  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 300°F. Mix espresso powder, sugar, paprika, cumin, chile powder, and salt in a small cup. Set aside spice rub.

  • Step 2

    Heat oil in a large, heavy Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add brisket and brown well on all sides, about 6 minutes. Remove brisket to a baking sheet to cool slightly.

  • Step 3

    Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings from pot. Add onions and garlic and sauté for 4 minutes or until softened. Stir in beer, diced tomatoes (with juices), and barbecue sauce. Turn off heat.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, rub brisket all over with spice rub. Place brisket, fat-side up, into sauce mixture in pot and bring to a boil. Cover pot and place in the oven. Braise for 41⁄2 hours or until brisket is fork-tender. Let cool completely in sauce. Skim off and discard fat from the surface of the sauce. Remove brisket and puree sauce in pot using a handheld blender (or puree in a blender). Return brisket to sauce in pot and cover. (You can make this up to 2 days ahead and keep it in the fridge.)

  • Step 5

    To serve, heat brisket in sauce over low heat for 30 minutes, or until fork-tender. Transfer brisket to a cutting board; trim fat, then shred with 2 forks into bite-size pieces. Return shredded beef to sauce in pot and toss until coated. Serve on rolls topped with coleslaw.

  • Step 6

    TANGY COLESLAW Toss 1 medium green cabbage, cored and finely shredded; 11⁄2 cups finely shredded carrots; 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh cilantro; and 1⁄3 cup finely diced red onion in a large serving bowl until combined. In a small bowl, whisk together 1⁄3 cup cider vinegar and 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar until sugar dissolves. Whisk in 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon ketchup, 1 teaspoon yellow mustard, 1 1⁄2 teaspoons kosher salt, and 3⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. Pour over cabbage mixture and toss well. (Can be made up to 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate; before serving, bring to room temperature.) Makes 4 cups.
