19 Aug Spicy Beef Brisket

Make sandwiches by adding your favorite BBQ sauce, thinly sliced onions or pickles, and a freshly baked bun.


  • 2 T salt
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 1 T onion powder
  • 1 T ground black pepper
  • 1 T sugar
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 bay leaf, crushed
  • 4 lbs beef brisket, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock


1.  Preheat the oven to 350.

2.  Make a dry rub by combining salt, garlic and onion powders, black pepper, sugar, dry mustard, and bay leaf.

3.  Season the raw brisket on both sides with the rub. Place in a roasting pan and roast, uncovered, for 1 hour.

4.  Add beef stock and enough water to yield about 1/2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan. Lower oven to 300, cover pan tightly and continue cooking for 3 hours, or until fork-tender.

5.  Trim the fat and chop. Top with juice from the pan or make sandwiches with your favorite sauce and toppings.
