        Braised Beans

        1. Preheat oven to 325F

          Bring beans, bay leaf, onion, garlic, oregano, olive oil and 1 litre of water to a simmer in a large pot. Cover with a lid and transfer to the middle rack in the pre-heated oven. Stir occasionally and add more hot water if necessary to keep beans submerged. Cook until the beans are tender, about 2½ hours. Discard the bay leaf.

        2. When tender, remove from the oven and season with coarse salt and pepper. Allow to rest uncovered at room temperature until cool. The beans will absorb liquid as they cool.

        3. Do Ahead: Beans can be made in advance and refrigerated for a few days, or frozen in portions.

        Roasted Sweet Potatoes

        1. Toss all ingredients in a bowl to coat well.

        2. Transfer to a parchment lined tray and roast in the oven at 400F until caramelized and tender.

        3. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. Approx.15 minutes.

        Avocado Salsa

        1. Combine all the ingredients and season to taste. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the salsa to reduce browning, if not used immediately.

        Sweet & Spicy Glaze

        1. Combine all ingredients and whisk to combine. Adjust the spiciness level as needed by increasing or decreasing the brown sugar.


        1. To put this dish together deep fry or air fry the brisket burnt ends until crispy and heated through.

        2. Serve on warm rice mixed with fresh cilantro, and place your ingredients around the bowl. This dish is fun and can be eaten to your liking. The combinations of hot and cold & sweet & sour and spicy; make it customizable.

        3. Try playing around with the amounts of ingredients to create your favourite version.

        4. Enjoy!
