Nana Lara's Brisket Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
I prepared it as instructed except for the fact that I used the ancho chili powder I had since I did not have any regular chili powder. It was a huge hit. My wife even high fived me after I made it.

BRISKET SHOWDOWN! Nana Lara's Brisket vs. Wine-Braised Beef Brisket (both 5 star ratings but which did we like better?) Used the cooking method from this recipe for both briskets. Both were tender. Flavor wise - Nana Lara's is the winner in our family. The rub makes a huge difference which encrusts the brisket. The soy/pineapple combo brings a yummy flavor.

Didn't have meat tenderizer, instead added 1 Tbsp McCormick Season-All & 1 Tbsp Goya Adobo; increased brown sugar (light) to 1-1/2 Tbsp - all on a 5# fresh brisket. Also- crushed pineapple used was a 20 oz. can. After the 1 hr @ 350, I reduced heat to 275 for 3-1/2 hrs. OMG - sooooo tender & delicious.!!

This was amazing. Flavor was incredible. Simple and delicious. Will maybe try in a crock pot to save on time.

I found this recipe when searching for something to do with a brisket I had. My family loved!!! We now make it for every special occasion and big get together. Would definitely say give it a try. My dad even likes it and he doesn't care for brisket.

Excellent flavor! I only had a 1.5 lb brisket so I quartered the recipe (and also omitted the pineapple). But I used the baking directions from the "Easy Bake Brisket" recipe because it seemed easier. I would highly recommend this ingredient combination though!

Will make again. From my husband, "mommy's brisket is good!" It was delicious - even without the pinneaples (I didn't have any on hand).
