Cover and cook about 20 minutes more or until vegetables and meat are tender. Discard bay leaves. Remove meat from pot. Thinly slice meat across the grain. Transfer meat and vegetables to a serving platter. Makes 6 servings.
Note
  • * If your brisket comes with an additional packet of spices, add it instead of the pepper and bay leaves called for in the ingredient list.
