Oven Cooked Brisket
Hey guys! I’m going to be very behind in my recipe sharing because for four days we’ve been visiting family in Nevada.
In fact, I didn’t cook during our getaway at all! Instead, I’ve been the recipient of good home-cooked meals, and boy did I enjoy some tasty grub!
We spent Father’s Day weekend at my in-laws house and every time we visit, my Father-in-law Bill makes the most magnificent meals including this mouthwatering Oven Cooked Barbecue Brisket!
The aroma was amazing while cooking and I knew this would be another tasty meal, so I asked if I could share it with all of you!
That means that I made everyone wait before serving up a plate of food so I could capture the meal in a couple of pictures. Brave, I know! The family got a peek of what Alan goes through as I swatted everyone away from picking pieces off the meat to taste!
Easy Family Brisket Recipe
Even though Bill cooks and preps the meals, my mother-in-law is the menu planner! On Karen’s kitchen counter, she has a recipe box packed to the brim with years worth of recipes.
Some are cut from the newspaper, but most are handwritten on those good old-fashioned recipe cards! Delicious food that has been tried and tested for many years!
This BBQ brisket recipe has been a favorite since 1981! Don’t you love handwritten recipes? I adore the special note that explains where the recipe came from.
Liquid Smoke Is A Key Ingredient In An Oven Cooked Brisket
It is important that this brisket bakes on low heat in the oven after an overnight seasoning with liquid smoke.
The slow process breaks down the tough meat yielding very tender slices of beef.
How To Oven Cook Brisket In The Oven
The key to cooking a tender brisket is to season the brisket a day in advance and cook the beef on low temperature for a minimum of 5 hours.
Go low and slow!
Whisk in a small bowl the dry rub ingredients; celery salt, garlic powder, and onion salt. Season both sides of the brisket.
Place meat in a foil-lined baking pan that is enough to fully enclose the meat. Those aluminum pans that can be purchased at a grocery store are perfect for brisket.
Once the brisket is seasoned, pour liquid smoke and Worcestershire sauce over the meat and as it drips to the side, lift it up so the liquid gets under the meat.
Cover the pan with aluminum foil crimping the foil tightly over the meat. Return to the refrigerator and marinate overnight.
Before cooking the brisket bring the meat to room temperature (30 minutes) and bake at 275°F for 5 hours.
After 5 hours remove foil and pour about 1 cup of barbecue sauce over the meat. Bake for an additional 60 minutes with the foil open.
Cool and slice into thin pieces.
This Oven Brisket Recipe can also be served as a sandwich with extra barbecue sauce!
If you are lucky enough to have leftover brisket, the best way to use it up is to slice or chop the leftovers and serve it on a roll or sandwich bread. Prepare the meat (slice or dice), place in a baking dish, and place the brisket in the oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes.
Add additional bbq sauce to the meat. For a homemade bbq sauce, give this thick and delicious low carb bbq sauce a try!
How to Store Brisket
