the tastiest brisket ever..this is a Food Network recipe by Tom Perini, I use a pot roast rather than a brisket...much tastier.


  1. preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Make a dry rub by combining all dry ingredients.
  3. season the raw brisket on all sides with the rub.
  4. place in a roasting pan and roast uncovered for 1 hour.
  5. add beef stock and enough water to yield about 1/2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan.
  6. lower oven to 300 degrees F, cover pan tightly and continue to cook until fork tender, about 3 hours.
  7. trim the fat and slice meat thinly across the grain. top with juice from the pan.

This is different from the usual brisket I make and we really enjoyed it. I did however tweek the recipe a bit. I omitted the salt, instead of the beef stock I used 1 1/2 cup water 2 pkg. boullion and 1/2 cup ketchup. I didn't have onion powder so I used one large chopped onion.

I have used this recipe twice now and the whole family LOVES it! It is truly the best brisket anywhere! I buy trimmed brisket and it is unbeatable!
