This hearty winter casserole uses carrots and beetroots for a sweet and earthy flavor. It’s colorful, flavorful and wonderful!

Making This Casserole AIP-Friendly

It can be a challenge adapting recipes for people who need or prefer to follow an autoimmune diet, but some of these creative challenges make for the best outcomes.

Without tomatoes in the toolkit, I had to figure out how to add some acidity. The splash of lemon juice you add at the end handles this task beautifully.

Olive oil, rather than vegetable oil, is used to brown the brisket and caramelize the vegetables.

Brisket casserole is often made with beer or wine. This AIP brisket, carrot, and beet casserole employs beef stock instead.

The Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

I like to eat this casserole over sliced roasted sweet potatoes. Not only are they readily available in the fall from the garden, they’re delicious and incredibly healthy.

They are a great source of beta-carotene, which augments your immune system, eye health, skin health and mucus membranes. One Harvard study linked beta-carotene to protective benefits against prostate cancer for younger men.

Sweet potatoes also help reduce inflammation. They’re fully stocked with choline, as well as other nutrients to keep your body happy and healthy.

You’ll also get a good boost of potassium – which is really beneficial if your blood pressure is north of normal.

AIP Slow Cooker Brisket, Carrot and Beet Casserole


  • Author: Louise Hendon
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6 hours
  • Total Time: 6 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 25 oz brisket, deboned weight (720 g)
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil, divided
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 9 oz mushrooms, sliced (255g)
  • 2 large beetroot, peeled and diced 5mm
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced 5mm
  • 2 cups (480 ml) beef stock
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Parsley to garnish
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut lengthways into wedges
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) olive oil, additional to drizzle over sweet potatoes

Instructions

  1. Trim any unnecessary excess fat from the brisket. Heat one tablespoon of the olive oil in a large pan and brown the brisket on all sides until golden and caramelized. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Heat the second tablespoon olive oil and add the onions, garlic, mushrooms, beetroot and carrots and cook over high heat until caramelized. Remove from the heat and place into a slow cooker, along with the seared brisket. Pour in the beef stock. Cover and cook for 5 hours, turning the brisket every now and then.
  3. Carefully remove the brisket with large tongs and place into a large bowl. Shred into smaller pieces using two forks. Return the shredded meat to the slow cooker and cook for an additional hour. If there is too much liquid, remove the lid and allow to simmer very gently as the sauce reduces and thickens.
  4. While the brisket is cooking, preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C. Spread the sweet potato wedges on a roasting tray and drizzle the olive oil over. Season with salt and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until softened.
  5. To serve, add a teaspoon lemon juice to the brisket mixture and season with salt, to taste. Serve over roasted sweet potato wedges and garnish with parsley.
