INSTRUCTIONS FOR BEEF BRISKET WITH SAVORY SAUTÉED APPLES

  1. Heat oil in stockpot over medium heat until hot. Place Brisket in stockpot; brown evenly. Remove brisket from stockpot; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Reserve 1/2 cup onion for apples. Add remaining onion and garlic to stockpot. Cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Return brisket, fat-side up, to stockpot. Add apple cider; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 hours or until brisket is fork-tender.

Add cranberries and brown sugar; cook 4 to 6 minutes or until cranberries are tender and juices are thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in walnuts. Keep warm.
