  • 2-3 lb beef brisket (mine was 3.5 lbs, just make sure it fits into the pot!)
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 4-5 potatoes, sliced into thirds and then cut in half
  • 1/2 head cabbage, chopped

  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (omit if you don’t want a little spice)
