A few days ago, I blogged about our trip to Louisiana in Camo & Cajun Country. We had a fabulous time, and some pretty good eats as well. One of the highlights was the night our hostess prepared her special family recipe brisket. THE most tender and flavorful meat I have ever eaten! And, as befitting a Louisianan, a little on the spicy side! And sooooo yummy!
This is her delicious recipe and how I prepared it:
Ms. Vickie’s Brisket
- 1 8-12 lb. Brisket
- 2 c. ketchup
- ½ c. mustard
- 1 bottle liquid smoke
- 2 tsp.salt
- 2 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 8 tbsp. brown sugar
- 8 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 8 dashes Tabasco
Rinse brisket under cold water. Place in large braising pan. Mix remaining ingredients. Pour over meat. Bake at 350 degrees until tender, 5-6 hours.
This photo shows the gathered ingredients.
Simply pour the ingredients over the top of the brisket:
Pop in the oven. Roast for 5-6 hours. The recipe doesn’t say to cover, but after about 2 hours, I did cover it with aluminum foil. I find that this helps prevent the meat from drying out as it cooks – keeps the juices in the dish!
This dish is equally at home with baked beans and potato salad or, as I served here, with roasted red potatoes and asparagus. Enjoy!!
