Clifton’s Favorite Brisket

This brisket has always been a favorite! I even have one grandson who had never eaten brisket ask for seconds and even makes requests. I make this brisket at least three times a year. Rosh Hashanah, Passover, and Hanukkah. Clifton makes a pretty great brisket!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 Brisket - See recipe notes below, for size. Ask the butcher what cut will be most tender
  • 1 bottle of Chile Sauce (I use Heinz)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 envelope of onion soup mix
  • 1 bottle of beer, room temperature

Recipe Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-375°.
  2. Rub onion soup into the brisket.
  3. Lay brisket in the pan, fat side up.
  4. Spread chile sauce over the brisket.
  5. Sprinkle brown sugar on top.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour.
  7. Remove from the oven and pour beer into the pan.
  8. Recover and bake about another 2 hours, until very tender.
  9. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  1. 1/2 pound of cooked brisket per person is the standard response. However, you might need as little as 1/4 pound or as much as 3/4 pound, depending on the circumstances. One pound of raw brisket should yield about 1/2 pound of cooked meat.
