Low-FODMAP Braised Beef Brisket; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Print Friendly Version

This is a tender and savory low-FODMAP beef brisket that is an outstanding weekend dinner.  Low-FODMAP beef brisket was a natural recipe for me to modify, since beef brisket was a Sunday night staple in my childhood home.  My mother’s beef brisket was made with onion soup mix, so there was an obvious need for a revamp to low-FODMAP!

This low-FODMAP beef brisket is made on the stovetop and oven, so a stove-to-oven casserole dish is very useful.  I also use infused oils to supplement the flavor.  These are available at an oil shop near my home as well as some of the grocery stores, but if you aren’t able to find these (check out my low-FODMAP recipe swap blog for some locations), then it is possible to infuse your own oil, or use regular oils instead.

I hope you enjoy this low-FODMAP braised beef brisket recipe for many weekends to come,  It is also adaptable for Passover.

        1. So good

          My family was so surprised at how tasty this was without any onion or garlic. Thank you for enhancing our Passover with these delicious recipes!

          1. Michelle,

    1. I made this ahead of time. I chilled the cooked brisket so that I could slice it easily, chilled the juices to remove the fat, then poured the fat-free jellied juices over the sliced meat and froze. I defrosted in the refrigerator, then warmed for about an hour in a 250 degree oven. The brisket was tender and delicious.

  1. Excellent for Rosh Hashanah

    Easy, delicious, and just right recipe for our family needs, both physical and spiritual. Thank you for creating this recipe.

  2. Delish!

    My biggest FODMAP foe is anything in the garlic and onion family, so this recipe was very helpful. My husband made it and added in mushrooms and carrots. It was so delicious! Thank you for helping me satiate my brisket craving while keeping my digestive system happy.
