A Beef Brisket Pot Roast is a comforting and hearty meal, perfect for a family gathering or a cozy weekend dinner. Slow-cooked until tender, the brisket is complemented by a medley of vegetables and a rich, flavorful broth.


  • 3-4 lb beef brisket
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 celery stalks, cut into chunks
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine (optional – can substitute with additional beef broth)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
  2. Season the beef brisket on all sides with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large Dutch oven or oven-safe pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the brisket and sear on all sides until browned. Remove the brisket and set aside.
  4. In the same pot, add the onions and garlic. Sauté until softened.
  5. Add the carrots and celery, and cook for a few minutes.
  6. Stir in the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, thyme, and bay leaf.
  7. Place the brisket back into the pot. Add the beef broth and red wine. The liquid should come up about halfway to the brisket. Bring to a simmer.
  8. Cover the pot with a lid and place it in the preheated oven. Cook for about 3 hours.
  9. After 3 hours, add the potatoes to the pot. Continue cooking for another hour or until the brisket and vegetables are tender.
  10. Remove the brisket from the pot and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.
  11. Adjust the seasoning of the broth if needed. Serve the slices of brisket with the vegetables and broth.
  12. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.
