Zippy Barbecued Beef Brisket Recipe

This is an authentic Texas dish from a good friend. The tangy sauce not only helps tenderize the meat but also provides fantastic flavor.—Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + marinating Bake: 3 hours + standing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Dash pepper
  • MARINADE:
  • 2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke, optional
  • 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon each salt, garlic salt and onion salt
  • 1 fresh beef brisket (about 5 pounds)

Directions

  • 1. For barbecue sauce, in a large saucepan, combine the first 13 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Strain sauce, discarding bay leaves and vegetable pulp; set aside.
  • 2. For marinade, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine the Liquid Smoke if desired, teriyaki sauce, celery seed, pepper, salts and 1 cup reserved barbecue sauce. Add the brisket. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining barbecue sauce.
  • 3. Drain and discard marinade. Place brisket on a large sheet of heavy-duty foil; seal tightly. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 3-4 hours or until meat is tender.
  • 4. Remove brisket to a serving platter; let stand for 15 minutes. Reheat reserved sauce. Thinly slice meat across the grain. Serve with sauce. Yield: 10 servings.
Editor's Note: This is a fresh beef brisket, not corned beef.
