Preheat oven to gas 4, 180˚C, fan 160˚C.

Season the beef with salt and pepper. In a large flameproof casserole dish, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. Add the beef brisket, turning gradually until browned all over.

Nestle the cabbage wedges around the beef. Into the stock, stir the redcurrant sauce, herbs and crushed peppercorns. Pour over the beef with the red wine. Cover with a lid or a piece of foil and transfer to the oven for 2 hours.

Add the apple segments and red onion and return to the oven uncovered for 1 hour.

Slice the beef and serve with mashed potato, the cabbage wedges and a spoonful of the apple and onion mix.
