  • 2 teaspoons canola oil 

  • 1 (5-pound) flat-cut beef brisket, trimmed

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

  • 4 cups water 

  • 3 cups dark beer 

  • 2 cups chopped carrot 

  • 1 cup vertically sliced onion 

  • 1/4 cup chopped, peeled fresh ginger 

  • 1/4 cup no-salt-added ketchup 

  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce 

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper 

  • 20 cilantro sprigs

  • 10 thyme sprigs

  • 6 orange rind strips

  • 6 lemon rind strips

  • 2 bay leaves 

  • 1 apple, cored and cut into 6 wedges

  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick

  • 1/4 cup honey 

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 



  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • In the meantime, heat oil in a heavy roasting pan. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper, adding to pan and cooking 15 minutes on each side until brown. Drain well.

  • Add water and all ingredients in the list through cinnamon. Boil, then cover with aluminum foil and bake 4 hours.

  • Remove beef to a large plate to cool. Reserve the liquid and strain through a sieve, skimming fat from surface. Return both liquid and beef to pan.

  • Cook uncovered for 2 hours until meat is tender. Remove beef, cover, and keep warm. Save cooking liquid and pour into a plastic bag. Snip one corner of the bag and drain liquid into a saucepan until only fat is left behind. Discard fat.

  • Cook liquid over medium heat until about one cup remains. Add salt, honey, and lime juice.

  • Cut beef into thin slices and serve with sauce, sprinkling with cilantro.
