Ingredients

3 lb
beef brisket, trimmed of fat
1 large
onion, coarsely chopped
2
garlic cloves, chopped
1
bay leaf
1/2 tsp
oregano
1 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper
1/2 tsp
cumin
1
oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
2
Rub the beef thoroughly with the onion, garlic, seasonings and a little vegetable oil.
3
Wrap the meat in heavy-duty foil and seal the edges all around with tight crimps.
4
Place the meat in a baking dish and bake for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the beef is tender enough to fall apart.
5
If you hear much sizzling as the meat cooks, turn the heat down.
6
When the beef is fork-tender, unwrap the top of the foil package, push aside the onions, and place the meat close to a broiler flame.
7
Allow to broil only until the top surface begins to look dry and is starting to brown.
8
Remove from the broiler and let the meat cool.
9
Shred it into long shreds with your fingers, then store them in the refrigerator (for up to a week) or freeze for use as a fill.
