Weekend Recipes: Oven Roasted Brisket


You like brisket? This is definitely for you! Probably not the healthiest recipe, but it will definitely hit your taste buds.

What You Need

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • Sriracha Sauce
  • Spicy BBQ Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 bay leaf, crushed
  • 4 pounds beef brisket, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock

How To Make It

Preheat your oven at 350 degrees. Make a dry rub by combining chili powder, garlic and onion powders, black pepper, basil, dry mustard, Cajun seasoning, and bay leaf. Cover brisket with extra virgin olive oil. Season the raw brisket on both sides with the rub. Place in a roasting pan and roast, uncovered, for 1 hour. Add chicken stock and water to have around 1/2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan. After the hour lower oven to 300 degrees, cover pan and continue cooking for 3 hours, or until fork-tender (may take a little bit longer than the additional three hours). While cooking be sure to stir together a mixture of Sriracha Sauce and Spicy BBQ Sauce. After the brisket is complete top this sauce over the meat.

After finished cooking, slice the brisket and top with juices from the pan. This recipe will yield around 10 servings and takes well over 4 hours to prep, cook, and carve for serving.
