- Prep Time
½ lb trimmed lean beef brisket
¼ tsp ground black pepper
¾ cup low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
1 yellow onion, sliced into half-moons
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 sweet potato, cut into chunks
1 red onion, cut into chunks
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and cut into chunks
2 beets, cut into chunks
½ cup apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp chopped raw unsalted walnuts
1 bunch beet greens and stems, ribs and stems chopped into ½-inch pieces and greens chopped into 2-inch pieces
1: Arrange 1 rack in upper third and 1 rack in bottom third of oven. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
2: Season beef with pepper. Heat an oven-proof 3-qt pot on medium-high. Add ¼ cup broth and beef and cook for 3 minutes per side, until browned. Transfer beef to a large plate and tent with foil.
3: To pot, add yellow onion and sauté, stirring up browned bits from bottom, until beginning to turn golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant and onion is golden brown, about 1 minute. Add beef and enough water to just barely cover. Cover with lid or foil and bake on lower rack for 1½ hours; increase oven to 400˚F and cook for 1½ more hours.
4: About 1½ hours before beef is done, line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss potato, red onion, apple, beets, remaining ½ cup broth, vinegar and walnuts. Spread on sheet and bake on upper rack for 30 minutes. Stir and bake for 30 more minutes, until just beginning to brown.
5: Fill a medium pot with about 2 inches water and fit with a steamer basket. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium high and add beet stems and ribs to basket. Steam for 1 minute. Add beet greens and steam for 1 more minute, until bright green. Serve beef with onion mixture, potato mixture and beet greens and stems.
