Add vegetable oil to a pot, and set your stove to high heat. Add the cubed brisket, and let it sear so that all sides are equally brown. Add all the additional ingredients, except the parsley, to the pot, and lower the heat until the liquids begin to simmer. Cook, partially covered, for 2 to 2.5 hours, until the meat is tender.
Once complete, serve by itself, or over a bed of pasta. Add chopped parsley for a bright touch.
