"Easy and festive brisket, straight from my grandma in Newfoundland. This recipe is goof-proof and very tasty. Really good with a glass of Lambrusco, a sparkling red wine, or with ale."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

ground black pepper
1 (6 pound)
1 (8 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, drained
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).
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!
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.
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.
Definitely deserves the 5 star rating! So juicy, so tender, so easy and loaded with flavor. I followed the recipe exactly, omitting the pineapple because I didn't have any on hand but it didn't hinder the flavor at all. I will make this again and again.
I don't think I'll ever cook brisket another way. This was absolutely amazing. #noleftovers
