Basic Beef Brisket in a Dutch Oven
Braising this cut of beef in a Dutch oven for several hours turns it in to delicious, tender brisket.
Season the brisket with salt and pepper to taste.
In a Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
Brisket is pan-seared in hot oil until both sides are browned.
Brisket should be moved to a large plate.
In a Dutch oven, cook and stir onions and garlic until the vegetables are soft, about 6 minutes.
Place the brisket back in the Dutch oven.
Drizzle the broth mixture over the brisket after combining the beef broth, ketchup, brown sugar vinegar, chili powder, bay leaves, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
