Posed with a beer challenge, my initial feeling was to come up with a good brisket recipe, as nothing is as tenderizing to a brisket as some beer. I played around with some of my favorite ingredients until it was right. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
- 4–6 lb (1.5 kg–3 kg) brisket -
- 1 large onion, sliced in rings -
- 1 12-oz (355 ml) can beer -
- 1 12-oz (355 ml) bottle chili sauce -
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar -
- 2 Tbsp honey -
- 1 Tbsp beef bouillon -
- 1/2 cup water -
- 1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper -
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed -
- 1 bay leaf -
Preheat oven to 325°F (170°C). Rinse brisket and place in a 9x13-inch baking dish (or larger as necessary). Cover entire roast with onion slices. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all remaining ingredients. Pour over meat. Cover baking dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake 3 1/2–4 hours. Brisket should be fork tender. Allow to cool. Remove bay leaf. Slice and serve.
