Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F. Rub beef with salt, pepper, ginger, and allspice. In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, tomato paste, brown sugar, onion, garlic, and 1/2 cup water.

Spoon half of the sauce into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Place brisket in dish, and spoon remaining sauce over the top. Cover tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or a double layer of regular foil.

Bake until brisket is falling-apart tender, about 3 hours. Remove brisket from dish. Skim any fat from the surface of the sauce.

Allow brisket to sit at room temperature and cool slightly as you make the sauce. Transfer sauce to a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Boil 5 minutes to reduce slightly. Slice brisket against the grain; serve with sauce.

If making the day before, prepare the recipe through the step where the brisket is fully cooked and cook the sauce; slice the brisket, return it to the baking dish with the sauce, and refrigerate, covered with plastic. To serve, reheat brisket in its sauce in a 300°F oven.
