Step 1

Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and pre-heat to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

In a skillet over medium heat melt the butter. Stir in the onions, thyme, and bay leaf. Cover and and cook stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until tender.

Step 3

Lay the brisket (fat side up if you are using the point cut) in a heavy casserole.

Step 4

Scrap the onion and herbs over the beef, pour the broth around it, and bake, covered, for about 2 1/2 hours, or until the meat is tender. Regulate the oven temperature to maintain the meat at an even simmer.

Step 5

Scrape the onions off the meat, transfer the brisket to a pan, and keep it warm.

Step 6

Force the onions and braising liquid through a sieve into a saucepan. Set the pan over high heat and stir in the cream, bringing it to a boil.

Step 7

Lower the heat slightly and simmer briskly, skimming any scum and surface fats, until the gravy is reduced to about one-third, 10 - 12 minutes.

Step 8

Stir the horseradish into the gravy, adjust the seasoning, cover, and keep warm.

Step 9

Slice the brisket thinly across the grain and on an angle.

Step 10

Arrange the meat on plates , fanning the slices slightly, and drizzle some of the gravy over each portion. Pass the remaining gravy at the table.

This was wonderful -- my brisket was on the sale rack but this recipe made it taste wonderful and not like sale meat sometimes tastes. We will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing!
