Beef Brisket with Mop Sauce
This tender brisket roasts in a sauce that adds great flavor. When one of our sons lived in the South, I learned that "mop sauce" is traditionally prepared for Texas ranch-style barbecues in batches so large it is brushed on the meat with a mop! You won't need that much for my recipe, but will get the big-time taste.
