Mix together five-spice powder, brown sugar, garlic powder, coriander, and salt and dry rub on all sides of the brisket, then let sit for 10 minutes.
Roast uncovered in an oven-safe pan with light oil for 1 hour at 350°.
Remove the brisket from the pan. Add bruised garlic, sliced onion and ginger, and peppercorns to remaining oil in the pan to create a surface for the brisket.
Return brisket to the pan with the other side facing up. Coat the top of the brisket with hoisin sauce and pour beef stock around the brisket, directly onto the bed of aromatics.
Cover and bake for 90 minutes at 300°, then let cool for 20 minutes.
Strain remaining liquid in the pan to serve as dipping sauce.
