Texas Brisket

Recipe by  

"This is a really easy BBQ brisket recipe that I got from Texas. There are only 3 ingredients besides the brisket, and it turns out really tender. Better with a brisket that is not too closely trimmed."

Directions

  1. Line a shallow roasting pan with aluminum foil. Place the brisket on the foil. Stir together the steak sauce, liquid smoke, and ketchup. Pour half of the mixture over the brisket, then turn the meat over, and pour sauce over the other side. Wrap tightly in a double layer of aluminum foil. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Let the roast stand at room temperature while the oven preheats to take off some of the chill.
  3. Bake for 6 or 7 hours in the preheated oven. You can leave it in even longer if you turn the oven down to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Remove brisket from the oven, and slice across the grain. Return to the roasting pan, and serve with sauce.

FYI to those of you that didn't already know this make sure the fat side of the Brisket is up when cooking helps keep it nice and tender.

This is really bad. Had to throw it all out.

My whole family really enjoyed this one. Next time I will cut the cooking time down about an hour and a half to two hours though. Although it a little too done for our taste, we still liked it. My husband said it was actually beter the next day as a sandwich. I shreaded some of the meat and set it to work with him. I also used A-1, perhaps next time I will try a different steak sauce too. All in all though it was a good dinner.

This was a really easy recipe. I used Stubb's sauces(made in Austin, Tx) and my husband absolutely loved it! He keeps asking me when we are going to have that brisket again.

Really good recipe. I tried A1 sauce with it (along with a drop or two of beer) and it worked well.

Really good, it might be a good idea to get creative with the sauce.. depending on what you like. This one was good though

Excellant-easy recipe and satisfied 2 transplanted Texans. I marinated for 18 hours, cooked for 6 hours, fall off the bone tender. But, the liquid smoke does create a strong smell. The house smelled like a Texas BBQ all day, and it became quite acrid. Maybe cooking in in spring, summer, fall when the windows can be with open is a good idea. Despite that I would use the recipe again-even in winter
