Savory Brisket

Updated: Sep 22, 2020

This Brisket recipe is super yummy and easy to make but requires marinating it overnight! It comes out so flavorful and tender!


1 (4-5 pound) brisket

3 tablespoons onion powder

3 tablespoons garlic powder

3 tablespoons paprika

1 teaspoon celery salt

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon pepper

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 cup water

5 (3 cups) yellow onions, chopped

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh garlic

How To Make:

  1. In a bowl, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, celery salt, salt, pepper, and mix with whisk.

  2. Rub spice mixture all over the dry brisket.

  3. Place in a deep dish covered with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 12-24 hours.

  4. Heat 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil in a large skillet, add the meat, and brown on both sides.

  5. Transfer brisket to an oven proof casserole (Dutch oven).

  6. Add water, cover, and simmer on low for 1 hour.

  7. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet, add the onions, and sauté, stirring occasionally, until lightly caramelized; add garlic, and continue simmering for a couple of minutes.

  8. Add onions and garlic to brisket pot.

  9. Cover, and continue simmering for 2.5 hours or until meat is fully cooked.

  10. Optional: Once cooked, refrigerate if serving the next day. Slicing is much easier when meat is cold.

  11. Remove the brisket to a plate, and trim all the visible fat.

  12. Then place the brisket on a cutting board, and carve thin slices across the grain (the muscle lines of the brisket) with a very sharp knife.

  13. Serve and enjoy!
