Expert Tips

Serve steamed rice and fresh green beans with this savory dinner.

Vary the flavors of this dish by using different dried fruits. Using all apricots gives a sweeter flavor to the meat. Dried apples with a 2-inch stick of cinnamon will give a sweet, tangy fall flavor to the recipe.

Beef brisket is from the breast section under the first ribs. It is usually sold boneless. Brisket requires long, slow cooking to tenderize it and bring out the flavor.
