Step 1:

Cut the brisket into small 1/4″ cubes.

Step 2:

In a large pot, fry 4 pieces of bacon until crispy. Once done, remove them and set them aside for later. Do not remove the bacon grease.

Step 3:

Turn the heat to medium-high. Brown the brisket cubes in batches with the bacon fat. Make sure not to overcrowd the pot. You want the cubes to brown. Season with salt, pepper, and onion powder while browning.

Step 4:

In the same pot, add the diced white onion and a pinch of salt. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pan to remove the brown bits. Cook until brown, then lower the heat and slightly caramelize the onions.

Step 5:

Add all the spices into the pot and stir with the onions. Cook for about 2 minutes. Next, add the pressed garlic and mix. Cook for another 1 minute.

Step 6:

Put back the seared meat into the pot. Add 1/2 cup of strong black coffee and 2 cups of beef broth. Stir until well combined.

You can add the additional 2 cups of beef broth if needed. Put some fresh tabasco sauce if desired.
