1. Preheat oven to 275°F
2. Combine all the spices together and rub on the meat, let sit for an hour if possible
Tip: apply rub generously, shake off excess. Even if you’re making a smaller cut of meat, use these proportions for the rub, and then you can store the extra.
3. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pot/dutch oven
4. Brown the meat on all sides, just a minute or two on each side
5. Cook in the oven for 1 hour, uncovered
6. Add the broth or stock, tightly cover, and cook for another 3-4 hours, until the meat is fork-tender.
To serve sliced traditionally, wait for meat to cool, and then slice against the grain to get long slices.
Another wonderful option, if you’re having a brunch, is to “pull” the meat, using two forks, and serve topped with a poached egg. You can even serve it on top of a potato latke for a more hearty brunch feel.
A third choice is to serve as an appetizer, shredded, on top of matzah crackers, and topped with a light BBQ sauce, for a sort of “sliders” feel.
