Honey-sweetened tzimmes is a classic dish for Rosh Hashanah. Toss the ingredients into a slow cooker in the morning.

Ingredients

frozen chopped onions

7 oz, about 2 cups

uncooked lean and trimmed beef brisket

3 pound(s), lean,trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces (boneless)

garlic clove(s)

2 clove(s), medium, minced

uncooked sweet potato(es)

2 large, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks

uncooked baby carrots

½ pound(s), cut in half if large

uncooked new potato(es)

8 small, cut in half (unpeeled)

Sun-Maid Pitted Prunes

174 gm, or other brand, (1 cup)

fresh lemon juice

4 Tbsp, divided (from 2 small lemons)

honey

5 tsp, divided

table salt

1½ tsp

black pepper

½ pinch

ground cinnamon

¼ tsp

canned beef broth

1 cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Place onion, beef, garlic, sweet potatoes, carrots, new potatoes, prunes, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of honey in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add salt, pepper, cinnamon and broth; stir well.
  2. Cook on low setting for 7 to 8 hours. About 5 minutes before serving, stir in remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and remaining 2 teaspoons of honey; cover and cook on low for 5 minutes. Yields about 1 1/2 cups of solids and gravy per serving.

Notes

For a thicker gravy, spoon 1 tablespoon of flour into a cup and stir in 1/4 cup of the tzimmes liquid until the mixture is lump-free. Add the flour mixture to the slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 10 minutes. (Adding the flour does not affect the recipe’s SmartPoints value.)
