Marinated Beef Brisket
"This tender, tasty brisket cooks a long time, but it's so easy to prepare," confirms Janet Parham, Cibolo, Texas. "Just marinate the meat overnight in an oven bag, then add the sauce and roast with no more fuss!"
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 2-1/2 hours
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 large oven roasting bag
- 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

- 1 fresh beef brisket (about 4 pounds)
- 1 cup ketchup
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar

- Shake flour in the oven bag; place in ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Combine the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, onion salt, pepper and liquid smoke if desired; rub over both sides of brisket. Place in the oven bag. Close with tie and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice, mustard and hot pepper sauce; spread over brisket.
