Normal Cooking: Follow the recipe from step 2 to the end of step 3. Put the meat and vegetables into a deep pan and pour in the stock. Add the garlic cloves, bay leaf and thyme and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for about 3 hours until the meat is tender. Continue as for step 7.

Preparation

Kitchen utensils

1 Skillet, 1 Casserole dish, 1 Measuring cups, 1 Cutting board, 1 Large knife, 1 Small knife, 1 Tablespoon, 1 Wooden spoon, 1 Brush, 1 Salad spinner

Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the slow cooker if necessary – see manufacturer’s instructions.
2.
Heat the oil in a frying pan set over a moderate heat. Season the meat with salt and pepper and brown on all sides in the hot oil. Remove and set aside.
3.

Add the leeks, carrots, and onions to the pan and saute for 5 minutes until softened.

4.
Put the leeks, carrots, onions, garlic and bay leaf in the slow cooker pot. Season with salt and pepper. Place the beef on top of the vegetables.
5.
Pour in the stock. Add the thyme, pushing the sprigs under the liquid.
6.

Cover and cook on low for 10 -11 hours, or high for 6-7 hours. Beef is ready when it is meltingly tender and easy to slice or shred. Discard the thyme and bay leaf.

7.
Remove the brisket and keep warm. Leave for 15 minutes before slicing and serving with the vegetables and gravy.
