đź””Topping Ideas (toppings not included in carb count above)
Sour cream
Sauteed green pepper strips
Fresh cilantro

đź””Note: There are other cuts of beef you can use instead of the brisket: top round, shoulder roast, round bottom roast or a rump roast. The cooking method below is still the same.

Note: This recipe can be made in a slow cooker instead of a Dutch oven. Just set your slow cooker to low and cook for 8-10 hours.

1. Preheat oven to 325.
2. On the stove top, heat oil on medium in the Dutch oven. When oil is hot carefully add in the brisket to brown, about 4 minutes on each side. You should hear the meat sizzle as soon as it touches the pot.
3. While meat is browning, add the onion, garlic, salsa, peppers, lime juice, tomato paste, salt, spices and broth to a food processor and pulse until it turns into a thick paste.
4. Once meat is browned, remove from heat and pour the paste on top of the meat, making sure to cover all of the meat. Cover the Dutch oven and place in the oven on the middle rack. Cook 4-5 hours.
5. After 4 hours, remove the pot from the oven and, using 2 forks, try to see if the meat is easy to shred. If not, cover and place back into the oven. If the meat easily shreds, turn off oven and remove the meat to a rimmed baking pan, leaving as much of the juice and paste in the pot as possible.
6. Using your 2 forks, start pulling the beef apart until it is completely shredded. Place the shredded beef back into the Dutch oven and mix with the paste and juices. If there is too much liquid in the pot, let it simmer on the stove top for 30-60 minutes to reduce. Otherwise it is ready to serve over mixed greens or cilantro- lime cauliflower rice.
