Set within the beautiful Embassy Suites hotel, Café Amalfi brings diners a welcome vacation ease, with a casual atmosphere, floor-to-ceiling windows, unobstructed peaceful ocean views, and a versatile menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
One item from the restaurant’s comfortable menu is the memorable wagyu brisket, served with plenty of hearty vegetables in a savory broth. Care to try your hand at it? The recipe is below.
3 lb waygu beef brisket
3 T thyme
3 T salt
1.5 T ground black pepper
1 large yellow onion, roughly chopped
½ celery head, roughly chopped
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2.5 c red wine
4 c beef broth
4 T oil
Combine thyme, salt and pepper and rub on brisket.
In a hot, heavy-bottom pan, heat oil and sear the brisket on all parts. Add mirepoix and cook a few more minutes. Deglaze with the red wine and let it reduce almost all the way. Pour in broth until brisket is ¾ covered and lower to simmer.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover brisket with foil and place in oven for one hour. Remove foil and baste the brisket with its juices. Re-cover with foil and continue to cook for 1.5 hours.
Slice and serve or cool and refrigerate for later use.
