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
