    Beef brisket with beer-braised onions

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes

    Serves: 2


    380g pack Slow Cooked Beef Brisket
    1 tbsp unsalted butter
    4 echalion shallots, quartered
    300ml Hobgoblin Ruby Beer
    1 tbsp maple syrup
    2 tsp wholegrain mustard, plus extra to serve
    450g pack mashed potato
    150g green beans


    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Prepare the brisket according to pack instructions and cook for 30 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a medium saucepan over a medium heat and, when foaming, add the shallots with a pinch of salt. Fry, stirring regularly, for 6-8 minutes until golden in places, then add the beer. Simmer for about another 15 minutes, until reduced to the consistency of a thin sauce. Stir in the maple syrup, mustard, and a good grinding of black pepper, then simmer for another minute. Add a splash of water to loosen, if needed.

    3. Microwave the mashed potato and steam the green beans according to pack instructions. Serve with the sliced brisket and beer-braised shallots, with extra mustard on the side and more Hobgoblin Ruby Beer for drinking.
