Annie's Sweet and Sour Baked Brisket

"Another great brisket recipe from my mother. Not only is it simple as can be, but clean up is a breeze since the brisket is cooked in foil."

Ready In:
3hrs 5mins




  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Place brisket on a large piece of foil in a baking dish. Pour other ingredients over it. Seal foil.
  • Bake at 325°F for 3 - 3/12 hours until meat is tender.
  • Slice against the grain.
  • NOTE: Just made a wonderful discovery! I had some leftovers that I had frozen a while ago. I thawed the leftovers out, shopped it very fine, and put it in a pot with about 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce (any kind you like.) And voila! BBQ brisket sandwiches. The kids LOVED them.

  1. I´ve been making this one for the past years too. Absolutely easy, no fuss, no mess and very delicious. Only for this recipe I have onion soup mix in the house. Sometimes I add a can of beer or two cups of red wine to the sauce - which is equally delicious.
  2. This is delicious. I don't usually buy prepared soup mixes, but I will buy some more onion soup mix just to be able to make this brisket. Thanks, SheCooksToConquer! Made for PAC Fall 2007.


<img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <br> <br>Been cooking all my life. Both my parents were excellent cooks, my mother made a a wide range of things, my father was a gourmet Chinese chef long before it became stylish to cook Chinese. One of my earliest memories of cooking is helping my dad make egg rolls from scratch. I make a mean Peking Duck, too. <br>Got a husband, two kids, two dogs, two cats. We used to have two birds, but we've recently moved and didn't think they'd survive the trip. <br>I don't have a favorite cookbook, but I go through phases. I guess Joy of Cooking is the best for basic everything, and I'm very partial to The Gefilte Variations. Not only are the recipes fairly yummy, but the stories she tells are really delightful. <br><img src=> <br> <br>
