This is one of those old standby simple-to-prepare recipes you can make for years and continually go back to.  Pop the brisket in the oven, forget about the brisket, and the end result is this succulent tender brisket, and leftovers make incredible sandwiches.  This recipe can be made in the crock pot.


Makes 12 - 14 servings


5 - 6 lbs very lean brisket, trimmed of excess fat

Garlic powder

1 cup light brown sugar

1 cup water

1 envelope dry onion soup mix

1 cup ketchup


1. Preheat oven to 325° F.  Season brisket heavily with garlic powder. 

2. In small bowl, mix together brown sugar, water, onion soup mix, and ketchup.  Pour over brisket in large baking pan or roaster.

3. Cook, covered 4 1/2 hours to 5 hours, or until meat is fork tender.  To serve, slice against the grain, serve with sauce.
