3 - 4 pound brisket of beef (2nd cut is fine)
1 cups barbecue sauce
OR 1 cups catsup + 2 T brown sugar + 1 pkg. onion soup mix
garlic powder
heavy duty aluminum foil


Pre-heat oven to 350
Trim most of the fat from both sides of the brisket. Wash and pat dry. Place brisket on two pieces of heavy duty foil arranged crosswise. (Sometimes we use more foil.) Sprinkle garlic powder on both sides of meat. Spread barbecue sauce or catsup mixture evenly on both sides of the meat. Wrap the meat with the foil tightly so that no air can get in. Place the package on the middle rack of a preheated 350 oven. Cook for approximately one hour per pound.

3lb. brisket - usually 3 hours
4lb. brisket - usually 4 hours
5lb. brisket - usually 4 hours

Remove carefully from foil. Save juice for gravy. Allow to sit until warm, then slice. Wonderful when cooked one day and served the next. Warm up sliced brisket in 300 oven for hour. Serve with kasha for an outstanding Jewish meal!
