  1. Turn on your oven to preheat to 275°F/140°C/Gas Mark 1.
  2. If there is a flavoring packet with your flat-cut brisket, discard it. Brush the meat on all sides with the browning sauce.
  3. Add vegetable oil to a large skillet; heat over medium-high heat.
  4. Place brisket into the skillet; let brown on one side (5 to 8 minutes); turn over and let brown on the other side.
  5. Add water to a roasting pan and arrange a rack set in it. Place the brisket on the rack set; top with sliced onions and garlic. Use aluminum foil to cover the pan.
  6. Cook for about 6 hours until the beef is tender.
  7. Serve with mustard or horseradish.
  8. Note: you can cook this corned beef in a slow cooker - 6 hours on low will do as well.
