Instructions
  1. Let beef come to room temp before cooking.
  2. Salt and pepper one side of brisket. In a large pot heat 2 tbsp of oil. Place seasoned side down in pan to sear. Salt and pepper top side. Flip when beef doesn’t stick to bottom and browned. When seared on both sides remove from pot and let rest on a large plate.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of oil. On medium heat add sliced onions and cook 5 minutes till soft. Add salt and sugar and stir well. Continue cooking until very soft and caramelized, aprox 20 minutes, stirring periodically. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. In the meantime combine in a bowl beef broth and tamari or Worchestershire sauce. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  5. Return brisket to pot. Spread minced garlic over entire top of brisket. Cover with caramelized onions. Pour broth mixture around brisket and a little on top taking care not to let broth wash away garlic. Lift brisket to ensure liquid has gone underneath it.
  6. In a small bowl add 1/4 cup of water and flour and mix well until it forms a thick paste. Add more flour as necessary until paste isn’t too runny and easy to work with. Place lid on pot and seal with paste, pressing into space in between lid and rim of pot. Check for no pin-size holes where steam can escape from. Transfer carefully to oven, being careful not to disturb lid from pot. Cook for 20 minutes then lower oven temp to 325. Cook for min 4 hours and up to 5 hours.
  7. Remove brisket from oven and let cool. Crack lid open and remove brisket from pot to serving tray. Pulled beef option – While brisket is still in pot use two forks to pull beef apart. Then transfer to serving tray. Serve immediately.
