Jewish Style Sweet and Sour Brisket

Rating: 4.75 stars
This is the best brisket you will ever taste. No matter who comes for dinner, they always make sure that I'll be making this brisket. It is a very traditional dish for Rosh Hashanah and Passover but it certainly is a winner any time of the year for anyone who loves very tender beef.

Cranberry Brisket

This tangy, sweet brisket recipe makes a wonderful main dish, or a fabulous appetizer when paired with crackers or bread rounds. It's been a favorite with my husband's family for years. This recipe can also be prepared in a slow cooker.

Easy Baked Beef Brisket

Rating: 4.81 stars
For a brisket recipe, this is considered very fast. The convention of cooking it low and slow often results in dried-out meat that never reaches the proper internal temperature. Instead of waiting all day and risking such disappointment, we dial up the temperature slightly and bake it in about half the time to ensure it's both tender and moist. Garnish with chives if desired.

Simply the Easiest Beef Brisket

Simply the best and easiest beef brisket there is. Great recipe to make the day before and reheat to serve.

Brisket Marinade

Rating: 4.56 stars
My family has been using this brisket marinade recipe for about 15 years now. So easy, and absolutely to die for! Marinade is good for oven-baked or grilled brisket. You can find liquid smoke at the grocery store, near the bottled marinades.

This is absolutely fabulous and so easy. Brisket that isn't dried out can be so good. The bar-b-que sauce is also wonderful and can be used for other meat dishes.

Wine-Braised Beef Brisket

Rating: 4.65 stars
This is yummy the day you make it, but is even more delicious the next day.

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Rating: 4.33 stars
Brisket is rubbed with spices and liquid smoke and then cooked in a slow cooker with barbeque sauce until tender and juicy. This calls for just enough barbecue sauce for that smoky flavor while still allowing the flavor of the meat to come through. Hint: It's even better if you marinate it in the dry rub overnight.

Oven Barbecued Beef Brisket I

Rating: 4.49 stars
This is a great recipe for the family on the go as it needs very little attention. Choose a brisket that weighs between 4 and 5 pounds, depending on how many you are feeding.
