Brisket With Gravy Recipe

Brisket With Gravy Recipe

Chili sauce, brown sugar and garlic season this robust beef brisket from Margaret Haugh Heilman of Houston, Texas. Topped with tender onions and served with a slightly sweet gravy, the entree tastes special enough for company.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 3 hours 50 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh beef brisket (about 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 can (12 ounces) beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  • 1. Place beef in a roasting pan. Sprinkle with pepper and top with onion. Combine the beer, chili sauce, brown sugar and garlic; stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over meat.
  • 2. Cover and bake at 325° for 3-1/2 hours. Uncover; bake 15-30 minutes longer or until onions are lightly browned and meat is tender. Remove meat and onions to a serving platter and keep warm.
  • 3. Pour drippings and loosened browned bits into a saucepan. Skim fat. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir into pan drippings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice meat thinly across the grain. Serve with gravy. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: This is a fresh beef brisket, not corned beef.
