Ever since a former neighbor shared this recipe with me, it has been a family favorite. Since it makes a lot, it’s good for a company dinner or buffet. The meat gets nice and tender from baking slowly for several hours. —Lorraine Hodge, McLean, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh beef brisket (5 pounds)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke, optional

  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

Place brisket on a large sheet of heavy-duty foil; seal tightly. Place in a greased shallow roasting pan. Bake at 325° for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.
Carefully open foil to allow steam to escape. Remove brisket from foil; let stand for 20 minutes. Thinly slice meat across the grain. Place in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spoon sauce over meat. Cover and bake for 1 hour or until heated through. Yield: 12 servings.
