  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 3 to 4 medium red apples (such as Jonathan, Red Delicious, Jazz or Fuji), cored, cut into 16 wedges each (about 1-1/4 pounds)
  • 3/4 cup dried sweetened cranberries

Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until Brisket and apples are fork-tender, stirring and rearranging apples once during cooking.
