Try potatoes with the poached beef. Add 2-inch squares of small potatoes into the casserole along with 1/2 cup of water 1 hour before removing the meat. Sprinkle a generous amount of parsley into the dish. Cover and bake the potatoes for 1 hour. No need to add any salt. Serve the potatoes with the poached beef along with homemade mustard sauce.

1. What is the definition of 'no' for onion and celery in this recipe - poached beef brisket? 2. Under tip,in this recipe, I assume the potatoes go into the casserole with the brisket one hour before the brisket is done or can I put them in a separate casserole to roast? Looking forward to your prompt reply. Have brisket in the oven.

Hi Marcia, 1) They use "no" as an abbreviation of number in some parts of the world . 2) You should add the potatoes to the meat 1 hour before removing it. However you can also do it in a separate casserole if you want. That way your potatoes will not get the meat flavor.
