Beer Braised Brisket ~ Guinness, Onions, and Beef Brisket

I bought what has to be the smallest brisket piece I have ever seen.  Weighing in at 1.72 pounds; I am not sure what possessed the butcher to cut a piece so small, but it was perfect for my experiment.

Beer Braised Brisket

  • 1 very small brisket
  •  1 tsp whole coriander ~ crushed
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 bottle Guinness extra stout
  • 1 medium onion ~ cut into 3/8 inch rings

Season brisket with coriander, salt, pepper, and cayenne

Adjust seasonings as desired ~ you may need more if you have a larger brisket

In very hot skillet brown top and bottom of brisket.

Place onions in baking dish; lay brisket on top.  Pour beer into hot skillet to deglaze the pan.  Pour beer over brisket and cover tightly with foil.

Roast at 325 degrees for 3 hours (no peeking).  Remove from oven and allow to rest for 20 minutes before uncovering.

Serve hot or chill overnight.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
