Weight Watchers Roasted Brisket Recipe
– 1 large onion, sliced
– 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
– 1 pound baby carrots
– 5 oz mushrooms, sliced (about 2 to 2 1/2 cups)
– 2 1/2 pounds raw lean beef brisket, trimmed, use brisket from the flat half
– 28 oz canned crushed tomatoes
– 1 tsp paprika
– 3/4 tsp Kosher salt
– 1/4 tsp black pepper
– 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
– 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
– 2 tbsp sugar
TIP: For added color and flavor, substitute a cup of frozen green bell pepper strips for half of the mushrooms.
Preheat oven to 325ºF.
Spread onion slices and garlic on bottom of a nonstick roasting pan; top with carrots and mushrooms. Arrange beef over vegetables.
In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, paprika, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and sugar; stir to dissolve sugar.
Pour tomato mixture over brisket and vegetables; tightly cover with a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Roast for 2 hours and then remove from oven; uncover, stir and use pan juices to baste meat. Return brisket to oven and roast for about 1 hour more, uncovered, basting every 15 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Serve meat and vegetables with sauce spooned over top. Entire recipe makes 8 servings.
