Wine Country Recipe: South Coast Winery Resort & Spa’s Coffee Rubbed Beef Brisket, Braised Red Cabbage and “Neep” Puree

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

This month’s wine country recipe is a great make-ahead meal since the brisket cooks “low and slow” until it’s melt-in-your-mouth tender. Since both side dishes can also be made in advance, it’s the ideal meal to put together on Sunday for a Monday night dinner that will leave your family thinking you slaved all day in the kitchen!

South Coast Winery Resort & Spa’s Coffee Rubbed Kobe Beef Brisket, Braised Red Cabbage and “Neep” Puree

1, 2-pound beef brisket
1/2 cup instant coffee powder
2  Tablespoons of your favorite BBQ rub
¼ cup salt
1 Tablespoon pepper

Preheat oven to 200˚.
Mix coffee powder, BBQ rub, salt and pepper together and rub liberally all over the brisket. Put the meat in an oven-proof pan and roast for approximately 5 to 6 hours (the brisket should be extremely tender and just about falling apart). Let meat rest for about 20-30 minutes before slicing and serving.

Braised Red Cabbage

1 head red cabbage
1 stick butter
1 cup red grenadine
1 cup balsamic vinegar

Cut the core of the cabbage out and shred remaining cabbage.  Heat up a large pot with 1 TBS of the butter; saute the cabbage briefly. Add the grenadine and balsamic vinegar and reduce over low heat. When the liquid is just about gone, add the remaining butter and continue to cook until butter is melted (the liquid tightens and should be like syrup). Toss to coat the cabbage. Turn off heat and season with salt and pepper.


5 medium to large turnips
½ lb Butter
Salt to taste
Pepper taste
Milk to cover half
Water to cover half

Peel and cut turnips into chunks. Add the turnips to a large pot and cover half way up with milk, then completely cover with water. Cook over medium heat until turnips are fork tender. Drain liquid, and mash with a potato masher. Stir in butter and seasoning.

Plate the brisket, cabbage and “neeps” together for a delicious meal.
