Chile & Beer Braised Brisket

Chile & Beer Braised Brisket

Brisket, a naturally tough cut, becomes meltingly tender braised in beer and chiles. Try this with corn tortillas or as a filling for enchiladas or tamales. Or serve simply with rice and a green salad.

Serves 8

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 210 min.

Ingredients

  • 6 dried New Mexico, Anaheim or ancho chiles, stemmed and seeded
  • 1 14-ounce c diced tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Mexican lager, such as Corona or Dos Equis
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 pounds trimmed flat, first-cut brisket, (see Shopping Tip)
  • 1 15-ounce c pinto beans, rinsed

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Tear chiles into 1-inch pieces and place in a large bowl. Cover with hot water and let sit until softened, at least 20 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place tomatoes and their juices, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt and the drained chile pieces in a food processor. Process until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in beer.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add brisket and brown on all sides, about 6 minutes total. Pour the chile sauce over the meat and bring to a simmer.

Step 4

Cover, transfer to the oven and bake for 2 hours. Stir in beans and continue baking until the meat is fall-apart tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour more.

Step 5

Transfer the meat to a cutting board and pull apart into long shreds using two forks. Stir the shredded meat back into the sauce.
