Sweet Cabbage Brisket with Thyme Roasted Potatoes

sweet package brisket

One of my most beloved Passover recipes is the Un-Stuffed Cabbage Soup from my first book, Quick & Kosher Recipes From The Bride Who Knew Nothing (that’s me!). This is an entrée inspired by the family, friend, and neighborhood favorite.

I use Grow & Behold pasture raised beef for optimal results.

For the brisket:

  • 1 (5-pound) brisket, I use Grow and Behold Pasture-raised beef brisket
  • 1 (16-ounce) bag shredded cabbage
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups tomato sauce
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

For the potatoes:

  • 4 pounds mixed fingerling and new potatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. Place brisket in a large Dutch oven or heavy pot. Add cabbage, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, sugar, vinegar, salt, and onion powder and cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook about 3 hours or until meat is very tender.
2. Meanwhile, prepare the potatoes. Preheat oven to 400°F. On a large baking sheet, toss potatoes with oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Roast 30 to 40 minutes or until tender. Serve slices of brisket with roasted potatoes and a little extra sauce.
