A Great Brisket (Not Smoked)

READY IN: 5hrs 5mins
Recipe by riffraff

This a good brisket to make if you don't have the time or don't want to mess with the smoker. You can put it in the oven in the morning and come home from church and supper is just about ready.

riffraff, your recipe was a hit at a large party of 250 people using 75 lbs of whole brisket and this recipe. Added advise, esp. with this size, 30 -40 % cooks away if using a whole brisket. May receive a slight discount from butcher for buying a whole case/box. Allow time for butcher to order the meat...our case 3 days. Allow 2 - 3 hours for cooling before "pulling" brisket. If brisket is large..we had a "Big Bertha", reinforce aluminum pan and line bottom of oven for easy clean up. Also, hate to admit it..I didn't know what "consomme" was. So I hope it translates beef broth. This was a huge hit at our party! Nobody knew it was in the oven! We will use this again and again! Thanks. Nashville, TN
