  • 250ml water

  1. Heat brisket in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until browned on all sides. Stir in water, ketchup, vinegar, onions, garlic, dark brown soft sugar and salt. Bring to the boil, then cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue simmering until tender, turning brisket occasionally, 2 hours and 30 minutes to 3 hours and 30 minutes.
  2. Remove brisket and allow to cool before slicing the meat against the grain. Place brisket slices in a 20x30cm baking tin or large plate and pour gravy on top. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove any excess fat and reheat before serving.
