Easy and festive brisket, straight from my grandma in Newfoundland. This recipe is goof-proof and very tasty. Really good with a glass of Lambrusco, a sparkling red wine, or with ale.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder

  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon meat tenderizer

  • 1 (6 pound) beef brisket

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 2 cups water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Stir together the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, brown sugar, and meat tenderizer. Rub the spice mixture generously all over the brisket. Place the meat on a baking sheet with the fat layer up.
