Shamelessly adopted and adapted from a recipe given to me by Lea Bruce.
- 1 piece beef brisket, large enough to fit into your crock pot
- 1⁄3 cup mustard (best is Dijon or Honey Mustard)
- 1⁄3 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons onion soup mix
- 1 1⁄2 cups Coca-Cola
- fresh ground pepper
- Mix all ingredients except for the brisket.
- Place the brisket into the crock pot and pour the cola mixture over the meat.
- Cook on high for 8 hours or overnight on low.
- Slice and serve.
This recipe is so simple and so tasty that I make it too often and eat too much when I do. I have made this several times and it is perfect every time.
I decided to try this recipe after Chia bragged about how delicious it was the day yall were discussing brisket in a "thread" and I told yall how hungry you were making me. I decided to try this in the oven since it was my day off and very cold outside. I used a 6 lb., market trimmed brisket and poked holes all in it. I doubled your sauce ingredients (used Honey Mustard, BTW) and poured it all over the meat, poking more holes so the seasoning would get down in the meat really well. Wrapped the brisket in foil and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 4 hours. When it was done, I removed the brisket and let it cool about an hour. Sliced it about 1/4-inch thick , with my electric knife, and layed the slices back down in the sauce. Then reheated it in the oven for a few minutes. WHOA MOMMA!!! DELICIOUS!! Thanks, Mirjam, for the recipe and thanks, Chia, for the recommendation!!
This was my first try at brisket, and I'm so happy I chose your recipe! Everyone loved it. I didn't have onion soup mix, so used a little onion powder and beef boullion instead. I hope that didn't make too big a difference but it was GREAT!!!
