    4 large garlic cloves, smashed
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
    4 sprigs fresh rosemary, needles striped from the stem and chopped
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    1 (7 pound) beef brisket, first-cut
    Coarsely ground black pepper
    4 large carrots, cut in 3-inch chunks
    3 celery stalks, cut in 3-inch chunks
    4 large red onions, halved
    2 cups dry red wine
    1 (16-ounce) can whole tomatoes, hand-crushed
    1 handful of cilantro
    3 bay leaves


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

On a cutting board, mash the garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt together with the flat-side of a knife into a paste. Add the rosemary and continue to mash until incorporated. Put the garlic-rosemary paste in a small bowl and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil; stir to combine.

Season both sides of the brisket with a fair amount of kosher salt and ground black pepper. Place a large roasting pan or Dutch oven over medium-high flame and coat with the remaining olive oil. Put the brisket in the roasting pan and sear to form a nice brown crust on both sides. Lay the vegetables all around the brisket and pour the rosemary paste over the whole thing. Add the wine and tomatoes; toss in the cilantro and bay leaves. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil and transfer to the oven. Bake for about 3 to 4 hours, basting every 30 minutes with the pan juices, until the beef is fork tender.

Remove the brisket to a cutting board and let it rest for 15 minutes. Scoop the vegetables out of the roasting pan and onto a platter, cover to keep warm.
