The most amazing "no hassle" beef recipe I know. My mom-in-law gave it to me (one of my hubb'y favorites)and I love making it for crowds of people. Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix liquids and pour over brisket.
  2. Refrigerate for 24 hours. (This step is not mandatory since the meat cooks in the juices for so long).
  3. Bake in covered dish (can use foil) or roasting pan for 4-5 hours at 300 degrees.
  4. When done cooking, the meat should be very tender. Cut it into strips and return it to the pan with the marinade for serving.

We love the flavor the liquid smoke gave the brisket! I didn't have liquid garlic but chopped two cloves of garlic. Wonder flavor. Thank you so much Bianca, for sharing this. :-)
