Recipe ingredients and directions:
Yield: 8 servings
1 beef brisket, about 3 1/2 pounds
2 pounds carrots, peeled, sliced
4 cups beef stock or broth
2 1/4 cups water
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3 tablespoons potato starch
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, thickly sliced
1 box (12 ounces) pitted prunes
1/4 cup honey
freshly ground pepper to taste
Snipped fresh chives for garnish
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put brisket, carrots, stock or broth, 2
cups water, cracked pepper and thyme into a 6-quart Dutch oven.
Bake, covered, 2 hours.
Mix remaining 1/4 cup water and potato starch until smooth. Add
honey and stir into Dutch oven. Add sweet potatoes and prunes.
Cover and continue baking until meat and vegetables are fork-tender,
about 1 more hour. (Can be made the day before to this point,
covered and refrigerated. Skim fat before reheating over low heat.)
To serve, transfer meat to cutting board. Cut into thin slices.
Season vegetable mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish
meat and vegetables with chives if desired.
