2 to 3 pounds beef brisket

1 12-ounce package macaroni

water (you can add tomato juice or beef stock to water if you like)


Place Dutch oven directly on coals and add a little oil or shorting. Add brisket and brown well on both sides. Add water to almost cover the brisket. Cover oven and place coals on the oven lid and cook until meat is tender, about two hours.

Remove meat from cooking juices and wrap in foil to keep warm. Add macaroni to cooking juices and place oven directly on hot coals. Boil, uncovered until pasta is tender, about 20 minutes.
