  • 2 pounds of brisket
  • 3 large leeks, cleaned and chopped
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Brisket: Preheat your stove's oven to 325°F (165°C). Season the brisket generously with salt, pepper, cumin, and smoked paprika.
  2. Sear the Brisket: Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and sear the brisket on all sides until it's browned. This should take about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the brisket and set it aside.
  3. Prepare the Leeks: In the same skillet, add the chopped leeks and minced garlic. Cook until the leeks are soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  4. Combine Ingredients: Return the brisket to the skillet, placing it on top of the leeks. Drizzle the honey over the brisket and leeks.
  5. Cook: Cover the skillet with a lid or aluminum foil. Place the skillet in the preheated oven and cook for 2.5 to 3 hours, or until the brisket is tender and easily shredded with a fork.
  6. Rest and Serve: Remove the skillet from the oven and let the brisket rest for 10 minutes. Slice the brisket against the grain and serve with the leeks and pan juices. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

This Mediterranean Honey-Glazed Brisket with Leeks is a bold and flavorful dish that brings out the best in these simple ingredients. The combination of sweet honey and aromatic leeks creates a memorable meal that will leave your guests craving more. Enjoy!
