Ugga-Bugga!  Caveman like!  Grass-fed brisket.  Sometimes I go to great lengths to add flavor to my brisket, but this time I went so simple, and it still came out great!
I browned the brisket in a cast iron skillet, then while it was warm I liberally sprinkled black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder on both sides (all ingredients all organic, all the time), and then put it in a dutch oven over a bed of celery and carrots (I was out of onions).  Cooked for 3 hours at 350F degrees.  No onions, no sauce, no stock, no water.  And the meat still came out super tender and juicy.  No, it wasn’t as good as when I make it with my apricot sauce, or other preparations, but it was still amazing!  Sometimes you don’t need to go through a whole production to cook great food.  It’s the simplest things that make me the happiest.  :-)
