1 beef brisket (4½ pounds)
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3 large onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup beef broth
1 can (14½ ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained

1 Tablespoon dried thyme
1 Tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 bay leaf
1 pound carrots, cut into ½ inch slices


1. Season brisket with salt and pepper.

3. In the same saucepan, sauté onions and garlic until tender.

4. Add the beef broth, tomatoes, red pepper, thyme, rosemary and bay leaf. Stir well to combine ingredients, heat through.

5. Pour mixture over brisket in baking dish.

6. Cover tightly and bake at 325° for 2 hours, basting occasionally.

7. Add carrots; bake 1 hour longer or until meat is tender. Discard bay leaf.

8. Let stand for 10 minutes, then slice beef across the grain. Serve with sauce over brisket slices.
