This Crowd-Pleasing Brisket doesn't require a ton of fuss. There's no seasoning rub or long hours in a smoker required. Plus, since it's made with our own easy throw-together sauce, you better believe the flavors are bold! This melt-in-your-mouth brisket recipe is the perfect meal for any holiday, get-together, or anytime you feel like treating yourself.  It's so easy and so flavorful, the crowd will think you worked all day!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup prepared mustard
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 (4- to 4-1/2-pound) brisket of beef

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar. Remove 1 cup of sauce to a small bowl and add water to it; mix well and pour into pan
  3. Place brisket in pan and pour the remaining sauce over meat. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. 
  4. Roast 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until meat is fork-tender. Remove from pan and let rest 5 minutes before carving across the grain. Serve topped with pan drippings.

I have made this recipe 8 or 9 times and never have any leftovers. I do it for potlucks and get rave reviews. I even had to get disposable storage containers for my guests to take home leftovers.

Family LOVED it. Just wished I had made a bigger one!

Made this for the holidays and it went so fast I barely got a taste. The only complaint was that the brisket I made was only 6 pounds so next time bigger. No leftovers either! Exceptional dish. I would recommend highly!

We made this 3 times this month - the first one was a trial run, 2nd for my family Christmas, and 3rd for my husband's family Christmas. Really good!e a comment...
