Simple Brisket for Passover

As the name implies, this simple yet rich dish by Mia Adler Ozair is a crowd-pleaser year round and especially during Passover.
"Brisket is one of the staples of the Passover Seder meal that can be accompanied by a wide variety of dishes whether Ashkenazi or Sephardic.I particularly love that this dish can cook while I'm busy preparing for the rest of the meal. Bitayavon!"
