Cooking a perfect brisket doesn’t have to involve many steps and ingredients. Sometimes, the simpler, the better, which is definitely the case with this brisket. The braising method and simple ingredients heighten the flavor of the meat and create a super-tender brisket – and lots of sauce. Yum!
In a pot, heat oil. Add onion, salt, and pepper and sauté until translucent, about seven minutes.
Add wine and deglaze, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pot and mixing them into the onions.
Add tomatoes and paprika.
Bring to a simmer, add brisket, and cover.
Simmer until meat is tender, about two and a half to three hours.
