Lots of people spend lots of time thinking about brisket, unfortunately I am not one of those people. So I usually defer to experts when it comes to cooking up a delicious brisket. This particular recipe comes from Gail Simmons of Food & Wine and Top Chef fame, and is perfectly delicious. The horseradish makes a perfect accompaniment to bring out the flavors of the beef and root veggies. Make it as a main dish and then serve up the leftovers in yummy brisket sandwiches. You can also make this dish in the crockpot, just sear off the beef, toss everything in the slow cooker, and let cook for 8 hours.
