Expert Tips

Sometimes brisket comes in larger pieces, such as 4 to 6 pounds. If you purchase one of these larger pieces, use what you need for this recipe and freeze the remaining piece for a future meal.

For added color, sprinkle this stew with chopped curly parsley

Instead of squash, try using another root vegetable in this hearty stew.
