    • 1 1/2 lbs beef brisket
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • Black pepper, to taste
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 cup pearl onions
    • 1 cup button mushrooms
    • 3 cups water
    • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
    • 2 parsnips, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces

    • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme

    • Season the brisket with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the brisket and sear for about 4 minutes on all sides, or until browned. Add the garlic, onions and mushrooms and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until garlic is fragrant.
