Outstanding Oven-baked Beef Brisket
The mention of brisket often evokes thoughts of smoking and smokey-bbq-hickory type flavors, and smoking IS a popular way to prepare this sometimes overlooked cut of beef. But I'm here to tell you that oven-baked brisket can rival smoked brisket any day! And it's SO easy! This literally yields a melt-in-your-mouth morsel of meat, AND you can still have that smokey flavor.
Here's the how-to:
- Let the thawed brisket sit on the counter for 20-30 minutes and come to room temp.
- Sprinkle all sides with celery salt, pepper, onion powder, and smoked paprika. Briefly rub the seasonings into the meat.
- Place in a Dutch oven or other covered baking dish, fat side up (DO NOT add water), and bake overnight or all day (roughly 9 hours) at 225. No peeking!
- Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for a half hour or so.
- Slice and enjoy!
Your family/friends will think you're the best chef ever!
