before cooking it in the oven is the key. The sear helps to keep the juices inside. The result is some juicy brisket. The wine sauce and veggies infuse the brisket with incredible flavor. We loved the cleverness of blending the veggies and returning it to the sauce to create a gravy. The gravy is delicious and excellent mixed with the shredded brisket. Keep a little gravy on the side for dipping too. Whether served as slices or shredded, this brisket is so good.
