Serves: 6
  • 1 large onion, diced small
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bottle dark beer
  • 2 cans beef stock
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 brisket of beef, excess fat cap trimmed, about 2-3 pounds
  1. Add all ingredients except the brisket to a Dutch oven and stir to combine. Add brisket and submerge in the braising liquid. Cover and cook at 225 degrees until fork tender, 4-6 hours.
  2. Remove brisket from liquid and let rest. Strain solids from braising liquid and if desired, let excess fat float to the top and skim off. Slice or shred brisket. Braising liquid can be used as a jus or thickened with cornstarch to make a gravy.
