  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds onions

  • 12 ounce bottle of beer
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  2. Pat the brisket dry and sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat the oil in a large dutch oven or heavy oven proof pot over medium-high heat until hot, but not smoking. Brown the meat well on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a platter.

Remove from the heat and transfer half the onions to a bowl. Set the brisket over the onions in the pot, then top with the remaining onions. Add the beer, vinegar, and bouillon cube. The liquid should come halfway up the side of the meat; if it doesn’t add water. Bring to a boil.
