A Thought for Today

Putto (I)

My first attempt to making a 'putto'. June 2013


A Recipe for Today





5-6 lbs. brisket

3 onions sliced

1-2 envelopes of Lipton’s dry onion soup or Lipton’s mushroom soup packet

2-3 cans golden mushroom soup mixed with ¼ -½ cups water

4 peeled and sliced carrots

4 potatoes peeled and quartered

Turkey bag 



Place sliced onions in the bottom of the bag;

Spread the dry onion soup. Pour over the mushroom soup.

Place the brisket on top and cover with chunks of carrots and potatoes.

Close the bag.

Cook at 325˚ for 2.5 – 3 hours until fork-tender;

Remove meat from the bag. Keep the gravy;

Slice the meat at an angle across the grain;

Place the meat slices into a Pyrex rectangular dish;

Pour gravy on top and add more golden mushroom soup;

Wrap in thin foil and seal edges. Bake one more hour at 325˚. This is the key to a terrific brisket.
