Take a 6-7 pound brisket and lay it on a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil large enough to wrap loosely around the meat and to make a tight seal. Place in a roasting pan.

Lay on top of the meat at least 6 and as many as 10 onions, slice. This looks like a lot but they shrink down and are the essence of the sauce.) Sprinkle salt, pepper and paprika, to taste over the onions. Combine 3/4 cup of kosher for Passover ketchup with an equal amount of good red wine, and pour over the meat and onions.

Bring the foil around the meat, loosely, but make a tight seal at all edges.

Roast in a 350 degree oven for two to two and a half hours, until tender Open package and test with a fork. If it's not tender, reseal and roast for another half hour.

Variation: this is especially delicious if the meat is removed from the oven, after about an hour and a half of cooking, cooled, sliced and returned to the oven for finishing. By this time, it can be cooked directly in the roasting pan, covered with the foil. Re-sealing is okay, but unnecessary. The sliced meat absorbs more of the sauce and is delicious even if you "overcook" it. This is also a great way to prepare the brisket in advance. Just refrigerate or freeze it after you slice it, and complete the cooking when you want to serve it.
