How to Make Oven Brisket
Are you craving a tender, juicy brisket but don’t own a grill or a smoker? Don’t fret, I have just the recipe for you! This recipe’s is technically from my significant other’s grandmother, but over the last year or so I’ve added my own flair to this incredible oven brisket.
- Brisket, duh. This recipe tends to turn out better with corned-beef brisket, but a normal beef brisket will work just fine.
- eight to twelve ounces of ketchup
- Worcestershire sauce (to your taste)
- Soy Sauce (to your taste)
- One Container Beef Broth
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Liquid Smoke or Smokey Montreal Steak Seasoning
- Tin Foil
- A Roasting Pan, preferably four to five inches deep (for the oven)
- A Mixing Bowl
- A Basting Brush
Oven Brisket Steps
- 1 – Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
- 2 – Open your brisket and place in whatever your roasting pan.
- 3 – Season both sides of the brisket with a mixture of oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder. No need to rub the seasoning into the meat, but I always try to!
- 4 – Place the roasting pan into the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes (don’t forget to set a timer here!).
- 5 – While the brisket is cooking, mix the ketchup, a splash of Worcestershire, and two splashes soy sauce in your mixing bowl. Remember, this is all to your tasting! Feel free to adjust these amounts here.
- 6 – Once 45 minutes have passed, remove the brisket from the oven and carefully place on your counter.
- 7 – Pour some beef broth into the roasting pan. This will create steam and is crucial to creating that tender brisket your heart is patiently waiting for.
- 8 – With your basting brush, paint the complete top of the brisket with the ketchup concoction from step 5.
- 9 – Pour liquid smoke or Smokey seasoning into the beef broth. If you have the seasoning, you could simply season the meat, but I prefer to allow it to smoke with the broth rather than actually adding more seasoning to the meat.
- 10 – Cover the pan with tin foil two to three times to ensure optimal levels of steam/moisture remain within.
- 11 – Poke a few small holes into the four corners of the tin foil for safety.
- 12 – Place the roasting pan back in oven for four to five more hours. Be sure to check periodically and add more beef broth if it evaporates.
- 13 – Remove from oven, cut against the grain, and enjoy!
Voila, a masterfully crafted brisket straight from the comfort of your own home’s oven. To really bring out the flavors from this brisket, pair with some mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, or green beans. It also pairs quite nice with dressing (or stuffing) around the holidays.
