  • 4 lb Beef Brisket (Whole, Lean Only)
  • 2 tsp Salt

  • 3 tbsp Sugar Free Apricot Preserves
  • 1 large Onions, raw
  • 3 medium Carrots, raw


  1. Heat oven to 475°F.  Season brisket with salt, paprika and pepper. 
  2. Place brisket fat side down in a Dutch oven. Scatter quartered onions and diced carrots around the beef. Cook 15 minutes.
