  • 1 fennel bulb, cut into wedges
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 2 large vine tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 anchovy fillets in oil
  • 150ml Marsala dolce (or use sherry or white wine)

Step by step

Get ahead
The brisket is even better if it’s cooked a day ahead, shredded and reheated in the sauce. It also freezes well
  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C, fan 120°C, gas 1. Pat the brisket dry and season well. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in an ovenproof casserole and brown the brisket all over. Remove to a plate, and cook the onions in another 2 tablespoons of oil for 8-10 minutes until soft.
  2. Add the oregano and spices and cook for a minute, stirring, then add the garlic, fennel, peppers, tomatoes, bay leaves and anchovies, and stir. Add the Marsala. Nestle the brisket back in the casserole, put the lid on and cook in the oven for 5-6 hours (turning half way) until fall-apart tender; a lovely sauce will form as it braises.
  3. When the brisket is ready, mix the salsa ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Shred the brisket on a board with 2 forks. Spoon the vegetables and some of the sauce from the casserole into a warmed dish and top with the shredded brisket. Add the salsa, and scatter with herbs. Pour the rest of the sauce into a jug to serve alongside, with lime to squeeze over.
