Great recipe for when you don't have access to a grill! My Mom sent me this recipe in college over 30 years ago and I don't know the source. The last hour of cooking I like to add potatoes, carrots, onions, and a little parsley to bottom of pan. (Time does not include time to marinate.) Enjoy!
- 1 tablespoon garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons celery seeds
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon Accent seasoning (or any meat tenderizer)
- 1 tablespoon seasoning salt (like Lawry's)
- 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 (4 -6 lb) beef brisket (with 1-inch fat on top and good marbling)
- Mix all ingredients in a small bowl (except brisket).
- Line a baking pan with enough foil to seal over the meat.
- Brush half of mixture on bottom of foil. Then, place brisket in the pan, fatty side up. Brush the remaining mixture on top of brisket. Cover and seal well.
- Marinate overnight in refrigerator.
- Take out of fridge about 1/2 hour before cooking.
- Bake at 300F for 3-1/2 hours or until tender.
- Take from oven and allow to rest 15 minutes before cutting.
- Scrape marinade off of meat and slice across the grain.
- Note 1: This recipe is good for 4-6 lbs. of brisket. If you are cooking a larger size, adjust amount of marinade accordingly, marinate longer-at least 24 hours, and adjust cooking time. Allow approximately 1/2 hour cooking per 1 lb. at 300°F.
- Note 2: The pan drippings make a wonderful sauce but you will need to skim the fat and/or strain with cheesecloth. Add beef broth and thicken with cornstarch, if needed. Or, just use your favorite barbecue sauce.
