Easy Red Wine-Braised Brisket by Alejandra Ramos
Shredded brisket is perfect for entertaining friends or family since it doesn't require much active time from the cook. Simply combine all the ingredients and let the oven do the work! This is one of those dishes that tastes even better the second day, so you can prep it the day before and reheat it just before serving. The leftovers are perfect for using in tacos or sandwiches.
