  • 3 pounds beef brisket
  • 2 marrow bones
  • 3 quarts cold water
  • 2 onions, peeled and chopped
  • 2 leeks, thinly sliced
  • 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 8 whole baby carrots
  • 8 new potatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Trim as much fat as possible from brisket. Combine meat with bones and water in Dutch oven. Heat until gently simmering. Add onions, leeks, carrots, parsley, thyme, and bay leaf. Cover and simmer 2 hours. Discard vegetables. Remove meat and cut into serving pieces. Discard bones. Pour stock into large bowl, cool to room temperature, refrigerate, return meat and stock to Dutch oven and reheat. As stock is heating, steam or boil carrots and potatoes in separate pans until tender. Add to stew. Season with salt and pepper.
