  1. In a Dutch oven, brown beef in oil on both sides over medium-high heat; drain. Top with onion, salt and pepper. Add water; cover and bake at 325 degrees F for 2-1/2 hours or until tender. Remove beef; refrigerate overnight. Discard onion and cooking liquid. Slice meat 1/4 in. thick; place in a roasting pan. Add barbecue sauce. Cover and bake at 325 degrees F for 30-45 minutes or until heated through.

Footnotes

  • This is a fresh beef brisket, not corned beef. The meat comes from the first cut of the brisket.
  • Tip: Refrigerating the beef overnight makes it possible to slice it very thinly.

This was simple and delicious! I used a crock pot instead of broiling. I would definately make this recipe again.

This was my first time making a beef brisket. I don't use a slowcooker, so I used a dutch oven and WOW. I melted in your mouth. I used a cajun rub for the outside and it rocks!

This was very good, very tender, very well recieved!

This was easy, and pretty good. Both of my boys loved it, and they can be picky. Thanks for the recipe!
