Preparation

  1. Season the brisket with salt and pepper and dust it with flour. In a large, heavy pot or Dutch oven with a tight lid, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil over high heat. Add the brisket and brown on all sides. Transfer the meat to a plate.
  2. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pot and reduce the heat to medium low. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, oregano, red wine and stock and bring to a boil.
  3. Return the meat to the pot, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 2 hours. Stir in the olives, mustard and tomato paste, and simmer for an additional hour, until the meat is very tender.
  4. Transfer the meat to a platter. If the sauce in the pot seems too watery, simmer, uncovered, until it thickens slightly. Season the sauce with the salt and pepper and pour over the meat. Serve immediately.
