Serves: 8


  • 1 beef brisket (1 1⁄2 lb.), trimmed
  • 1⁄4 cup peanut oil
  • 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1⁄2 cup sake
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 piece (2 inches) fresh ginger, smashed flat
  • 1⁄2 cup store-bought teriyaki glaze
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato paste


  • In a heavy pot large enough to accommodate all the ingredients, heat the oil on medium-high until barely smoking. Brown the brisket well on both sides. Wipe out the excess oil in the pot and add soy sauce, chicken broth, sake, garlic, and ginger.
  • Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce to a very gentle simmer. Cover the pot and simmer as gently as possible for about 3 hours, or until a knife inserted into the deepest part of the meat comes free with no resistance.
  • Preheat broiler. Carefully transfer the meat to a foil-lined baking sheet. Mix the teriyaki glaze with the tomato paste and pour over the brisket. Broil for about 4 minutes or until the glaze is well browned and bubbling. Serve hot.
