DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Rub the brisket with the salt and pepper and place it, fat-side-up, in a roasting pan. Pour in enough water to come about two-thirds up the sides of the brisket. Sprinkle the carrots and garlic into the water around the roast.
  • Roast the brisket, without covering it, until it is browned and tender, about 3 hours, spooning the pan drippings frequently over the meat.
  • If necessary, add a little extra water during the cooking to keep the liquid at least halfway up the sides of the brisket. Transfer the brisket to a serving platter.
  • To make the delicious gravy: Skim off any fat from the drippings into large skillet. You need 3 tablespoons of fat; if necessary, just add a little butter to equal this amount.
  • Strain the drippings into a large heatproof measuring cup, reserving the vegetables for the gravy, if you wish.
  • Heat the fat in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until it begins to soften. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the flour mixture bubbles all over, about 2 minutes.
  • Gradually pour in the straining drippings and continue cooking and whisking until the gravy thickens. Remove the gravy from the heat and stir in the reserved vegetables, if you wish.
  • To serve: Slice the brisket on the diagonal, about 1/2-inch thick. Serve it up hot with a generous helping of gravy ladled over the top. This goes great with mashed potatoes.
