Brooks Restaurant Brisket Recipe Perfect for Passover

March 11th, 2010 · 3 Comments

In my column today in the Sun Sentinel, I share the recipe for Brisket from Brooks Restaurant in Deerfield Beach with readers. The brisket and gravy recipe is perfect for a Passover meal.

One tip: You’re going to want mashed potatoes with this, but if you use butter – it’s no longer kosher (no meat and dairy during the same meal).

Use a rich chicken broth instead to flavor the potatoes. Margarines (non-dairy certified kosher) also work, but I found that they’re too “fake” for my taste. Adding chopped chives or roasted garlic or roasted shallots to the potatoes also boost their flavor with no dairy.

    I must be missing something, I can’t find the recipe for the Brooks brisket anywhere on this page. Can you help? It does look very good.
    Thank you.

    They remove the recipes from the Sun Sentinel site after two weeks; if you click on the link now, it should take you directly to the recipe.
