Cooking Method For Korean Style Beef Brisket
Preheat the oven to gas mark 2, 160°C.
Place the joint on a chopping board and season with pepper all over. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan.
Brown the joint on all sides and then transfer to a large ovenproof dish. Using the same pan turn down the heat add the remaining oil and cook the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes until soft and transparent. Transfer to the casserole dish with the beef joint. Add the stock, soy sauce, barbecue sauce, honey, gochujang and pears. Bring to the boil, cover and slow roast in the oven for 3-3½hours until the beef is tender.
Transfer the beef to a clean chopping board and `pull’ the cooked beef apart by securing the joint with a fork and shredding the meat with another fork.
Serve with rice or in Bao buns garnished with finely chopped spring onions.
