Add water until brisket is barely covered. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat and simmer for approx. 3 hours (for a 3-pound brisket) or longer. After approximately 3 hours of simmering; add potatoes, carrots, and onion. Cover and bring back to boil for 5 minutes. Then add cabbage, continue boiling and cover for an additional 5–7 minutes.
