  • Summary

    The combination of pomegranates and walnuts has been used in Persian cuisine for thousands of years, as both a sauce and marinade for meats. Here it is both. The tartness of the pomegranate brings brightness and balance to the rich brisket. Be sure to marinate the brisket at least 24 hours in advance.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (7-pound) beef brisket with fat, fat trimmed to 1/4" thickness
    • 2 teaspoons (or more) kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon (or more) freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 head of garlic, peeled
    • 1 cup walnuts
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 3 cups pomegranate juice, divided
    • 1 1/2 cups (packed) mint leaves (about 1 bunch)
    • 1/2 cup shelled roasted, salted pistachios
    • 2 garlic cloves
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
    • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • A large roasting pan
