DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse a beef brisket in cold water to remove any brine and place into a large pot.
  • Pour beer over the brisket and add water until the meat is covered by the liquid.
  • Add onions, bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a rolling boil.
  • Cover pot and reduce heat to medium-low for a gentle boil.
  • Cook for 4 hours or until meat is fork-tender, skimming foam occasionally.
  • Add carrots, potatoes and place cabbage quarters on top of the meat.
  • Cook for an additional half-hour until the vegetables are tender. Turn off heat.
  • Remove the brisket from the broth and allow it to rest for 10 minutes on a cutting board. Slice against the grain in 1/4-inch-thick strips.
  • Serve on a warm platter, arranging carrots and cabbage around the meat strips in the center of the platter.
