Easiest one-pot meal ever.
I buy a brisket from Trader Joe's (any roast works). Then I brown it in my Le Creuset dutch oven, add carrots and potatoes, stock, and let it cook, covered in a 300 degree oven for 4-5 hours.
I usually make this at lunch time with the kids, then I can take it out right before dinner to carve up and serve. Here are the many variations on this recipe:
1. Use beer instead of stock. Or a can of tomatoes. Or beer with a squirt of ketchup.
2. Spice it to your taste. I like chili powder and cumin (and salt, of course!), but you can make it more Italian with oregano and thyme. Anything goes.
3. Use whatever veggies you have on hand. I would have totally browned up an onion for this meal if I had one. I've also done a sweet version with sweet potatoes, dried apricots and prunes. Then it takes on a Persian/Moroccan flavor so I add in a little ginger and cinnamon.
I know it is technically spring, but we are still having some colder nights and fog, so this really hits the spot on a Friday night.
