A recipe from Cactus Kosher Catering in Phoenix, AZ. I saw this in the paper today and it made my mouth water. Sunday's dinner for sure. *Please note - this is a 12 serving recipe so it does make a lot of sauce. I made the recipe as written, the sauce was delicious served over mashed potatoes and disappeared fast! You can easily halve the sauce ingredients for less servings.

Hi, Lorac. This was tasty brisket, tender with a good-flavored, bbq-y sauce. I felt when I read the recipe that there was a LOT of liquid for the quantity of meat listed. Brisket tends to skrink a great deal, and produces it's own juices. I used a 5 lb. brisket, 24 oz. chili sauce, 1 can onion soup. By that time my roaster was almost full, so I skipped the other can of french onion soup and added a can of beef consomme. I used the sliced onion and spices listed. I feel that the sauce recipe is about double the amount that you really need. I rated this three stars using the guide for the game. I would make this again, but I would make some changes. This was a great tasting recipe, and a good way to use brisket.

This was by far the best brisket I have ever made or eaten. The cooking time was well worth the wait. The meat was so tender you could cut it with a fork - flavor delicious! It's quickly become a family favorite - even my daughter-in-laws wanted the recipe!
