My first ever Brisket was delicious thanks to the Pioneer Woman! It was my first time tasting and making a brisket and it was sooo good! She calls it "Tangy Tomato Brisket" and it was so juicy and tender! It's a pretty simple recipe too as long as you have patience! I hope you enjoy!

  • 5-8 pounds beef brisket ( I used 9 pounds because they were out of the smaller sizes,you can ask the butcher to trim the fat or trim it yourself)
  • 1 20-24 ounce bottle of ketchup 
  • 1 package of dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup water
  • Any spices you'd like, but it is wonderful without any!
  • In a medium bowl mix together the ketchup and onion mix 
  • Mix in the water and other spices and set aside
  • Now you can trim any excess fat and put the brisket in a large pan, I used a heavy duty aluminum pan as directed by the pioneer woman 
  • Then pour the mixture onto the beef and make sure every part, front and bottom side to side, has been covered!
  • TIGHTLY wrap the top of the pan with aluminum foil and refrigerate over night
  • The next day preheat your oven to 275 degrees
  • Then, with the aluminum foil still tightly on, put the brisket in the oven!!
  • At the half way point of the cooking, I flipped the beef over but that is totally optional
  • I cooked mine for 9 hours, but I would do 1 hour for every pound

  • To check if it is done, put two forks in the middle and it should easily spread apart (fork tender)
  • Slice then keep warm or serve!!!

This goes great on hamburger buns! And if you are in a hurry you don't have to marinate it overnight, it just allows for more time for the flavor to set in.
