Stella Braised Brisket

Tender, lots of flavor and can you imagine how good your house will smell...that describes braising a brisket in Stella Artois will do.  I made a simple rub but you can use just salt and pepper and still have a wonderful result.

Stella Braised Brisket

Rub ~

2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Brisket - mine was 2.5 pounds
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup beef broth
1 pint Stella Artois
4 carrots, pared and sliced into 2" pieces
1 onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, smashed

Remove any excess fat from brisket.  Combine the spices together in a small dish and then rub on both sides of the brisket.  Heat the olive oil in the bottom of a dutch oven. Sear the brisket on both sides.  Add in the vegetables along the side and then pour the broth and Stella Artois.  Bake for 3 hours at 325°.  Remove from pan and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
