Oven Brisket Recipe

When time is scarce, this oven brisket recipe comes in handy. Thanks to Mom, I learned a lot about cooking, and this is one of my favorite recipes of hers. Simple, yes, but we all enjoyed the results a whole lot.

Just a few items are required for this oven brisket recipe. Mom always used the flat cut from the brisket. The size and shape fit perfectly in her Pyrex baking dish, which she always used when she made this for us.

Other than the brisket, salt, pepper, barbecue sauce (we liked KC Masterpiece), and aluminum foil is all that's needed for the cooking. And for the sandwiches, more bbq sauce, Franks Red Hot Louisiana Hot Sauce, dill pickle slices and white bread. With Kitty Clover potato chips and iced tea to drink, we had a filling and tasty evening meal.

How To Oven Bake Beef Brisket

Trim off any excess fat. Place the brisket in a baking pan, about 2 to 2-1/2 inches deep. Sprinkle on salt and pepper and cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Place into a 325 degree oven and bake for 1-1/2 hours.

Remove from the oven, carefully remove the foil (watch out for the burst of hot steam), and let the brisket cool until it can be handled. At that point, place the brisket on a cutting board and slice into 1/4 inch thick slices.

Put the sliced brisket back into the baking dish and douse with a good half-cup of barbecue sauce...more if you like it saucey. Replace the foil and bake it again in the oven set at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for another 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until the meat is fall apart tender.

Remove the oven barbecued brisket from the stove and allow it to cool slightly before serving it with the sandwich fixin's. This makes great tasting brisket sandwiches. And if there are leftovers, you'll have a sack lunch that others will be jealous of.
