DIRECTIONS

  • Pat brisket dry.
  • Heat the oil over moderately-high heat until rippling and brown the brisket on all sides.
  • Transfer it to a plate and season.
  • In the remaining oil, saute onion and garlic for 3 minutes and add brisket, any juices that have accumulated on plate and wine.
  • Bring to a boil and braise, covered, over low heat, for 3 hours and 30 minutes, or until it is almost tender.
  • Let apricots, apples, raisins and currants plump in 1 ½ cups hot water for 1 hour and drain fruit, reserving water.
  • In a small, dry skillet, brown the flour over moderately-high heat, stirring constantly, and remove from heat.
  • Add reserved water to brisket and whisk in browned flour.
  • Add fruit and simmer, covered, 45 minutes, or until fruit is soft and brisket is very tender.
  • Let cool, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  • Slice brisket very thin across grain and serve with fruit and sauce.
  • It will be even more flavourful if chilled overnight and reheated in sauce over moderately-low heat.
