Bollito di manzo [boiled beef]

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Beef brisket
3 teaspoons Salt
1 Celery stalk, with leaves
1 Carrot
1 Onion, small
1 Bay leaf, small
3 Plum tomatoes
5 Peppercorns
1 Beef bone

~------------------------------------------------------ ~---------------- Beef brisket boiled with seasoning vegetables gives you the extra benefit of the broth to use as needed. This broth freezes very well.

~------------------------------------------------------ ~------------------ Chop all vegetables quite coarsely. Put beef and vegetables in a large pot ( a stock pot is ideal) with cold water to cover. Bring to a boil slowly over medium-low heat. As the water boils, remove the froth that forms as much as possible. Lower heat to simmer, cover the pot, and cook for 3 hours. The meat will be very tender and the broth a light brown. Remove meat from the pot and use in any recipe that calls for boiled beef. Strain broth and use immediately or freeze for future use.
