    Slow-cooked barbecued beef

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus marinating and cooling time
    • Cooking time: 3 hours 20 minutes
    • Total time: 3 hours 30 minutes

    Serves: 8


    1.6kg Aberdeen Angus Beef Brisket
    50g tub Cooks’ Ingredients Smokey Steak Rub

    For the sauce
    1 onion, finely diced
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    300g tomato ketchup
    6 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    Juice of 1 lemon
    25g light brown muscovado sugar
    1 tbsp malt vinegar
    2 tsp English Mustard
    ½ tsp chilli flakes
    20g pack thyme (reserve a little to garnish)
    500g tub Cooks’ Ingredients Beef Stock


    1. Remove the string from the brisket. Unroll the meat, place on a non-metallic dish and coat with the steak rub. Cover and leave in the fridge for 12-24 hours.

    2. Preheat the oven to 150°C, gas mark 2. Place the sauce ingredients into a roasting tin large enough to hold the meat laid out flat. Season with black pepper and mix well, then add the beef and any juices to the tin.

    3. Spoon the sauce over the meat. Top with a piece of scrunched-up, damp baking parchment, followed by a large piece of foil. Seal tightly around the edges and place into the oven for 3 hours. Remove from the oven and leave, covered, in the tin until required. If longer than 30 minutes, cool completely and refrigerate.

    4. Light or preheat the barbecue, griddle or grill. Remove the meat from the sauce and place it onto the barbecue rack. Cook for 20 minutes, turning frequently, until the meat is piping hot throughout.

    5. Meanwhile, bring the sauce in the roasting tin to the boil over a high heat and simmer vigorously for 20 minutes, or until thickened and reduced by about two-thirds. Strain through a sieve into a jug, pressing well with the back of a spoon to release all the juices. Serve the meat, thinly sliced, with plenty of sauce to spoon over, garnished with the remaining thyme.
