Spiced slow-roasted brisket


Serve this brisket with a green salad, or roasted vegetables of your choice.

You'll need

2 tbsp fat, such as duck fat, lard, ghee or coconut oil 2 kg piece of lean beef brisket 4 golden shallots, skin-on, halved lengthways 1 garlic head, skin-on, halved and broken into pieces 8 thyme sprigs   Spice rub 2 tbsp each smoked paprika and sweet paprika 2 tsp coarsely crushed black pepper 1 tsp each cayenne pepper and turmeric

Method

  • 01
  • For spice rub, mix ingredients in a bowl with 1 tbsp sea salt.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place a large flameproof roasting pan over high heat. Rub fat over brisket, then season to taste and brown meat on all sides (3-4 minutes). Remove from heat, transfer to a large plate or board and, when cool enough to handle, cover fat side of brisket with spice rub to coat evenly.
  • 03
  • Place shallots, garlic and thyme in the roasting pan in a single layer and sit brisket on top. Pour in 375ml water and roast brisket uncovered until shallots and garlic are golden brown (20-25 minutes). Reduce heat to 150C, cover brisket with a wet piece of baking paper, then tightly cover pan with a double layer of foil and roast brisket, adding more water to pan as necessary to prevent base from burning, until meat is very tender (3½-4 hours). Increase oven to 180C, spoon pan juices over meat and roast uncovered again until deep golden brown (15-20 minutes). Set aside covered to rest (15 minutes), then serve, thickly sliced.
