This is a great recipe for a crowd!
1 (5-pound) brisket
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chili sauce
1 cup water
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 (10-ounce) bottle of beer
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Wash and dry the brisket, cutting away most of visible fat.
Sprinkle the brisket with salt, pepper and paprika.
Place the brisket, fat side up, in a heavy baking pan. Surround with the onions, celery and garlic.
Pour chili sauce on top of the brisket.
Slowly pour the water into the pan around the brisket. Sprinkle with the parsley.
Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour. Remove from oven and pour the beer over the brisket.
Do this slowly so it doesn’t wash off the chili sauce.
Cover the brisket and cook 3 hours longer or until tender.
Cool to room temperature. Place in refrigerator.
Remove any accumulated fat from the top.
Slice and reheat in the sauce.
Garnish with a sprinkling of fresh minced parsley.
Yield: 10 servings.
This recipe is from That’s My Home Free Recipes – Cattleman’s Barbecue Sauce
We served ours after baking it for 5 hours without refrigerating it. We cut it across the grain and shred it before serving also. We served it along with Cattleman's BBQ Sauce.
We also provided Potato Rolls for anyone who wanted to make it into a BBQ Sandwich. Yummy!
This is my big turkey roaster I cooked 2 – 5# briskets in here and all the extras fit in around them well for the baking time.
So the next party you have invite a crowd and let them bring the extras to go with the brisket. It will make for an easy breezy fun party for the hostess and guests!
