Ginger Beef Brisket with Dried Fruits

The perfect Rosh Hashanaha recipe for beef brisket. Made with sweet dried fruits and a little spicy crystalized ginger.


  • Prep Time : 3-1/2 hours min
  • Ready Time : 3 min


6 to 8 servings


  • 5 pound boneless beef brisket, flat cut
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped onions
  • 3 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups apple juice or apple cider
  • 12 dried figs or dried plums
  • 12 dried apricots
  • 3 tablespoons crystallized ginger, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water


1 Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat until hot. Brown brisket on all sides; remove from pan.
2 Add onions and garlic to pan; cook and stir 3 minutes or until onions begin to soften. Transfer onion mixture to 5-quart saucepot or Dutch oven.
3 Place beef brisket fat side up on top of onions and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour apple juice around brisket; bring to a boil. Cover tightly; reduce heat and simmer 2 hours.
4 Add figs, apricots and ginger to pan. Continue cooking an additional 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until brisket is fork tender.
5 Remove brisket from pan; keep warm. Strain cooking liquid, reserving fruit mixture.
6 Skim fat from cooking liquid. If necessary, continue cooking the liquid until reduced to 2 cups. Stir in cornstarch mixture. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly.
7 Trim excess fat from brisket. Carve brisket across the grain into thin slices. Arrange beef on platter with fruit. Serve with sauce.

  1. This sounds delicious and will definitely try it. I like the tangy apricots and the robust crystallized ginger as a flavor counterpoint. It’s hard to rate since I haven’t actually tasted it, but give it a 5 just because it sounds so wonderful.

    This was very good! I had to substitute powdered ginger for the crystallized so it would have been even better, but I was very happy with the results–and so was my husband!

  3. Great recipes, I love the ginger in this recipe.
