    Manami's Note:

    Here, in America, brisket is the traditional centerpiece of Jewish holiday feasts. This entree is kosher for Passover (or can be used for any other feast). It's best to make the brisket the day before you plan to serve it. By eHow Holidays and Celebrations Editor, How to Make Passover Brisket.;)

    1. 1
      Place the parsley, peppercorn and bay leaves in a 4-inch square of cheesecloth.
    2. 2
      Bind the ends of the cheesecloth together with kitchen string.
    3. 3
      This convenient cheesecloth sack holds the herbs, and you can easily remove it from the brisket pan & set aside.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl, mix together the matzoh cake meal, salt and ground black pepper with a fork.
    5. 5
      Dust the brisket on all sides with the seasoned mixture.
    6. 6
      In a large nonstick Dutch oven or heavy casserole, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
    7. 7
      Brown the meat on all sides, turning as needed.
    8. 8
      Pour off and discard any excess fat.
    9. 9
      Add the onions, the herb packet, and the beef stock.
    10. 10
      Bring to a boil, then lower the heat so the liquid barely simmers.
    11. 11
      Cook the brisket, covered, either on top of the stove or in a preheated 325ºF oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
    12. 12
      Turn the brisket over at the halfway point.
    13. 13
      Check the brisket often; do not let the liquid boil.
    14. 14
      When the meat is tender, let it cool.
    15. 15
      Discard the cheesecloth sack.
    16. 16
      Refrigerate the brisket until the fat solidifies, about 6 hours or overnight.
    17. 17
      With a spatula, scrape off the fat and discard.
    18. 18
      Cut the brisket into half-inch slices and gradually reheat with all its juices over low heat or in an oven preheated to 250º F.
    19. 19
      Add water or stock as needed.
    20. 20
      Serve with a drizzling of pan juices and white horseradish, if desired.
