Because brisket was often on sale, it became a frequent dish on the dinner table. I used to boil the brisket to make it more tender, but then it had a very bland taste. A good friend gave me this recipe, and I haven't boiled a brisket since. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.

"For a bit of advice inject the brisket with some of the marinade it makes the brisket more tender and enhances the flavor."
