  Beef brisket 4 Pound
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm), finely chopped
  Ginger root piece 1 , peeled and finely chopped (1 1/2-inch)
  Red wine vinegar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dry vermouth 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Onions 2 , finely chopped
  Whole cloves 8
  Bay leaves 2
  Pickling spice 2 Teaspoon
  Whole black peppercorns 1 Teaspoon
  Dry mustard 1⁄2 Teaspoon

1. Rub brisket all over with salt. Place brisket in a large bowl and sprinkle garlic and ginger root over top.
2. Combine vinegar, water, vermouth, sugar, onions, cloves, bay leaves, pickling spice, peppercorns, mustard and vegetable oil. Pour marinade over brisket. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight, turning once.
3. Remove brisket from marinade and reserve 2 cups (500 ml) of marinade. Pat meat with paper towels. In a Dutch oven, heat oil; add brisket and cook, turning once or twice, for about 10 minutes, until brown.
4. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Pour reserved marinade over brisket; cover and bake in oven for 2 to 3 hours, or until meat is tender.
5. Let stand 10 minutes to firm. Remove meat to board and slice. Cover and refrigerate until required. Place pan juices in refrigerator until fat layer hardens.
6. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).
7. Arrange brisket slices in 8 1/2 x 12 1/2-inch (21x31-cm) shallow casserole. Remove fat from pan juices and strain juices into a saucepan. Add crushed ginger-snaps. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes, until thickened. Pour over brisket slices.
8. Reheat in oven about 15 minutes, until hot. Serve immediately.
