Brisket with Stone Ground Mustard

Brisket Ingredients:
1 (3-pound) beef brisket
6 cups water
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
4 ribs celery, cut into 2-inch pieces
4 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 medium onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
2 bay leaves

Sauce Ingredients:
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup country-style Dijon mustard
1/2 cup currant jelly
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  1. Place brisket in 5-quart saucepan or Dutch oven; add water. Add all remaining brisket ingredients; bring to a full boil. Cover; cook over medium-low heat until brisket is fork tender (2 1/2 to 3 hours). Remove bay leaves. Place brisket and vegetables on serving platter; reserve 1 1/2 cups broth.
  2. Place 1 1/2 cups reserved broth in same pan; stir in flour with wire whisk. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth and bubbly (2 to 3 minutes). Stir in all remaining sauce ingredients. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened (4 to 5 minutes). Serve over carved brisket and vegetables.
