Rich Roast Brisket In Apple Cider Vinegar

Brisket is a cheaper cut of beef or veal, making it a popular and accessible choice for a regular Sunday roast. Cooked at a low heat over a long time, the meat turns out succulent and juicy with a deep, rich flavour. Brisket needs a bit of fat but not too much, so ask your butcher to help you find the right piece of boneless brisket for your next family gathering.

This is a simple and easy roast to make, so start it early on a Sunday morning to have it ready in time for lunch. The end result is equally delicious and impressive. Serve it as a Sunday meal with some roast vegetables or simply sliced with pickles in a sourdough or rye sandwich for something a little lighter.
