Add rich flavor to brisket with this savory filling.



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 shallots, finely diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped, plus 2 cloves garlic, crushed or 2 cubes Gefen Frozen Garlic

  • 1/4 cup Peppermill Porcini Powder

  • 1/2 cup Alfasi Cabernet Sauvignon or other dry red wine


  • 1 4 pound second cut brisket

  • kosher salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

Pan Sauce

  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Prepare the Filling


Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.


In a sauté pan over low heat, add olive oil, chopped shallots, chopped garlic and crushed garlic. Sauté until soft and translucent, about eight minutes. Add porcini powder and stir to combine.


Turn up the heat and add red wine and soy sauce. Cook until reduced by half. Let cool completely. Add panko and parsley. Set aside.

Prepare the Brisket


Butterfly the brisket: Lay the brisket on a cutting board with the grain running up and down. Use a long knife such as the Wusthof Super Slicer, holding the knife blade flat so that it’s parallel to the board. Make a horizontal cut into the side of the brisket through the thickness, stopping short of the opposite edge, taking care not to cut all the way through.


Open up the meat like a book so you have a large rectangular slab. Pound brisket until thin and even. Season generously with salt and pepper. Spread panko mixture over the surface. Roll up brisket and tie with butchers’ twine. Sprinkle once again with salt and pepper.


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil, then sear the brisket roll on all sides to brown (about two minutes each side). Set pan aside to deglaze for pan sauce. Remove the brisket and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Place in a roasting pan and roast for about an hour and 20 minutes, until the internal temperature of the roast is 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the roast rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Prepare the Pan Sauce


Set the skillet over low heat.


Add 1/2 cup chicken stock to the pan. Using a wooden spoon, stir gently to loosen the bits from the pan and dissolve into the sauce.


Add the red wine and salt and pepper to taste. Spoon over brisket and serve.
