Oven Baked Beef Brisket

This is the first time I am doing the brisket in the oven. I will usually cook it in a slow cooker but this time I am trying something new. A lot of people will smoke their brisket but I have no clue how to do that so the easiest way for me is to use the oven. Just remember not to trim too much of the fats away as the fats will keep the meat moist. Actually I trimmed off all the fats so the meat was a bit dry. For the seasoning you can used any seasoning as you like and adjust according to your taste. This is how I do the meat.

Ingredients :

2-3 pound of brisket
2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of salt
some black pepper
2 onions - sliced
3 cloves of garlic - roughly chopped
heavy duty aluminium foil
some BBQ sauce

1) Wash, clean and trim some of the fats from the brisket. Pat dry.
2) Lay a large piece of aluminium foil on a baking sheet. Put the meat on top of the foil and rub it with salt, pepper, paprika and Worcestershire sauce. Sprinkle the onions and garlic on top of the meat. Seal up the foil and wrap it again with another piece of foil.
3) Let it marinate for an hour and then pre-heat the oven to 275 degree F and slow cook it for at least 4 hours. Check the tenderness and if its not tender enough you might need to bake for another half an hour.
4) Once the meat is done remove from oven, unwrap the foil and let the meat rest for 20 minutes before slicing.
5) Slice the meat against the grain and slather it with BBQ sauce before serving.

Note : For the leftover meat you can make it into chopped BBQ sandwich.

Gert, it looks delicious! One house is on sale near my house. Perhaps you should move there and I can visit you and makan your food everyday. :-)

Gert,
it looks so good and yummy! One thing I hate about cooking brisket is slicing it. It's hot and someone can't wait to eat it and I have to slice it very very fast. :) Can't really slice it as thin as yours. hahaha

Pinky, thank you.

Cat, the next time try out the brisket. I am sure your family will like it.

Zue, your place is too far away from Carlos office :)

Yatie, the next time let your meat rest for a while as it will be easier for you to slice :)

Parker, thank you.

Looks delicious! Can I ask... when you make it in the slow cooker, do you use the same ingredients? And also, how long does it go in the slow cooker for?

Thanks! Love your site :)
