  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Season the brisket on all sides with salt and pepper, and place in a glass baking dish. Cover with a layer of sliced onions. In a medium bowl, mix together the beer, chili sauce, and brown sugar. Pour over the roast. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 3 hours in the preheated oven. Remove the aluminum foil, and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Let the brisket rest and cool slightly before slicing and returning to the dish. Reheat in the oven with the sauce spooned over the sliced meat.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This was my first time ever cooking brisket. I made this last night and this was easy pretty quick and YUMMY. I only used 3/4 the bottle of chilie sauce and 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar. I us...

Following previous reviews about the recipe being too sweet, I marinated the meat over night in a mixture of 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup oil, 2 teaspoons of salt and 6 cloves of garlic. Very Good!
