Spicy Beef Brisket Recipe

Spicy Beef Brisket Recipe

This fork-tender brisket is just as good when cooked a day ahead, refrigerated and reheated. I like to serve it with mashed potatoes, rice or noodles to take advantage of the flavorful sauce. -Wendy Kiehn Sebring, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 2-1/2 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh beef brisket (3 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle brisket with seasoned salt and pepper. In a Dutch oven, brown meat in oil on both sides. Remove and keep warm. In the same pan, saute onions and garlic until tender. Return brisket to pan.
  • 2. Combine broth, chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, chili powder and bay leaves; pour over meat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until meat is tender.
  • 3. Remove brisket to a serving platter. Skim fat from cooking juices; discard bay leaves. Combine flour and cold water until smooth; stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Thinly slice meat across the grain; serve with sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: This is a fresh beef brisket, not corned beef.
