Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1.5kg Coles Australian No Added Hormones Beef Brisket
  • 2 brown onions, cut into wedges
  • 2 cups (500ml) beef or chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbs tomato sauce
  • 1 tbs Dijon or American mustard
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp onion salt

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 150°C. Heat oil in a frying pan over high heat. Season beef. Cook beef in the pan for 5 mins each side or until golden. Transfer to a roasting pan.

STEP 2

Arrange onion around the beef in the pan. Whisk stock, vinegar, garlic, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, mustard, paprika, onion salt, garlic powder, oregano and cumin in a jug. Pour evenly over beef, turning to coat.

STEP 3

Cover the pan tightly with foil. Roast for 3 hours or until beef is very tender and falls apart when tested with a fork. Increase oven to 180°C. Uncover and roast for a further 30 mins or until beef is golden brown and sauce thickens slightly. Set aside for 15 mins to rest.

STEP 4

Use 2 forks to coarsely shred beef. Stir to combine with pan juices. Season.
