My Simple Brisket Recipe

September 23, 2019

I am almost embarassed to share this super simple brisket recipe that honestly sounds more like a four-year-old's sauce concoction, but hey, it's good and I have seen real, fancy cooks actually use similar sauces, so, hey. Here it is!

I start by searing the brisket that is at room temperature and rubbed with sea salt and freshly ground pepper for 1-2 minutes on each side in a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Then, add the sauce below to the pan and stir. Place the meat, sauce, and a cup of water into a large, lidded crock. You can add veggies in at this point - carrots, onions, potatoes, whatever strikes your fancy or needs to be used up. Cook at 250 degress for 3-4 hours, or until desired doneness (check temperature). 


The Sauce

You can add other sauces or spices to this, or swap these out. What I love about this is that I don't need anything special on hand, and yet, it turns out tasty.

- 2 teaspoons ketchup (or tomato paste

- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

- 1 teaspoon molasses (honey, maple syrup, or sugar also works)

- 1 teaspoon mustard

- 2 teaspoons steak sauce

- 1 teaspoon garlic powder

- 1 teaspoon paprika

- a dash of nutmeg

- 1 teaspoon cumin

- 1/2 teaspoon each of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
