Outstanding Oven-baked Beef Brisket

July 12, 2021

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!
