Baked brisket is one of my family’s favorite treats. This recipe is one that anyone can impress your friends and family with at the next big dinner your host.
This is a baked brisket, not smoked, but loaded with flavor!
5 lb brisket
1 cup ketcup
1 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. each of garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and celery seed
1 tsp. salt
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and rub the mixture over the entire brisket. Be sure to coat the brisket well. Wrap the brisket in foil and leave in refrigerator overnight.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Bring meat to room temperature before cooking. Ensure the foil is sealed and place the brisket in a baking pan. Bake for 3-4 hours or until done. Do not check the brisket for at least 3 hours. It will be done when the entire house smells like brisket and is fork tender.
Use the drippings as a serving sauce!
