DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 450; you'll also need a roasting pan with a lid large enough to hold the brisket easily with a little space (but not too much) around it.
  • Aluminum foil can be used to cover the pan if necessary.
  • Put the meat in the roasting pan, and sear uncovered for 15 minutes.
  • While the meat is searing, combine the cranberry sauce, onion soup mix and ketchup in a bowl; mix well.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and lower the heat to 350.
  • Pour the cranberry sauce mixture over the brisket, then pour enough ginger ale into the pan so it will cover the meat about half way up (you don't want it completely covered).
  • Bake, covered, for 2 1/2 hours, occasionally spooning some of the sauce over the meat if desired.
  • Slice the brisket on the diagonal, against the grain.
  • You can return the slices to the sauce to reheat, if desired.
  • NOTE: The amount of ginger ale you need will depend on the size of the brisket and your pan, but I've found usually 1-2 cans (1 1/2 to 3 cups) usually will do it.
