How to slow cook your beef brisket. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Put the beef brisket into a large roasting tin and tuck the garlic and thyme under it.
Massage the oil into the brisket and season well. Place in a preheated oven and roast for 30 minutes. Turn the temperature down to 140°C/120°C/gas 1, cover the beef with foil and return to the oven for 4 hours.
Increase the oven temperature to 160°C/fan 140°C/gas 3. Baste your brisket again, add potatoes and onion and cook for a further hour until the brisket joint has crisped up and the potatoes and onion are cooked through.
Serve your delicious roast beef brisket with Yorkshire pudding and gravy.
