Bubbe's Brisket

Another of Bubbe's classics! This rich pot roast melts in your mouth. Any mushrooms will work but portobello and shiitake are best. The recipe can be altered in several ways: Adding chiles gives it a kick and adding more root veggies brings out a decidedly wintry character. Have fun exploring different variations!
