Step 1Heat oil in stockpot over medium heat until hot. Place beef brisket in stockpot; brown evenly. Remove brisket; season with salt and black pepper.
Step 2Add onion and garlic to stockpot; cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until onion is crisp-tender. Return brisket, fat side up, to stockpot. Add beer, chiles, broth and red pepper as desired; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 hours or until brisket is fork-tender.
Step 3Remove brisket. Skim fat from cooking liquid; keep cooking liquid warm. Trim fat from brisket. Cut into 4 to 6 pieces; shred with 2 forks. Stir shredded beef into reserved liquid.
Step 4Serve beef mixture in rolls topped with giardiniera, cheese and mayonnaise, if desired.
Roasted Red Pepper Mayonnaise: Place 1/2 cup jarred chopped roasted red pepper, 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1 clove chopped garlic in food processor container. Cover; process until smooth. Yield: about 2/3 cup.
