This brisket marinates for 4 to 6 hours, then cooks slowly for about 3 hours, so plan ahead. Start off with a gorgeous ruby red borscht, and serve brisket with roasted potatoes and maybe some honey-sweetened carrot tzimmes too!
- 6 to 7 lb. beef brisket
- 3/4 tablespoon hickory Liquid Smoke
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
- freshly ground black pepper - lots!
Combine Liquid Smoke, Worcestershire sauce, the salts and black pepper in a 1 or 2 gallon resealable plastic bag. Add the brisket and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.
I like to remove the meat from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking so it is not ice-cold when it is placed in the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176 degrees Celsius). Drain brisket slightly and place in a baking dish; cover tightly with aluminum foil and cook in the 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (149 degrees Celsius) and continue to cook at least 2-1/2 more hours, or until brisket is tender and done. Remove from oven, uncover and let meat rest for about 10 or 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
