There's nothing like seeing my husband's eyes light up when he comes through the door and sees I've prepared this meal for him. The recipe is tried and true.


  • 1 fresh beef brisket (1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons Creole or Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Liquid Smoke, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  1. Place meat, fat side up, in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. In a bowl, combine the Creole seasoning, garlic salt, lemon-pepper and parsley. Rub over meat. Add bay leaf. Cover and bake at 350° for about 2-1/2 hours or until meat is just tender. Drain and discard juices. Discard bay leaf.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the tomato sauce, sugar, brown sugar, liquid smoke if desired and hot pepper sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Pour over meat. Cover and bake 30 minutes longer or until the meat is tender and sauce is heated through.
