jewish grandmother brisket #2


another recipe for a braised jewish grandmother style of brisket. takes longer than my other recipe but is delicious

4 Lb market trimmed brisket
12 oz bottle chili sauce (I use heinz)
2 packages dry onion soup
1 1/2 cup coca cola (not diet)

preheat the oven to 500
in a medium bow mix the chili sauce and the onion soup
place the brisket in a large dutch oven or a roasting pan
cook 15 minutes at 500
remove from the oven and lower the temperature to 250
pour the chili sauce mixture over the brisket spreading it out to cover
slowly pour the coca cola over the brisket
cover tightly and cook at 250 for about 4 hours or so .flip the brisket after about 1.2 way thru I use about an hour a pound as a guide
remove when a meat thermometer reads 190
let rest for 20 minutes before slicing across the grain into 1/2 slices

this recipe can be made the day before
if done that way after its done cooking place in the fridge before slicing with the juice>
about an our before you ready to serve it preheat the oven to 325
remove the brisket from the fat juice
skim the fat off the juice
slice the brisket across the grain
return to a roasting pan with the juice
cover tightly and cook 1 hour or so to reheat

I assume 1/2-3/4 lb per person a 4 lb brisket will serve 6-8
