Another of my wife’s awesome recipe’s that include Guinness…. hmmm…. must be a theme here!  This is a totally fantastic way to cook the brisket – comes out falling apart, and totally yummy.  The sauce is simple and fantastic.  Serve with traditional boiled carrots, baby reds and cabbage. Make sure to put the sauce over the veggies too when you serve!  A great way to spice them up!


Here you go:


Guinness Braised Beef Brisket


For the brisket:


1 fresh beef brisket ( about 5 pounds 
2 bottles Guinness Stout
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
4 bay leaves
Additional water to cover


For the Sauce:


1/2 cup horseradish, drained
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayo
1 tbs Worcestershire
Salt and Pepper to taste


For the brisket – Combine all ingredients in a pot large enough to hold the meat; simmer covered until tender – about 2 – 3 hours depending on the weight.  This can be done in a crock pot as well.  Remove from pot, slice thin across the grain and serve (although the meat will be falling apart, which is fine)


For the sauce: Combine all ingredients, mix well.  Refrigerate for an hour or two to let the flavors meld.
